DON'T MISS:

MG FLAT


2004

The MG Flat is an interior design project exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2004. There were only two materials used: plaster and low-cost industrial hardwood, from sawmill waste. The floor bends and becomes a bed, staircase and kitchen. The plastered wall plies and becomes a shelf, overhang and closet. Thanks to a video projector coupled with a rotating mirror (technology developed by IBM), any surface can be transformed into a screen. The apartment is built around one core ambient with low-rise partitions in order to enable visibility of most of the available surfaces. This allows for projection on almost any surface of the apartment, creating a truly digital environment. Architecture of today is obsessed with the concept of structured surfaces – in the minimalist packaging of a shoebox or the surface of a “blob.”

 

On the contrary, our interest in this project is in the interplay between volume and surface.
