Play On Words Exhibition

Play On Words / Giochi Di Parole is an exhibition about ideas, how they take shape and how they make a difference to our clients’ businesses.

The goal is to expose the design process and bring it into the physical realm.

Each project displayed looks at the relationship between language, context and meaning: from the playful typographic approach of the Freestyle Magazine titles, to the more rigorous work for corporate clients, the common denominator is always the manipulation of language and the exploration of its context to unveil the unique idea that is at the heart of a brief.

Vivaio @ CeranoDodici – Fuori Salone 2010

"Vivaio - Where ideas grow"

During the Salone del Mobile week (14-18 April), CeranoDodici is hosting “Vivaio”, with interiors designed and realised by iArchitects, Custard Studio and Oliver Davies, who have fitted out their Studio to tell a design story with the help of Bencore, Margraf, Passoni Luigi Sedie, Woodco and other companies.

The idea is that of a space full of energy, inspired by the concept of a greenhouse that cultivates ideas and projects.

A metaphor to explain the essence of CeranoDodici, a creative hub in the centre of Zona Tortona, in which twelve diverse professional practices coexist to create project synergies bound by the same passion for creativity in its different forms.In this “Nursery”, iArchitects, Custard Studio and Oliver Davies successfully manage to make apparently unrelated businesses interact in full harmony in a design project within “Vivaio”.

Vivaio also means respect for our environment. In each phase of the project we have strived to emply sustainable or reusable materials, with a real effort to reduce waste as much as possible.

press preview: 13 aprile h.18
cocktail by invitation: 14 aprile h.18-23
opening hours: h.10-22
