An all dark exhibition space from which there emerge, illuminated by neon lights, four settings in the colours of magenta, yellow, cyan and black.
The “Still Life, Moving Life” installation captures the gaze with its garish colours; it came about as a result of an insight by Piero Lissoni with the contribution of Elisa Ossino.
The latest innovations and most famous pieces in the collection abandon their more usual guises here, natural materials and neutral colours, to take on the stronger, bolder shades of the spectrum, in technicolor, and to take their places as the characters in a play in lively, unusual sets.
The effect is one of small monochrome sets, compositions of objects that show all Porro’s love of and attention to detail, recreating slices of everyday life one beside the other, home interiors with slow living and quality design as the watchwords.
4 micro-architectures, distributed over the two storeys of the showroom to create a story, bring out the chameleonic properties of Porro, revealing that not only black and white, but also pure colour, fully belong to its armoury.
“Still Life, Moving Life” is an installation that plays with total homogeneity and bewildering contrasts, capable of arousing sensations, memories, impressions and changes of taste and mood in the observer: 4 possibilities of life, in which everyone can freely choose the combination that most represents their own temperament, their own ideal home and their own lifestyle.
