About Desirable Things
2014 – MILAN (ITALY)
Fuorisalone, Ventura Lambrate
Desire lies at the essence of every human existence and it defines the relationship between subjects and objects by generating a mutual recognition of individual identities.
For this exhibition IN Residence asked 25 international designers to design their own personal “object of desire”. These objects will be on show in a dreamlike “Wünschenkammer” setting, useful to stimulate a consideration about the concepts of pleasure and happiness.
“Desiderabilia” is an experiment, an acknowledgement and a survey on the conditionings that more or less unconsciously steer our individual choices and ambitions.
