ENORME studio designs an outer space-like exhibition featuring nine 'astral bodies'

‘astral bodies’, an immersive exhibition designed by ENORME studio and VITAMIN ARTE, has been featured at valencia design week 2019. inspired by meteorites of different masses that enter the earth’s surface, the spanish studios designed nine meteorite models using ‘fibracolor’ — colored MDF boards manufactured by FINSA. the installation was previously presented during milan design week 2019.

each ‘astral body’ highlights a unique story behind its landing on the galician geography by revealing its physical properties, such as color, texture, and the composition of the ‘fibracolor’ boards. ‘when a meteorite touches earth it is baptized with the name where it was found. this is the case of auria, baroña, cervo, ézaro, allariz, herbón, elviña, sálvora and trevinca.’ tells ENORME studio.

 

 

curated to appear as an outer space-like environment, the meteors are grounded on gravel and stones with a backdrop that resembles stars. the exhibition is also complemented by various interactive installations including an informative desk in the center that explains the in-depth stories behind each meteor, and 35 LED tube light fixtures by VITAMIN ARTE that are programmed to emulate the fall of the meteorites on earth. to create a greater ambiance, real time audio recordings of the meteorites can be heard in the background.

 

 

the studios successfully demonstrate the potentials of the ‘fibracolor’ MDF boards, especially for decoration and interior design purposes. ‘this DM colored in mass provides aesthetic and functional novelties,’ describes ENORME studios ‘it can be covered with natural veneer or melamine, and allows the application of textures on the surface. the treatment of its surface with lacquers, waxes and varnishes is also a new possibility to work with this new material. since it is mass colored allows pantography, mechanization and leaves the board core as an aesthetic value.’
