Mezzo Atelier in collaboration with Filippo Losi Lab delivered the Walk In Cinema for Concorto, the annual film festival that takes place at Raggio Park, in Northern Italy. The project consists of a series of pieces to coordinate and communicate within the park. 

 

Inspired by the old movie theatres and drive in’s typography, the studio created a narrative of scenographic furniture from the park’s entrance till the open air cinema, addressing the public into the various programs offered by the festival.

The structures brought together manual and digital fabrication: while letters where digitally cut in plywood with a cnc machine, new metal joints where hand made, and all the components where easily assembled connecting the wooden beams and transforming the materials into tables, benches, totems and armchairs.

The temporary installations, surrounded by green, added a lively and vibrant contrast to the park for one week. At evening, the pieces gently started to glow creating a special atmosphere and lightning up messages for the festival’s public.
