Studio Original Designers 6R5 Network as Architects

It shows the path of materials and technological solutions for surfaces in architecture through cultures around the world

SKIN, the exhibition path of MADE Expo, is the great event with a strong international connotation with which MADE Expo addresses the world of design and industry, proposing an innovative reading of the surface in an interpretation that combines the different cultures of the world.

The exhibition - event, scheduled in pavilion 11 of MADE Expo, Milan Architettura Design Edilizia, from 5 to 9 February in the Milan-Rho exhibition center, represents a new approach in the field of architecture, capable of combining the extraordinary wealth of styles and architectural interpretations with the cultural and social specificities of the nations involved in the project.

SKIN, the skin of the interiors and building envelopes, interprets every architectural surface and all the materials and technologies of which it can be constituted through the different cultures of the world, gathering the characterizing elements and the diversity of the nations represented in the exhibition, in a path of multi-colored intertwining of plots that converge towards a common center. This intertwining is the symbol of the SKIN exhibition and of the continuous movement from the global to the national dimension.

The products and technologies that make up the different internal and external surfaces of contemporary architecture are inserted in a path of memories and sensations that involves 14 countries such as SAUDI ARABIA, CHINA, FRANCE, GERMANY, JAPAN, GREAT BRITAIN, INDIA, ITALY, MOROCCO, MEXICO, RUSSIA, SPAIN, SOUTH AFRICA, U.S.A.

The settings suggest to the visitor multiple interpretative possibilities of the surface theme in architecture. The pure lines of Japanese rigorism, the Moroccan preciousness, the gold and silver of the Nordic tradition, all the constructive differences of the different nations of the world come together in the suggestions evoked by the Skin exhibition curated by the Original Designers 6R5 NETWORK studio.

The visitor of MADE expo, the designer, the interior design, the distributor and the buyer will find themselves in an evocative world tour amidst the architectural and cultural diversity that characterize our globalized world, experienced through the products exhibited by each partner company.

In addition to being a unique initiative with a strong cultural value, SKIN adds value to the international connotation of MADE Expo thanks to the presence of the great architects from different countries, on display with their latest creations illustrated through videos and blow-ups.
