The installation was designed by the Benedini&Partners Studio, under the art direction of AAPA in a space of 270 sqm at Solferino 31, Milan, in the Brera design district. Visitors access the location through two virtual walls of water, the key element of the entire project. On the left wall, a specific installation tells about the partner companies, Cristalplant® & Agape, and briefly anticipates the contents of the route. The entrance is followed by a wide space hosting an exhibition of some pieces from the Cristalplant® Biobased collection, customized by the Agape crew of designers with one-of-a-kind graphic design projects. This station flows into the next, which hosts the prototype of the winning project of the “Cristalplant® Design Contest 2014” along with the objects that were awarded a honorable mention. Next, a chillout area designed by Cristalplant® & Agape in collaboration with Elle Decor Italia, the “Elle Decor Aqua Café”. The loop of this exciting sensory route is closed by celebrating water thanks to a truly unique partner, Sanpellegrino, the producer of the mineral water that represents Italy worldwide. The overall lighting projects of the exhibition space features products from the Davide Groppi collection. Davide Groppi is a company based in Piacenza that designs and develops lighting projects such as one-off designs, installations, exhibitions and any other projects including the so-called “sartorial light”. The furniture, tables and seats were selected from the Arper catalogue, a leader in furniture specifically designed for living spaces. To better define the link with the world of the food and beverage Made in Italy, a premiere of the Prosecco Millesimato DOCG Caronelli by the renowned Caronelli Wineries of Treviso will be also hosted in the exhibition space.
