Several Extremis products such as Bistroo set, Virus picnic tables, Inumbrina parasols, Pantagruel high tables and Tiki bar stools furnish the outdoor areas of the new restaurant that you can find in the middle of the Arsenale. The cosy courtyards are the perfect spot to relax and let the impressions of the show sink in. This is planned to be the start of a long collaboration.
The curators of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition are Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara of Irish architects Grafton. They titled this years edition “Freespace” which they say describes “a generosity of spirit and a sense of humanity at the core of architecture’s agenda”. They’ve invited a selection of like-minded architects to demonstrate these qualities with three-dimensional installations of “scale and quality”. Beside that you can visit the national pavillions of 63 participating countries or attend one of the creative events in locations around Venice.
Who visits the Venice Biennale? Well, it’s a microcosm of the architecture world – hordes of designers, architects, creatives and design lovers descend on the city from May 26th until November 25th. Over 600.000 visitors are expected in 2018! Hopefully you will be one of them, because we can highly recommend it!
