Study case 2: A Milk Bar
04.09.2021 - 12.09.2021, Salone del Mobile, Milano


A herbarium is a specimen that becomes its own image. Halfway between picture, 1:1 model and object, it is sequential. Similarly, contemporary interiors are manifold, working in multiple directions, from object to image, from media to space. While existing in diverse mediums and formats, spaces become physical in varying instances and iterations. Are contemporary interiors like herbariums, spaces whose image oscillates between content and representation?
