Recall a Mongolian yurt: cozy from the inside and circular framed tents from the outside. Now imagine the exclusive lightings of Murano glass by Barovier and Toso, presented in a yurt. It’s maybe not the first combination you would think of, but it was in Milan! A creative and nomad inspired exhibition in collaboration with Paola Navone, one of our favorite designers.
Creativity from cultures
The exhibition was located in a hall at Superstudio Piu in Milan. Influenced by different cultures and nomads, Paola Navone and Barovier & Toso created an exhibition of yurts, each representing another culture, for example; Japanese, African, Indian and so on.
‘Colors’ by Barovier and Toso
Amazing chandeliers and table lamps presented in a ‘Nomadic style’ was a good move if you ask us. This is how we can imagine these lightings in different surroundings and settings, not just classical or contemporary, but somewhere else!
The lesson we learned here is that we have to be creative and keep our minds open for different cultures, styles and objects: “To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong” – Joseph Chilton Pearce.
