First of all, let me reply to the most frequently asked question:
“What were you doing in Milan?”
- Juicy Cycling by Olga Goloshchapova and Olga Becker (Russia-Kazakhstan)
A funny way to link cycling fever to the passion for fruit: Olga and Olga worked freaking hard to explain everyone what’s going on after you sit on their juicycles! But few seconds were enough to let people literally go bananas! 🙂
- Contemporary Prophecies by Alisa Goikhman and Iohanna Nicenboim (Germany- Israel)
is an art installation about the subtle boundaries between prediction and prophecy: delicious handmade fortune biscuits (the ginger one…slurp!) contain scientific statistical statements inside. “The fortunes in the installation use this kind of language, displaying the dry facts as quasi-spiritual statements in a “broken” English. “
- Mezzo Mercato by Mezzo Atelier (Italy – Portugal)is a funny modular assembly of outdoor stalls. Selling, preparing and eating food are just some of the possible way to enjoy these iconic handmade furniture! Versatility and functionality rule here!

- La Cheminambule by Amandine Lagut and Charlotte Thon (France)
Everyone dreamt at least once to meet a mobile fire to warm up the freaking cold nights. These two french designers made it real! A huge umbrella covers a big table: the fireplace is easy to turn on and off, everything can be folded into a wooden box, movable by a normal bycicle.
Dulcis in fundo,
just let me mention one of the most amazing pavillon I have ever seen!
“Light is Time” by Citizen in Triennale left me totally breathless.
See ya! x
