A transdisciplinary team led by Michael Vasku (Vasku&Klug architects) has created an exhibition, which brings the concept of wellness and home together. Traditional central European stoves inspired this design. In Czech Republic they have a special word for a lazy person – “pecivál”. It literally means a person who lies down on a masonry stove and does nothing. Masonry stoves were historically the centre of every household. They provided warmth, it was a place to cook and even a place to sleep, all the family life happened around a stove. Therefore masonry stove is a centrepiece of this installation.
On the one hand the exhibition’s aim is to provide a glimpse of that feeling to the visitors in Milan. On the other hand it should inspire them to be a little lazy in that hectic atmosphere of Milan Design Week.
Generally the exhibition evokes the question whether a little more laziness wouldn’t make us a little healthier and happier? This happens of course only if one does not regret but really enjoys the time when he is a layabout. The presented exhibits are concepts of products, which help to consciously enjoy laziness for the purpose of regeneration.
Join us and be a layabout, just for a while!
