Studio Swine to create "blossoming sculpture" for COS in Milan

Studio Swine has released a teaser movie revealing its plans for a multisensory installation for fashion brand COS during this year’s Milan design week.

The London-based studio, led by designers Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves, plans to create a “blossoming sculpture” inside a decommissioned cinema, coinciding with the Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan this April.

According to Studio Swine, the installation will “draw upon the natural and the industrial, while making minimal use of resources, to create an immersive, multisensory experience”.

“2016 was a year full of changes and crisis and so we wanted to create an installation that could offer a moment of contemplation,” said Murakami and Groves, who unveiled the plans in Milan last night.

“The inspiration for the installation was nature and the changing of the seasons,” they said.

“For us, this idea has such universal beauty. We aim to create a democratic experience which brings people together.”
