SOM was invited to create a pavilion for the Interni “Legacy Exhibition” as part of the FuoriSalone in conjunction with the 2012 Salone del Mobile in Milan. On view from April 17 through April 22, the pavilion was one of eight instalations created by design leaders from around the world working together with manufacturing giants. SOM, as the only U.S. based firm, partnered with Carrara Marmotec, the conglomerate of marble quarries in Italy, to design a pavilion that utilizes innovative fabrication technologies to create a poetic and sculptural experience. This years theme for the pavilions is Legacy, and the solid nature of the project signifies a permanency and legacy, contrasting the inherently temporary nature of the installation.
