Pop Up Storefront at Milan Furniture Fair 2008
This April, Storefront for Art and Architecture and Abitare magazine will be appearing in Milan for the 2008 edition of the Furniture Fair (16-21 April) with a new version of the Ring Dome pavilion previously installed at Storefront Gallery in New York. The pavilion, designed by Minsuk Cho/Mass Studies and built out of 1,500 hula-hoops and and 12,000 zip-ties, will be installed in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, the shopping arcade that connects Piazza Duomo and Piazza La Scala.
During the five days of the Fair, the pavilion will host a series of events organized by Abitare magazine and Storefront.
These will include a 100-minute dialogue between Hans Ulrich Obrist, Pierre Paulin and Rem Koolhaas; a day-long domino-interview with 50 participants, starting with Naoto Fukasawa; Gaetano Pesce in conversation with Oliviero Toscani; and a day-long open editorial meeting.
