Operae’17 / Exhibition
Exhibition at Operae Independent Design Festival 2017 – Lingotto, Torino.

— Effimeri is a collection of coffee tables and sideboards produced by URBO and inspired by the ephemeral structures installed during the “festival delle luminarie” in Southern Italy. Their architecture also recall the temporary installations of the universal exhibition between the late 19th century and the early 20th century. The structures of Effimeri, so light and slender that they look like a déco drawing, hold iridescent mosaics. The kaleidoscopic effect of the tesserae recalls the colourful luminarie.
