Ten cities, nine designers, one extraordinary material. This year the Alcantara-MAXXI project, now in its fifth edition, takes us ‘around the world in a room.

For the “Local/Icons. East/West” exhibition curated by Giulio Cappellini and Domitilla Dardi, designers Studio Job, Constance Guisset, Poetic Lab, Mischer’Traxler, GamFratesi, Neri&Hu, Hans Tan, Michael Young, Poetic Lab and Cosmas Gozali created iconic objects to interpret ten cities of two main geopolitical areas, in an imaginary dialogue between East and West.

A travel narrative in images and objects suggestive of Amsterdam, Paris, London, Vienna, Copenhagen, Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei and Jakarta.
