“Unzziping”

 

Unzziped.

Faz lembrar uma cena de Inception.

British sculptor Alex Chinneck captured the attention of Milan Design Week 2019 with his surreal “unzipping” building in the middle of Milan’s Tortona District. Chinneck’s bold combination of architecture, art and theatre was created for smoke-free innovators IQOS, in an exhibition titled “World Revealed.” Inside the space, a section of the floor was also unzipped, with the space behind emitting a hypnotic light – and the same again on an internal wall in the next room.

British sculptor Alex Chinneck has ‘Unzipped’ the façade of a building in Milan as part of the city’s Design Week festivities.
