Commercial and exhibition space

Firenze, 1974


Functional needs and existing space are resolved in accordance with an “architecture” of interiors capable of blending the scales into a unitary solution without hierarchical distinctions: the stands, classifiers and service furniture become a part of a single physical and linguistic system, which uses the most up-to-date materials and signs. A gallery-balcony forms the main exhibition axis which faces the shop windows: its walls become mechanical devices which show or hide the merchandise, creating a mobile and variable spatiality, between closure and visibility.
