The installation reimagines the historic architecture of the Cortile d’Onore (the courtyard from the Renaissance period by the famous architect Filarete where the piece was on display for the first time),which features many decorative elements and human figures coming out of the walls.
“We wanted to re-create this concept in a playful and modern way by creating a wall full of surprises, where the people who inhabit the wall will be real. We hope that visitors, surprised by this installation, will want to interact with it, and that they will discover and use the pieces of furniture it hides: seats, tables, mirrors…we hope that their curiosity will make this piece very animated.” - Benedetta Tagliabue, EMBT
Too Good to Waste will take on a new shape at the band stand of Segovia’s main public square, which is the very heart of this Spanish medieval city. However, the essence of the project will be the same: an invitation to interact with an interesting design piece and to open its different components by pushing, pulling, spinning and discovering new configurations.
