Off limits

Traveling pavilion for the exhibition Made in Italy

Created by retrofitting a large semi-truck, the display structure is designed to contain the exhibition "Made in Italy for sports - design off limits." A core module - which serves as exhibition space - will extend from the vehicle, consisting of a frame and an inflatable enclosure formed by an expandable membrane. Smaller modules can be created to contain or support technological equipment, making the structure completely self-sufficient.
