Following last year’s ‘Craft-Punk’ collaboration, ‘Design Vertigo’ is this year’s more cerebralÂ offering from Design Miami and Italian fashion house, Fendi.
Set within Spazio Fendiin 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. Comprising 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.
Â 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 (some worn by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna), before finishing up in an ‘immersive total environment’ by Beta Tank. â€˜Beta Spaceâ€™ comes wrapped in a series of psychedelic patterns.
