prostoria’s factory is a research lab for developing prototypes and producing furniture from wood, leather, metal and fabrics of natural origin

 

 

the ambience and architecture of the exhibition by numen/foruse and simon morasi piperčić emerges from the composition of high plank blocks that are usually stored in prostoria’s drying room until they reach their mature stage for processing into top-quality furniture. the massive timber structure used holds several warm interiors, hallways and outdoor terraces suggesting environments such as a home, office or a large club. the exhibition was made as a result of prostoria winning as many as 3 german brand awards 2021 and was open to the public from june 11th until 19th.

‘revisiting factory’ is a continuation of the project from 2020 titled ‘revisiting analogue’. both exhibitions present a new way of communicating the brand experience that prostoria created as a response to the impossibility of presenting new products at international fairs, which have been cancelled due to the covid-19 pandemic. ‘revisiting analogue’ won the other two german brand awards 2021 for storytelling & content marketing in the excellence in brand strategy and creation.
