COS introduces the ‘New Spring’; a collaborative installation with London-based Studio Swine which is set to run throughout the Milan Design Week 2017. Studio Swine, an artistic duo between Japanese architect Azusa Murakami and British artist Alexander Groves, will create an immersive, multi-sensory experience that reflects the optimism and renewal that results from seasonality. The exhibition amazes through the no small feat of ‘Encapsulating a lifespan of emotions in an instant‘ and aims to evoke memories of joy and vitality.
Sourcing influence from the sakura festival of Japan, the ‘New Spring’ installation will center around a focal sculpture, emitting mist-filled blossoms that burst and evaporate on contact with skin, but stays momentarily when met with textured fabrics. The COS x Studio Swine installation will be open to the public from 4th to 9th April at the cinema arti – an inactive 1930s theater built by Italian architect Mario Cereghini – on via Pietro Mascagni.
