Marazzi for The W.I.N.D. House at MDFF
For the third year in a row Marazzi is one of the partners of the Milan Design Film Festival, annual event, sponsored by the City of Milan and EXPO 2015, held to celebrate the very best of design; an innovative platform connecting the international creative community with the public. The magnifying glass is focused this year on the news, the experimentation and the epochal transformations of the city and the territory. From the urban developments taking place in China to new the building settlements , from the different ways of sustainable living to design overrunning.
The docu-film the W.I.N.D. House sponsored by Marazzi follows the process of designing a single family house in the Netherlands and details the relationship between the architect (Ben van Berkel) and the couple who have commissioned him to design their dream home. Through interviews with these three protagonists we see how the conceptual and practical desires of the client are translated into architectural solutions and how all three respond to the results of this collaboration.
A.P. Komen and Karen Murphy movie directors comment: “"The bespoke single family house plays a special role in the history of twentieth century architecture, butwe rarely get any real insight into the people behind the design: how they experience the process, their relationship with the architect, the translation of their desires into a final design and home. The W.I.N.D. House afforded us the possibility to really explore the human side of commissioning your own, tailormade‘dream home’”.
