Entry Description

MONDADORI MEGASTORE in Milan has been conceived by architects MIGLIORE+SERVETTO as a place with strong identity roots given by a specific combination study of different materials and colors where I-MESH has been purposely designed to be a lightweight diffuser ceiling thanks to the technical features of the metric construction of the texture where it has been weaved the Brand “Arnoldo Mondadori”. The lightweight transparency of I-MESH helps the visitors to travel through the different thematic areas where the light runs across the technical yarns of I-MESH separating yet creating continuity on a total surface of 750 sqm. I-MESH is very light, flexible and easily packed. Large areas of material are installed without the need of any special mechanical equipment. The components that make up for I-MESH are two: resin and yarn (Carbon, Basalt, Fiberglass, Technora and Zylon). Its recyclability is obtained through the re-melting of the matter.
