Ecosystem of an interior
Cristina Celestino and the reinterpretation of the florist’s.
Radaelli Fioraio, via Manzoni 16, Milano
May 30th - June 11th 2022 (closed June 2nd)
The project by Cristina Celestino takes its cue from the nature of the space itself, the indoor-outdoor dialogue, interacting with the existing aesthetic and establishing a fertile synergy between an idea of design and domesticated nature. The work is organized around the relationship generated between the original architectural parts designed by Ulrich, and the designer’s new intervention: sublimating any decorative interference through the use of mirror-finish objects, an ironic but also magical tribute to the ‘nature’ of the place, and inserting contemporary elements that nevertheless jibe with the existing aesthetic approach. The installation winds through an ample space such as that of the entrance hall, and extends into more intimate, cozy zones like the room with the fountain. Everything suggests a new idea of urbanely domestic greenery. A manifesto that narrates a hybrid indoor-outdoor, public and private existence. A process of layering nurtures coexistence between material and content, suggesting a new way of perceiving and using space, to generate new habits.
