Attimo Sospeso / typographic Installation

Attimo Sospeso
Attimo Sospeso

Attimo sospeso is a typographic installation in the cloister of San Simpliciano, Milan. The work intends to provide a calming moment for the Milano Design Week visitors. We created a light and reduced typographic design by cutting out the text out of white banners of tyvec. The white banners interact with the architecture and the cut out letters let the frescos come through. By walking around the cloister the following thoughts appear above the visitors heads.

The sound of my footsteps absorbed by the roar of the city
I stop and feel the weight of my feet
so many beautiful chairs, but nowhere to sit
finally a quiet place, I might even stop.
