Modena, Festival della Filosofia, September 2018
In the transition from objects of use to collectibles, plastic products not only realize the revaluation of form but also redeem the dignity of the material. Plastic, synonymous with falsehood, regains the right to the truth of the material. Indeed, their naked truth lies in being 'original' plastic products. No other material can boast such an explosive transit from the false to the true.
The exhibition brings together 51 design objects from the era when this material was synonymous with innovation. The curtains show on the façade of the building the blue color that invades the interior space. Here the objects in their variations of scale, shape and color are arranged at the same height to form a retro-futuristic plastic city.
