Milan Design Week: the Litta Variations/4 th movement at Palazzo Litta

London architecture studio Asif Khan is the selected guest of the fifth edition of the annual event. On view are brands, academic institutions, products, and designers from the international #design landscape. From April 12-22, Palazzo Litta, the historical landmark in the heart of Milan, takes center stage for contemporary #design with the show The Litta Variations/4th Movement, a project curated by DAMN° and MoscaPartners.

The past editions of the series A Matter of Perception had explored how everyday objects are perceived. As their titles suggest, the 2015 edition and the 2016 edition Products & Materials with the installation of Marcio Kogan and Tradition & Technology with Diébédo Francis Kéré, respectively, focused on products, materials, tradition and technology. The 2017 edition, Linking Minds, centered around projects born from meetings, collaborations, friendship, mutual trust and experience, with the intervention by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, achieving such noteworthy success that the last edition counted more than fifty thousand visitors. The upcoming 2018 edition The Litta Variations/4th Movement is inspired by music practices and particularly by the formal technique of variation.

From music to #design, the challenge is to investigate the concept of variation in the creative processes of studios and brands. The Great Courtyard of Palazzo Litta hosts Tempietto nel Bosco, an installation by the London-based studio Asif Khan debutting at Milan #design Week.

Khan is renown for his exceptional projects which include the MegaFaces pavilion at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, the Coca Cola Beatbox in London at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, the Summer House at the Serpentine Galleries in London, the Guggenheim Helsinki Plan, the U.K. Pavilion at the Expo 2017 in Astana, the Hyundai Pavillion in PyeongChang during the 2018 Winter Olympics, and the Museum of London in West Smithfield.
