Construction materials and technology mean more than mere materiality to architecture. Like fabric influences and inspires fashion design, so materials drive and inspire architecture – influencing the creativity and perception of designers and users.
Florim has been inspiring architecture for over 50 years by leading the market of quality ceramics and advanced manufacturing technologies. Thanks to innovation and excellence in technology, they have managed to contribute to the construction of eminent pieces of architecture and built environment.
Relying on this strong background, a competition starts to worldwide designers, architects and creative communities. The aim is to realise a temporary architectural installation to showcase images from the of the most relevant architectural works built with ceramics. This event will take place during the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition in the very centre of Milan.
How to create an installation that can, on one hand, embody the brand and, on the other hand, illustrate its achievements?
This first edition of the contest “EXHIB-IT!”aims to frame an installation-manifesto that can represent sustainability and quality on one of the most eminent venues for the “made in Italy”.
