DesignOFFsite 2015: the Galleria dei Benefattori and the Biblioteca inside the SIAM -Società d'incoraggiamento d'Arti e Mestieri- building will be decorated with some “incursions” of contemporary design that will create a strong contrast with the architecture and decor of the hosting spaces.
The aim is to catch our viewer by surprise, leaving him off-guard and putting him in contact with a completely different reality to what he expected, and perhaps assumed, by doing so we bring our visitor to a closer reading of design objects, beyond their aesthetic and functional roles.
DesignOFFsite it decontextualizes and transfigures reality.
DesignOFFsite is a collective exhibition with over thirty designers such as Alessandro Guerriero, Duilio Forte, Ludek Lancilotti, Basil Green Pencil, Giorgio Caporaso, Roberto Cambi, Giorgio Gurioli, Chiara Lampugnani, Controprogetto, Alessandro Mendini and many more.
