triennale international exibition, Milan

The exhibition, based on a 5-year Indo-Italian research project, illustrates the consequences of democratic choice in independent India, its concrete existence and its globalized outcomes, which remain topical today.

Four examples of Democratic New Towns are presented, Jamshedpur, Bhubaneswar, Faridabad and Chandigarh, the result of interplay between the ideas and experiences of Frey, Drew and Le Corbusier and those of their Indian counterparts, Varma, Doshi, Correa and Rewal. The cities are described in detail and documented by means of photographs of their current state, now as functional and interconnected as modern European cities. 
The projects implemented by India during the process of its democratization can be considered the first step of the adoption of an inclusive system by newly independent countries. 
UniFor has supported the cultural project in the role of technical sponsor.

New Opening - UniFor Showroom Paris

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, UniFor is restoring and renewing the historic showroom of its French branch, designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa in 1979. The newly renovated spaces has been inaugurated during Paris Design Week, in celebration of both UniFor’s first 50 years - the history of which is illustrated in a prestigious book published by Skira, “UniFor. A Commitment to Architecture” - and its 40 years on the French market at its historic and prestigious Paris location on Rue des Saint-Peres. It was 1978 when the Molteni family founded UniFor France and entrusted Afra and Tobia Scarpa with the task of transforming the former residential apartment at 6 Rue des Saints-Pères into spaces suitable for receiving its clients and presenting the UniFor collection. The showroom was launched the following year. The renovation project, overseen by the architect Simone Agresta, leaves Afra and Tobia Scarpa's original project intact while reinterpreting the spaces in a modern key
