Design Variations 2021: Aires Mateus for Palazzo Litta

On the occasion of Milan Design Week 2021, the Main Courtyard hosts the temporary installation 'A beach in the Baroque'

19/07/2021 -Surrounded by the rigorous architecture of Palazzo Litta, the Main Courtyard will host the temporary installation A beach in the Baroque by Portuguese studio Aires Mateus for the Design Variations 2021 event, curated by MoscaPartners during Milano Design Week.

The project underlines both the need for a renewed state of cohesion and the need to simply have some fun through the playful juxtaposition of the installation with the surroundings such as the obviously temporary pop-up nature of the site-specific work in contrast with the permanence of the Courtyard and the palazzo, the visual levity of the exhibit in contrast with the cultural formality of the location, the bright colours in contrast with the sobriety of the architectural materials.

The central element of the installation is an “oversized” cabin. This fully customized and fitted out Supercabin will be produced by a consortium of partners: Canducci Group srl, Soltech srl and DiegoFabbri Outdoor Solutions. After the presentation of the cabin at Palazzo Litta, the consortium intends to make it become a veritable icon of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The Supercabin will be installed on a platform with adjustable supports supplied by Eterno Ivica.
