Following last year's 'Craft-Punk' collaboration, 'Design Vertigo' is this year's offering from Design Miami and Italian fashion house, Fendi.
Set within Spazio Fendi in Milan, the exhibition features a series of installations by vibrant new talent, built to explore the ways in which people approach and interact with contemporary design. Consisting of four site-specific installations, the exhibition includes a commission from renowned Swiss artist Felice Varini, alongside three new works from emerging studios Random International, Graham Hudson and Beta Tank.
Opening with Varini's 'Elisse nel trapezio' - a perspective painting, which transforms from a disordered jumble of patterns into a tidy system as the viewer moves inwards - the focus of the show then shifts to an interactive LED light wall from Random International, through to a sculptural installation by Graham Hudson, which features mannequins dressed in vintage Fendi furs, before finishing up in an 'immersive total environment' by Beta Tank. ‘Beta Space’ comes wrapped in a series of psychedelic patterns.
