Torino 2008 World Design Capital

During October 2008 Studio OOOMS will be showing work in Torino. This third event-exhibition in the calendar of Torino 2008 World Design Capital opens to the public in a setting symbolically and structurally suited to housing the results of an unusual encounter between mixed communities, designers and companies: the Palafuksas in Piazza della Republica 25. 

In the centre of a square that tells the story of waves of immigration and stratified attempts at adaptation, which speaks Piemontese, writes in Arabic and wears Chinese clothes, rises the luminous and open container of an exhibition that includes among its participants highly important names in world design, from the Japanese Naoto Fukasawa, to the Catalan Martì Guixè, the Brazilian Campana brothers and Jasper Morrison from Britain,
but also the Italians Giulio Iacchetti, Matteo Ragni, Carlotta de Bevilacqua and many others, for a total of forty eight protagonists of unusual triangles of designers, companies and communities.
