An enchanted garden, populated by tall trees, hundreds of plants and blooming flowers, will be located for the Design Week, in Piazza Gae Aulenti, symbol of the Milan that looks to the future. This is the intriguing project signed by the Florence studio Pierattelli Architetture,together with Flos, Vitra, Porcelanosa Grupo, Gruppo Giardini, Bruni Costruttori, Flamingo Firenze, to give the city a space in which to recover the relationship between man and nature.
Hidden Garden is a secret but at the same time infinite garden. A space of 100 smq protected by a ring of panels that conceal it from the chaotic square outside, from which only glimpses and perspectives are allowed. The outside panels – made of the innovative Krion material – are designed as “empty canvases”, which can be decorated by anyone wanting to express their creativity. Drawings, murals and thoughts will find expression for 24 hours, before being easily erased to leave room for new creations the next day. Inside, the panels themselves are lined with mirrors that create a fascinating interplay of reflections, giving the sensation of an endless space in which abstraction and reality merge.
