‘conversation pieces’ is an exploratory apartment constructed by students at ‘HEAD’, the geneva university of art and design. presented at milan design week, 2014, the installation of warped and surreal settings includes a cloud-like bedroom, customized furniture, video games and even interactive wallpaper. based on an idea by alexandra midal, the work is the result of a workshop co-directed by nitzan cohen and daniel zamarbide. comparable to scenes from a sci-fi movie, the absorbing environments examine how certain objects are able to generate a dialogue and modify interpersonal relationships between others.
