Milan Design Week, the meeting between classic design and experimentation, has back as we know it: exhibitions, performances and workshops will cross the international capital of design keeping the hybrid ‘phygital’ model. From eiDesign, we present to you some of Spanish and Latin designers that you can’t miss this weekend!
ANDRÉS REISINGER in “Too much, Too soon!”
Andrés Reisinger (Argentina, 1990) exhibits for the first time his ‘illuminated sculptures’, four metal and wooden pieces of metal and wood topped with a glowing glass orb. The sculptures become the only source of illumination in “Too much, Too soon!”, turning Nilufar Depot into a space that transports us to the free jazz of the ’60s and ’60s and those rooms full of smoke and darkness. To accentuate the impression of daze and the atmosphere of that decade, Reisinger wraps the room in stainless steel and aluminum and accompanies it with a musical composition.
Where: Nilufar Depot — Viale Vincenzo Lancetti 34.
