BAXTER CINEMA OUTDOOR COLLECTION FUORISALONE

GALLERY

 

Inside the space of Baxter Cinema in Milan, on the occasion of the 2017 Furniture Fair, Baxter stages a big “green” installation, completely new and surprising. The entire exhibition area completely changes into a magic world where, with patience and perseverance, nature seems to get the upper hand and regains possession of those spaces that once belonged to her. Once you have gone down the big stairs that lead to the underground heart of the building, you get the feeling of entering a big garden where greenness finds its way among the domestic spaces. The new coloured leathers, whose nuances are soft and warm but with a great character at the same time, are here matched with materials like copper, iron and rattan. The most important novelties are born undoubtedly from the constant experimentation that Baxter dedicates to in the field of leather.  Actually we have directed our research towards the carrying out of ancient leathers, tanned to become completely water-repellent and, therefore, studied on purpose to stay outside. Next to these harder leathers there are also items made with soft leathers, characterized by the possibility to be washed in a washing machine, without losing their softness and lightness, main peculiarities of Baxter’s philosophy. It deals with completely natural leathers, that get old and change over time, conveying the idea of something fully lived that only nobles materials can give. Everything reminds us of woods, to live a thorough sensory experience, made authentic thanks to the multimedia installation by the video maker Davide Rapp. In order to widen this unusual and engaging experience, the ground floor’s window will hold a real flower shop, managed by the green-artists “Figli dei Fiori”.
