FuoriSalone 2023, one of the most important design events in the world, will be held in Milan in a few days and there will be many interesting news to discover. One of these is the "Urban Station" installation, designed by Asti Architetti with the Iris Ceramica Group, which aims to create a corner of the future, an eco-sustainable and technologically innovative urban area.
Located in the heart of the Brera Design District, the Urban Station will be a temporary workstation where people can sit and relax in the company of an olive tree, a distinctive symbol of Asti Architetti's project. The "urban bench" will be formed by the superimposition of different layers of Ceramica 4D, the natural and avant-garde ceramic surfaces created thanks to the full-body technology of the Iris Ceramica Group. In addition, the Urban Station will also offer wireless charging stations and smart Hypertouch surfaces that will activate the evening lighting.
But the installation is not just a work of art and design. Asti Architetti and Iris Ceramica Group wanted to create a project that could bring added value to the city's street furniture, offering an area where people can relax and recharge their batteries. The Urban Station aims to stimulate reflection on the themes of urban architecture and eco-sustainability.
In this sense, the Urban Station is only the first step of a wider path. In fact, on Tuesday 18 April, at the Iris Ceramica Group Showroom in via Santa Margherita 4, there will be a meeting dedicated to "eco-sustainable devices at the service of citizens", where the themes of urban architecture and eco-sustainability will be explored. This meeting is part of a schedule full of events hosted by the Iris Ceramica Group during the FuoriSalone.
The meetings are accessible to the public upon registration, so if you are passionate about design and urban architecture, don't miss the opportunity to participate in this unique event. The Urban Station is just one example of how design can be used to create innovative and eco-sustainable solutions for the well-being of the city and its citizens.
