Dates:Â April 8 - 13 2014
Location:Â Ventura Lambrate, Milan
The Piet Zwart Institute is pleased to announce their new exhibition, INSTRUMENTS: Reimaging the Music Room, presenting new projects by international designers from the Master of Interior Architecture & Retail Design [MIARD] programme.
The exhibition will be at Ventura Lambrate from April 8 â€“ 13, 2014. This is the 5th edition of Ventura Lambrate, held during Milan Design Week and simultaneously with the 53rd annual Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
INSTRUMENTS: Reimaging the Music Room is an exhibition that centres on the theme of the domestic soundscape and the place of music in the home. The study explores the detection and recognition of an immaterial audio presence or sonic architectures that exists in the home, engendered by our domestic rituals, their space and objects. This audio presence requires the inhabitant to recognize a spatial acuteness, cognition, and mapping, which isnâ€™t necessarily rational, visible or haptic. In turn, the inquiry has generated projects, which offer novel design solutions and alternative â€˜sonicâ€™ experiences for contemporary home life.
The exhibition is designed to simulate a black-box theatre - an immersive space for the designers to present and demonstrate their projects to the visitors. Videos complement each project, planned as performative narratives to illustrate how the projects work in space, while they also reflect the designerâ€™s idiosyncratic domestic â€˜sound diariesâ€™ that originallyÂ inspired the project.
Building upon the past two exhibitions Fabrikaat (2012), Altered Appliances (2013), INSTRUMENTS is part of a trilogy that investigates making, materiality, and application in the context of the domestic space.
