Rapt Studio | Tell Me More

by Taylor Giangregorio

Rapt Studio is debuting at Salone del Mobile with the interactive installation Tell Me More at Ventura Centrale. The exhibit in all of its glory is a Rapt-designed environment, exploring concepts of spatial involvement and emotional connection. The universal key to the experience is entering as a lone individual and exiting with a more wholistic view, as if a part of something larger.

The two-part installation begins with an arrival chamber opening to a lounge— initiating an urge to connect with other visitors. Within the space are personal theaters with luminescent curtains where guests are prompted with a question posed by the previous stranger who temporarily inhabited that space. Upon contemplation, the current guest leaves a query for the following visitor— and continues beyond the mirrored walls. The theme of inquiry is introduced into intimate conversations as threads are suspended from the vault ceilings with questions placed throughout.

Featuring drapery by Erik Bruce, lighting and fixtures by Rich Brilliant Willing, custom bar tables by Concrete Collaborative, and cocktail tables and a custom Bob sofa by Blå Station. The exhibit is open from April 9 to 14 at Ventura Centrale— and be prepared to leave as a more whole person.
