Milan Exhibition «Comet»

Milan - 2008 - 2010

The work is inside a revamping project of an unused portion of Milan Exhibition district (Pavilions 5 and 6) and its integration with adjacent MIC, that in 2011 was the biggest congress centre in Europe, with 18k seats, a 1’500 seats auditorium, a 4’500 seats planetary hall, 73 modular rooms from 20 to 2k seats and 54’000mq exposition surfaces.

The comet has been designed considering a combination of 8’000 meters of luminescent rays that detach from a more solid nucleus, generating a tail. Each ray is supported by light steel truss beams. In the middle of these beams 8’000m of light flow in Leds powered by photovoltaic panel (thin silica layers).
