when

From 07th December 2018 to 03rd March 2019

where

Sala Gian Ferrari, Museo MAXXI, Rome

UniFor renews its interest in the world of architecture, art and industrial design with the exhibition Nature, L'Anello Mancante, open to the public at the Maxxi Museum in Rome until February 3, 2019.

Designed by Architect Michele De Lucchi, the installation is developed and built with the support of UniFor as technical sponsor.
The missing ring is a construction that visitors can walk through and cross inside. It consists of a metal structure covered with rectangular shingles in white HI-MACS® solid surface by LG Hausys. The tubular steel bearing frame consists of twenty parabolic portals to which a double series of horizontal beams are fixed. The slabs, laid in staggered rows, are slightly spaced so as to allow the passage of light from the outside. The installation is completed by continuous LED zenithal lighting.
The structure reaches a height of almost 5 meters for a footprint of about 9 x 13 meters on the ground.

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.

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
