Last week, on the occasion of the Milan Design Week 2013, Japanese architects Toyo Ito and Akihisa Hirata showed their amazing installation at Lexus Design Amazing 2013, an exhibition full of unexpected and exhilarating encounters which also allowed visitors to interact with design.

Amazing Flow is an experiment in exploring new perceptions of the value of design: Toyo Ito and Akihisa Hirata installation is inspired by nature, designed to simulate the natural motion of the wind.

The exhibition space has been designed to present a dynamic scene inspired by an awareness of the flow of the wind in nature. “Our desire here was to create a design that allows visitors to experience the image of nature and humans joining to create the flow of life in the future”, explain designers Toyo Ito and Akihisa Hirata.

The incredible natural path drawn by the wind has floated in the 300 square meters exhibition space of the Museo della Permanente in Milan. Visitors became one with the flow as they strolled through the natural wood installation that brings to mind visions of a future urban environment.
