COS × STUDIO SWINE
SALONE DEL MOBILE 2017
For the sixth year running, we’re celebrating Milan’s Salone del Mobile design fair with a specially commissioned installation. Partnering with London-based design duo Studio Swine, we have created New Spring, an interactive installation and multisensory experience in the city’s historic Cinema Arti.
Designed to use minimal resources, the installation presents ephemeral materials in a strange new context; delicate mist-filled ‘blossoms’ that disappear on contact with skin, but can be held by visitors wearing special gloves.
Producing these blossoms is the installation’s bold centrepiece, a tree-like sculpture that references
the ornate chandeliers of Milanese palazzos.
