Can you tell me about the Blur installation?

Blur is the setting for the “Nomad Design” exhibition, hosted within BASE Milan for the 2017 Design Week. Blur comes from a question: what is it that creates a temporary space?

First of all, it is the limit: the perception of the perimeter allows us to recognise belonging to a community within a space or to define our vital space. In the age of neo-nomadism, the definition of the working or living space is light and modifiable, as are the limits defined by the layout. Fabric walls circumscribe spaces where transparency always lets you sense something beyond, remembering the ephemeral nature of the limit. The construction system, based on a quadripartite fir pillar, in which the beams that connect the elements fit together, allowing the structure itself to be a closed perimeter, free wall, display, set design and internal partition.
