Starting from the (re) interpretation of a common object of daily use, Chromatic Screen builds a distinct element, spatial organizer, that involves all who visit it into a chromatic experience with different moments of opacity and transparency. Designed from 2000 hangers for children’s clothes from IKEA – ‘Bagis’ -, in four different colours – blue, green, pink and orange – that merge into multiple tonalities, Chromatic Screen results in a kinetic, very colourful, experience.
