Tram Corallo Milano Design Week 2018

Tram Corallo brings on stage a suggestive screening room on rails, an unexpected and evocative place, an authentic travelling salon inside a historic tram from 1928, reinvented in a contemporary way.
The project is inspired by the theme of the journey, as an experience with dream and surreal overtones, that the designer carries within a d’antan cinema set up.

Milan and its urban landscapes are the main subject of the surreal footage that enters through the ribbon windows at the back of the tram, in a dimension that seems to travel in space and time.

Through a project of totally tailor-made interior design, unusual and precious for a transport vehicle, the environment reflects the designer’s aesthetic, where precious materials and references to the past, contemporary intuitions and visionary spirit are harmoniously combined.

Inside, the division into two zones creates two specific moments, recurring situations in theaters and cinemas.
The foyer, seen as the main volume, mimics a soft, enveloping waiting room, featuring rigorous settees, windows screened by abundant Rubelli drapes visible from the outside, and soft inlaid carpeting.
The back of the streetcar, behind a light passementerie curtain, introduces to the intimate screening room, where the visitors, seated comfortably on ottomans, can experience an unforeseen cinematic perspective on the city of Milan. (press release
