About the "City after the City" exhibition:
At the heart of the debate about the future of urban planning in the twenty-first century is the idea that the city must go beyond the combination of values and motivations that make it what it is today.
On the occasion of the XXI Triennale di Milano International Exposition, the Expo Milan 2015 area houses the exhibition named City after the city.
The City after the City exhibitions, which form an authentic string of events, present a succession of situations that illustrate a longing for a different kind of city. They avoid the trap of nostalgia for some mythical ideal city, and make no claim to reach the place where our real origins are rooted. If we admit that cities are no longer able to self-certify traditions and roots, then we can say we are facing a divisive event of great impact, which above all testifies to the opaque nature of today’s urban model. City after the City examines the symptoms of a global trend towards going beyond the conventional city. These symptoms are displayed to the general public in an effective manner.
In the two pavilions of the Expo site giving onto the Cardo entrance to the square from the Cascina Merlata walkway, the Triennale is creating the City after the city environment with the following exhibitions:
Maite Garcia Sanchis
People in Motion
A great Planetary Garden will be built in the form of a parterre between the two pavilions.

MOVISI produces healthy furniture
Studies on the emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are attracting significant interest because of the pollution they produce indoors and, consequently, the impact they have on the environment and on individual health.
In the wood-furniture industry, materials used for manufacturing (paints, glues, adhesives, etc.) provide a source of VOC emissions. Considering that people spend 80% of their time indoors, it's clear why increasing attention is being focused on these issues, especially by furniture manufacturers.
MOVISI furniture is made from ARPRO EPP which has no significant Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and is even allergy friendly and food approved.

MAKE /SHIFT shelving to become a DESIGN CLASSIC classic
Where can I buy a future design classic? Whether it's experimenting with innovative manufacturing techniques, working with bees to create a vase or using geometry to design shelves that don't need to be attached to the wall, young designers in Britain today are developing outstanding products. We asked design specialists to pinpoint the classics of the future - design that is likely to hold its own in 10, 20 and even 50 years time and give classics of the past a run for their money.

Make/Shift shelves by Peter Marigold for Movisi
Selected by Libby Sellers, design dealer and gallerist
Make/Shift, says Sellers, reflects the virtues of temporary living. "You don't need any fixings to hold it to the wall so it's versatile and ideal for the increasingly nomadic nature of our domestic arrangements," she says. Marigold (pictured), 33, has a Fine Art sculpture degree from Central St Martins and spent almost 10 years in theatre and stage design. Make/Shift is his first commercial project; made from polypropylene, the shelves are simple yet arresting. "I think creating banal objects that are highly polished but have no substance is a bit of a crime," he says. Read full article
