For FuoriSalone 2016, the Murano-based company Barovier&Toso and Paola Navone will collaborate together again for a visionary project that explores the many colors of glass in an imaginary voyage through different cultures and landscapes.
Colors is a representation of the cosmos in all its aspects, a tribute to the virtues of glass and its evocative power. The installation that will be set up in the almost 1000 square meters of the Daylight space at Superstudio Più on Via Tortona, travelers will be welcomed to a village of six large yurts (each for a specific color), where magical, fascinating moods take form in an engaging, amazing experience. The visit to each yurt will be like entering a different corner of the world, penetrating its secrets and atmospheres.
The installation will also be homage to the flexibility of glass, an extraordinary material that influences and is influenced by the cultures with which it comes into contact and embodies them, adapting to every era, every custom, every fashion.
Alongside some of the most iconic creations of Barovier&Toso, custom pieces will be made, generated by the breakdown and reassembly of catalogue chandeliers reinterpreted and remixed in a new way with colors ranging from the most traditional to the least conventional.
The synergy between Barovier&Toso and Paola Navone will enchant and transport visitors to faraway places of extraordinary beauty, like only the glass of Barovier&Toso is capable of doing.
