AMO adds a touch of psychedelic to prada show space with re-edition of 1960s inflatable stools by verner panton

prada has again collaborated with AMO for its men’s spring/summer 2019 show, establishing a set that is industrially elegant with a touch of psychedelic. located within the fashion house’s via fogazzaro space in milan, the exhibition space is treated as an architectural field divided into a series of squares labelled with geographic coordinates that define the positioning of the show’s guests. to complete the set, an exclusive re-edition of inflatable stools, first produced in the 1960s by renowned danish designer verpan panton, are perfectly placed within each square.

the geometric pattern invading the room is a manifestation constructed by AMO to organize the show’s choreography. whilst several grids outline seating areas, four different trajectories are unoccupied for models to cross the room longitudinally, enforcing a strict serial layout.

made from a transparent plastic, the sea of inflatable cushions compliments the show floor space that is entirely covered with industrial sheets, rendering a psychedelic yet uncanny atmosphere. introduced in the early 1960s, the inflatable stool was one of the first pieces of furniture made from the material. the stool wears a unique verpan for prada inscription.

 

update 07/11/2018: prada‘s inflatable stool is now up for pre-order at the label’s website. the piece is also available from selected prada stores retailing for $850 USD but also comes with a carry case and an electric inflating machine.
