Let's venture into a more plastic world

After Milan and Buenos Aires, having gone through Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, the international exhibition “Plasticidades: Plastico + Design” (“Plasticities: Plastic + Design in English) arrives at Shopping Metropolitano Barra, in Rio de Janeiro city, Brazil. Organized by Altherswanke Comunicação and curated by journalist Andrea Magalhaes, the event shows the most surprising plastic design, from August 13 to September 6.

There are about 100 pieces, from Brazil and other 15 countries (Germany, Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Spain, United States, The Netherlands, England, Italy, Switzerland, Thailand, and Venezuela). Creations by renowned foreign designers, such as Karim RashidZaha HadidGaetano Pesce, and J-me Studio, and Brazilians, such as Irmãos CampanaGilson MartinsZanini de ZanineMana Bernardes, and Renata Moura. The aim of the exhibition is to surprise visitors with unusual and humorous products, all them full of design and with the same main raw material: plastic.

“I had the Idea of the exhibition exposição 12 years ago, after writing a series of reports where plastic was the principal subject. I joined the raw material with design and, then, ‘Plasticidades: Plastico + Design’ was born”, says the curator Andrea Magalhaes,  who is also editor of ESCALA and DORCHESTER Magazine.

The concept of the architectural project is signed by Franklin Iriarte and Andrea Menezes (A + F Projetos). The interior design project is by Rosane Servino and Juliene Assed de Carvalho (Servino & Assed). Josue Fernando is the graphic designer of the exhibition and Filipe Marques, the web consultant.
