luca trazzi's dandelion installation at milan design week

‘dandelion’ installation is made with steel globes and polychrome disks and has been designed by luca trazzi for the colonnade at palazzo anguissola and the giardino di alessandro, on the occasion of milan design week 2018. the installation is continuing the theme of last year’s installation entitled poesie di neon, dedicated to lost love by suggesting the background to the situation, the dream of the person loved, in the guise of the image of the dandelion.

trazzi’s dandelion is a spring flower that is transformed into a ball of fluff the very moment it blossoms. it entrusts its seeds and its future to the wind, scattering the desires of young people in love. the idea of fleeting youth is thus closely tied to the dandelion flower itself an expression of youthful hope — the weeping sigh for the pains of love and yet a longing too for a sunnier season and a rebirth.

this vital life-giving aspect of the flower has forever encouraged us to see within it an invitation to go forth and be confident as we stride through life, breezing through events that appear to be guided by chance. lighting dandelions up by night means that we are striving to keep our energy flows forever strong and to let the thoughts of the general public to scatter and blossom elsewhere.
