Perfettooo! The virtual exhibition space that all designers want
The decision to give carte blanche to Objects of Common Interest, a Greek studio based between Athens and New York and founded by Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis, is particularly in line with the prerogatives of the platform and its launch. She is a designer, he is an architect, and in recent years the duo has stood out from the crowd thanks to their collections, often in limited editions and in the form of in situ installations, with archetypal forms never severe, but rather expressed in a dance of straight lines and semicircles. When asked to design the virtual space in which to display their works, Petaloti and Trampoukis opted neither for brilliant sophistication nor for technological virtuosity. On the contrary, the uncertain resolution close to a web-first aesthetic – which is, in fact, a form of calculated archaism – creates an interaction essential for a user experience that does not look at the performance, but the introspection stimulated by the musical score and by being invited to visit the ten rooms of the exhibition according to the poles of the conscious-unconscious opposition. Come Back Tomorrow, this is the title of the exhibition, underlines precisely this: the online visit can be repeated at will, according to the mood of the day.
