a collateral exhibition organized by migliore+servetto architects called ‘the new components code’ will provide a sensitive interpretation of solutions presented by exhibitors, thanks to the unique way in which products are placed in harmony with their commercial setting. the overall exposition space which features a central promenade at its centre, surrounded by stands and booths, has been developed along a double theme: commercial on one hand, with an in-depth interpretation of the products on show; and analytical on the other — making direct comparisons between the two. migliore servetto space interiors i saloni designboom
