SHOWROOM EXITS
MILANO, ITALY, 2009

Situated at number 14 via Varese, right opposite the aMDL office, Exits is a showroom designed to exhibit products by the companies which designcorporate, the sales organisation managed by Roberto Cerri and Simona Cremascoli, distributes in Italy. Also featured among these are “Produzione Privata” objects. In this space, which previously housed a smithy, all the original surfaces were brought back into view, cleaned and consolidated by exhaustive restoration. The wooden beams were sandblasted, the terracotta tiles brushed, the walls stripped of their facings and their old plasterings enhanced. The floors were retained and polished and their gaps repaired with crude cement, so as to make the integrations instantly readable. The lamps and objects displayed are not hung directly from the walls, but from plasterboard panels which like blank pages can be moved as required.
