The Anticipation exhibition is being held in a former metal factory, and represents the "fusion of machine, craftsmanship and tradition" according to the Amsterdam-based designers.
One room features a circle of metal stools, made from panels that have been finished in the same paint process applied to the LF-FC car, which was revealed at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. Colours were layered by both hand and machine – borrowing on traditional Japanese lacquering techniques – and change between grey and blue, depending on the light.
A second room houses an installation that has been designed to reference Japan's early textile industry. A large metal framework holds thousands of threads with coloured sections, which recreate the shape of the LF-FC when a mechanism moves up the frame to stretch them.
The piece is held in a light-filled room, surrounded by wood and paper screens similar to those found in Japanese buildings.
Formafantasma's third installation uses hydrogen fuel cell technology to power four large stainless steel pieces, shaped like giant off-centre clock faces. Each of the items moves slowly to create a "subtle choreography", while a supporting reflective pink platform hides the power source.
"The installations mix contemporary finishes, such as car paint, cast resin and stainless steel, with more traditional materials such as cotton fabric and pine wood," said the duo.
The Anticipation exhibition is being held in the exhibition space at T32 Torneria/Carrozzeria, Via Tortona 32.
