Body Building－Re-appropriate gym apparatus into furniture
The ‘body building’ exhibit, curated by Maria Cristina Didero. Designers Alberto Biagetti and Laura Baldassari collaborated in celebration of this year’s Milan Design Week to transform a bevy of humble gym equipment into beautifully elevated contemporary furniture. The duo combined and extracted elements taken from gym apparatus and have translated them into an array of contemporary and refined pieces of furniture. crafted using high-quality techniques in materials such as pony skin, leather and beaver fur, a pommel horse has been reinterpreted into a metallic living room bench, dumb bells used to support an elegant coffee table and traditional gymnastic rings can be seen as suspended tubes of light.
