Design office Studiopepe was founded by Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto, who design hotels, shops, brand showrooms, boutiques and private houses. They have caught eyes not only for their architecture and design but also for their art gallery exhibitions and installations. For this exhibition, they presented an installation called “Desiderio” (Desire), which consists of videos and objects that invite us to explore an imaginary constellation of stars.

9+1” is a group of artists, designers and engineers who are pursuing unconventional expressions in the creative field; the group was supposed to present their work at the Milano Salone 2020. Based on the concept of “imagine and create the future possibility of craft in Takaoka, Toyama”, they create pieces that combine traditional craft techniques with art, design and technology by collaborating with traditional crafts from all over Japan. For this exhibition, the group collaborated with Toyama Glass Studio and incorporated their technology into their design, creating a completely new genre as a glass product.
