Museo della Scienza e della Tecnologia
British design company, Tom Dixon, takes over 4 spaces at MOST including a Luminosity show, Dezeen studio
powered by Jambox, live industrial manufacturing from Trumpf and a Gelateria from Carpigiani Gelato University.
We dominate the Via Olona entrance with a series of illuminated interconnected tunnels which throw visitors into a
ghost train experience, exploring light by presenting our lamps and shades at their most radical. Visitors follow a
journey through extreme and angular shadow-play, exposed technologies and iridescence which challenge
senses and perspectives, de-mystifying ideas of artificial light. Illuminated tunnels and boardwalks are built
exclusively in collaboration with UPM ProFi, a unique wood plastic composite decking and cladding material that
combines the best characteristics of cellulose fibres and plastic.
In the window Dezeen studio, powered by Jambox, set up a broadcast centre furnished by Tom Dixon, holding
exclusive interviews and streaming live coverage across MOST of the freshest new content in Milan.
A digital industrial revolution is put in full view of visitors, in collaboration with international machine giant Trumpf,
where Tom Dixon will control 2 sheet metal machines which punch and bend our exclusively designed Stamp
chair (above) and Stamp lamp live on-site, which be giving away to visitors all within a reconstructed 19 Century railway station.

A futuristic Anglo-Italian Gelateria is created in collaboration with the Carpigiani Gelato University, who give away
free gelato and create the University experience teaching visitors the elaborate process of making the Italian
