“’A Thinking Room’ is an installation designed by David Lynch. The installation was designed by David Lynch specifically for the Salone del Mobile which proposed it to him. Once David Lynch gave his support to the project, Salone del Mobile asked Piccolo Teatro for the creation of the installation. Why a theatre? Because actually it is scenography.”

“Inside this space we find a throne and very large armchair. Inside this armchair we find a small table, we find some papers, we find markers, water colours, pens, and this means that this room allows people to think, and after that people can put their thoughts on paper in any form of art, by painting or writing.”

“The brands that are participating to Salone del Mobile do their part in trying to innovate on how resources are used during production processes, but also by the products themselves. But we hope that creating such a space within the chaos of the fair, sort of like, creates an opportunity for people to reflect on what it means to deal with limited water resources and how they can do their part in improving and changing their habits to sort of contribute to solving the issue.”
