Benedetta Tagliabue – EMBT Architects in collaboration with Fundació Enric Miralles, present the exhibition ‘PERPETUUM MOBILE – The Dancing Furniture of Enric Miralles & Benedetta Tagliabue’s home’, next Monday 6th of June at the Milano Design Week 2022.

Showing as part of Interni Design Re-Generation at the Università degli Studi di Milano, this exhibition brings together recreations of nine of the furniture pieces and objects from the nineties designed by Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue for their home in Barcelona, now revisited and produced with the support of the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC).

‘PERPETUUM MOBILE’ provides a unique insight into the detail and craft of the architects’ domestic environment, including tables, seating and shelving designed between 1992 and 1999 and a recently discovered piece and produced for the first time in 2020.

All these pieces have been reproduced in a range of sustainable American hardwoods donated by AE Maderas, but never put into commercial production. Although each piece is unique, they all demonstrate Miralles’ vision of the ‘house in motion’ – a domestic space in which each piece of furniture does not have a defined place or a set purpose but can be moved or modified to meet the needs of the moment.
