X-hibition is an installation for the international event BIN@Porto. For this project we were asked to design space partitions for a 250 sqm room that was to host two different programs on consecutive days: on the first an exhibition of the work of twenty technological start-ups; on the second, a conference for 100 people.
The intervention should be highly flexible and able to transform the spatial qualities of the room in just a few hours. Thus, it was created a system based on the multiplication of a singular piece, a cross made of cardboard.
The layout of the installation takes advantage of the guests different perspectives, becoming, in effect, a form of interactive art.
