Purpose and Values
For Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2018 Show, AMO creates a set that interrupts the severe linearity of Auguste Perret’s salle hypostyle of Palais d'Iéna in Paris.
The space is dominated by a continuous row of plastic chairs that intimately cluster around the catwalk, creating a scenographic horizontal effect.
The irregular brick structure at the storied Palais creates multiple fragmented levels that welcome guests seated at a different distance from the catwalk, and features a contrast between modest and unexpected materials, bestowing a ‘natural’ atmosphere upon the show.
Natural light streaming through plastic screens completes the setting, projecting an entire mirror of colors that mediate between the size of the project and the majesty of the surrounding scenery.
