For the 54th edition of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, OMA, with Petra Blaisse-Inside/Outside, collaborates once again with furniture manufacturer Knoll, designing This is Knoll-pavilion and an exhibition celebrating the 100th birthday of Harry Bertoia.
The pavilion at the Salone displays several of Knoll’s most iconic pieces combined with a selection of more recent products. Divided into six large zones, with the previous Tools for Life collaboration at the center, the design leads the visitor through a carefully choreographed path, from past to present and from interior to exterior. The overall layout was composed together with Inside/Outside, focusing on the use of color in order to create a diverse set of atmospheres, and using as floor pattern the Monotype #75 drawing by Harry Bertoia.
