At its core, the Milan Exposition Wall is a display unit, at its best it’s an interior accessory that can be used to not only as a display platform but to enhance the interior architecture of the spaces in which it is installed. Named after the city of Milan which is known for its fine art, modern & contemporary art, fashion & design, churches and basilicas as well as its modern architecture, so it is no surprise that this versatile Corkbrick piece is a must have in buildings that are used for all sorts of exhibitions and viewings.
Indeed, the Corkbrick team designed the Milan Exposition Wall not just to enhance the beauty of all the things that Milan is famous for, but to also be an extension of the structures of the interior spaces of the buildings in which such things are put on display, beautifying their internal architecture while also adding extra functionality and by so doing build upon the legacy of beauty, innovation, artistic expression and impressionism which we inherited from the renaissance period, which is best demonstrated in architectural works such as the Duomo di Milano,, .
Coincidentally one of the most prominent figures of the renaissance period, Leonardo daVinci lived in Milan during the time that the world famous Duomo di Milano was conceptualised, and even though his contributions to its design never reached construction stage, we can never downplay daVinci’s contribution towards the creation of some of the most beautiful buildings in the world, as we all towards art, science and medicine. In fact some of his creations are not only astoundingly beautiful and ingenuous they are also almost too numerous to mention. Likewise the Milan wall takes a page from Leonardo's story and lends itself very well to complementing the already rich heritage of beauty, artistry and elegant architecture that has become a hallmark of Milan and many other European cities built during the renaissance period.
As such this wall lends itself especially well to the purpose of serving as an exhibition display wall for painting and photograph exhibitions, and when recesses are created in the wall by changing the configuration of the brocks from which it is assembled it could also be used as a trendy display unit to display pieces like sculptures, vases or even rare historical artifacts.
Its zig zag design creates negative spaces that help to highlight whatever is on display, and this feature also makes it ideal for the presentation of marketing collateral during conferences, seminars, and promotional events.
Its contemporary design adds aesthetic value to open spaces, and it can be used to disrupt the monotony of large open areas so as to create spaces that are pregnant with a sense of excitement and purpose. And because the piece is not only portable, but light as well as very easy to assemble and dismantle, the wall itself can be moved around the room to create different effects or even dismantled and reassembled to create a totally different design piece.
For example, the same brocks that are used to assemble the Milan Wall can be reconfigured to make to Malta Coffee tables, which can be placed at strategic points in around and an exhibition space to allow viewers the luxury to sit down and rest while they discuss amongst themselves or exhibition staff the merits of the pieces that they have viewed.
Or even the L Shaped Bologna Wall, which can serve to create separate office space or private meeting rooms within the confines of the exhibition hall.
And this is the true genius of Corkbrick, the fact that the individual brocks can be used in many different configurations, Corkbrick like Lego on steroids.
By now I am sure that your imagination is in overdrive, and you are asking yourself what else you could create with this amazing product, to be honest when it comes to Corkbrick the only limit is the limit which you place upon your imagination, and if you have a bit of time we suggest you spend some time creating some concepts yourself using our Corkbrick Play App. As for us, we cannot imagine any reason why all listed buildings like museums, art-galleries, castles or any other buildings that used for exhibitions and expos in Europe will not all be using Corkbrick within the next 5 years.
