A Perfect Weekend, or how design can have a social impact and modify habits and behavior.
A Perfect Weekend is a story or rather the continuation of a story started by Aldo Cibic with “Microrealities” in the last edition of the Venice Biennial and followed by “A simple life” exhibited in Verona in the “Abitare il Tempo” fair.
A story that offers us alternatives for living better and more consciously than before. A story that takes the shape of a tent or several tents but isn’t a story about camping. And, if anything, is an enticement to be sociable and spend time with others. To rediscover basic, old-fashioned values without rejecting or losing that pleasure and quality of things that makes life better.
A Perfect Weekend is an economically (and ecologically) sophisticated answer of apparent and manic luxury, or of downward ratification. Which is why the “5 star” tent, to use a standardized code, was made as an alternative route and reality to the insane crowding of mass movement and becomes the icon for a new lifestyle.
A Perfect Weekend, by complimenting the design with detailed socioeconomic research, aims to open new roads to consumption of objects that reduce consumption over time, to rediscovering the quality and core of things, without falling into an impoverished aesthetics.
A Perfect Weekend springs from reflection on the reduced buying power of the middle classes, but is also an attempt to reeducate people in material and immaterial values, ethics and aesthetics.
While at the same time searching for materials, form and structure.
In harmony with space.
