NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, is taking part to FuoriSalone 2021 within the event-exhibition Interni Creative Connections held from the 4th to the 19th of September at Università degli Studi di Milano Ca' Granda.
Reclaiming the past and becoming aware of creative processes, NABA will present an installation that dialogues with the spaces of the University of Milan: among vaults and columns insinuates a different colonnade.
The students of the Bachelor of Arts in Design of the Academy, under the supervision of Claudio Larcher, NABA Design Area Leader, and of Sara Ricciardi, NABA lecturer, have designed "High Intensity Design Training – Training with the own past ", an interactive installation that reclaims the archetype element of the surrounding architecture. The central structure will recall a column as an architectural element that, visually divided into capital, shaft, and base, becomes soft and incites to action, turning into a punching bag-like training tool to hit, dodge, hug. The supporting frame will recall the vaults of the hosting architecture, while the background will show unprecedented buildings where columns are erased to prepare to a new re-writing.
By reclaiming and re-interpreting the themes of awareness and caretaking, in the framework of Interni Creative Connections, NABA students have been indeed engaged in training and invited to carefully look at the past in order to become aware of the responsibility that rests on creativity as a necessary tool to re-write and re-design the complex system of relationships and connections in the contemporary world.
This won't be the only occasion to see young NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti designers busy with the design week. Seven projects by our students graduated in the Academic Year 2020/21 have been selected among the ones submitted by over 300 design schools from all over the world, to be displayed at The Lost Graduation Show, an exhibition dedicated to young, newly graduated designers, curated and conceived by Anniina Koivu in the scope of "supersalone", a special event organized by Salone del Mobile. Milano and curated by Stefano Boeri that will be held in September.
At the same time, on the occasion of the Milano Design Week, NABA will host at its campus at 20, via C. Darwin, an installation created from the winner prototype of Prototype the Future, a project launched by the Academy in collaboration with Siemens Elettrodomestici.
