A one-of-a-kind garden where balance and paradox reign

XL Extralight displays Paradox Garden at Milan Design Week 2022 – a site-specific installation project skillfully conceived and curated by Parasite 2.0.

XL Extralight, the ultra-light material by definition thanks to a revolutionary patented Finproject technology, displays ‘Paradox Garden’ at Milan Design Week 2022 – a site-specific installation project skillfully conceived and curated by Parasite 2.0.

An innovative lightweight foam technology, XL Extralight brilliantly stands out for its comfort, shock-absorption, durability and much more.

Fuelled by design and lightness as well as challenging conventional rules – “for this year, we had in mind the creation of something that could communicate the cornerstones of our ingredient brand in a way that is unexpected and different from the usual. 

This is why we turned to Parasite 2.0, whose experimental approach has enabled them to interpret our character and make it tangible, through intriguing machines that float in balance, above elements made of XL Extralight” says Carlo Vecchiola, Foam Design Product and Brand Manager XL Extralight

A seamless expression of an authentic vision – five paradoxical machines staged in the Paradox Garden effortlessly float in balance above elements made of XL Extralight. 

These eclectic polymeric giants detach themselves from the earth in an extreme balancing act, challenging the observers and without the need for mediation or captions – the machines speak directly to viewers.

This exhibit further showcases the complementary approach in harmoniously combining innovation, sustainability and the physical as well as mechanical properties of XL Extralight with a distinctive empathetic and intuitive language.

“With XL Extralight; their technology and materials – we were able to give physical form to some of the research themes we have been investigating in recent years, one of which is the dissolution of the artificial-natural boundary” says Annalisa Rosso, Design Curator for the installation.
