Tron-inspired furniture to hit Milan design fair
Tuesday 05 April 2011
On the occasion of the Salone del Mobile (April 12-17) next week, Disney has put together a show of rooms inspired by its film
Design companies including Studio Ito Design, LagoStudio, and AquiliAlberg have contributed creations, all of which were made using DuPont's Corian solid surface, to outfit a 'safe house' inspired by movie character Kevin Flynn's virtual home.
The project - which will be on display at Padiglione Visconti (via Tortona 58, Milano, in the Zona Tortona area) - features a bathroom with a tube mirror, a bedroom with a free-standing tree, and a futuristic home theater inspired by Flynn's Arcade.
All rooms recreate the characteristic Tron feeling thanks to geometric forms and backlit elements.
