M+S will present two projects:
Solferino 28 – Time elevators: an installation on the intangible concept of time in the courtyard of Via Solferino 28 in Milan, in the heart of the Brera district: here, through a multimedia facade and special lifts used as time machines, visitors will be able to enjoy an immersive experience in search of the meaning of time and its multiple forms.
