This set-up is characterised by an illuminated sign and a rich dialogue with the historical environment. A delicate intervention is intended to highlight the dual beauty of the location as well as the clothing and the textile materials on display. A dynamic system of different layers defines the various thematic areas, rising from the ground in the form of a gracefully flying carpet and made up of colourful membranes. Above them, thin wireframes with micro-LEDs emphasise the creations. Inside each room, a strong connection between art and fashion is highlighted by wide wall mirrors.
