Gentile Futuro - A kind future

Michele De Lucchi
05.02.23 to 27.08.23


From February 5 to August 27, the CID - Grand-Hornu presents an exhibition of nearly 1200 m2 dedicated to the work of Michele De Lucchi and his multidisciplinary studio AMDL CIRCLE (aka Circle), internationally recognized for its humanistic approach to design. The 30-person transgenerational team is dedicated to architecture, interior and product design, graphic design and installations.

For this exhibition, Michele De Lucchi's Circle sheds light on the "humanistic" approach of his projects, focused on the constant evolution of human needs. The exhibition is articulated in two paths that move simultaneously and in a complementary way from experimentation to design and from visionary to architecture. We live in a time of great change driven by scientific discoveries and technological advances. Despite this phenomenal evolution, our vision of the future remains dark and gloomy. Circle believes that it is necessary to introduce a more confident imagination in human capabilities and wants to respond dynamically to the increasingly complex challenges of humanity.

The experimental design objects of Produzione Privata, exhibited in the Hay Store, and the visionary architectures of Earth Stations, told through videos and models in the Stables, are all scenarios imagined by Circle, in which modern man evolves, in search of new ideas and a better understanding of his ambitions, with the necessary respect for the planet and other human beings.
