Among BASE Milano’s many offerings at Milan Design Week (“an experimental itinerary that ranges from the microworld of a bedroom-studio to the collective sphere of the neighbourhood”), the “Future Visions. Temporary Home.” exhibit seems especially prescient—and undeniably fun.
This isn’t merely an exhibit but an actual living circumstance, as both local and international designers will inhabit the living exhibition as residence and workshop for five days.
Future Visions. Temporary Home. is thus a real-time experiment as well as a proposed suite of solutions to cultural and ecological challenges—from resource use to infection control; from the potential (and potential dangers) of technology to the evolution of the domestic realm
The different approaches range from the flip to the philosophical, as in Julian Gorras’ study of the way movement, interaction, and emotion can help mould material and shape.
