the milan-based designer combined craft and technology in an immersive installation curated by alice stori liechtenstein and produced by 5VIE art + design. the space features an interactive large sphere surrounded by velvet and embroidered textures, tapestries and crystals to explore the importance of heritage, in personal and collective terms. ‘arcadia’ references the castle’s beauty and serenity and acts as a precursor to the legacy exhibition taking place from 4 to 7 of may in hollenegg, where visitors will be able to walk in many rooms of the castle normally closed to the public.
