ESODO

ESODO IS A UNIQUE RUG THAT TELLS THE STORY OF FLUXES AND MIGRATION IN RECENT ITALIAN HISTORY. 

ESODO IS PRODUCED BY KARPETA AND PRESENTED FOR THE FIRST TIME DURING MILANO DESIGN WEEK 2017

 

 

After the massive italian migration at the start of  XX century, we are now witnessing another crucial, yet more subtle, exodus -  today's  more and more people decide to relocate abroad, moving freely across a border-free Europe and beyond to seek better life conditions and job opportunities. 

ESODO tells the story of this phenomenon by tracing the movement of migration (all the flowing pink lines) from the 20 Italian regions, symbolically represented by each circle from which flows of exodus depart. All data is based on the official ISTAT and EUROSTAT reports of 2015 and 2016, thus representing an unconventional depiction of the traditional statistical infographic that here becomes a real map to step onto. 

The atlas rug is realised in silk and wool with embossed knots and tangles all round. The visual translation of the statistical data is developed and designed with Martina Merlini.
