The Salone del Mobile debutant Rapt Studio (US) will explore the emotions of connection in the interactive installation Tell me more at Ventura Centrale. Upon arrival, visitors will encounter drapery-clad "stages", within which each person is asked to answer a question posed by the stranger who has preceded them. The guests will next move into a lounge, where they are encouraged to strike up a conversation with the people all around. For the presentation the studio is working together with Rich Brilliant Willing, Moooi Carpets, Mae Engelgeer, Erik Bruce, Dzine, Sancal, Blå Station and The Bradley Collection.
