The Dancing Furniture of Enric Miralles & Benedetta Tagliabue’s home

Perpetuum Mobile – Los Muebles bailarines de Enric y Benedetta muestra el lado menos conocido de Enric Miralles (1955-2000) como diseñador de muebles. La exposición muestra los muebles y objetos que diseñó junto a su compañera Benedetta Tagliabue para su casa en Barcelona, España.

A Gothic building whose walls were knocked down to create an open storage space in the 1950s, the home of Miralles and Tagliabue imagined a house on the move, where even the furniture did not have a fixed place or form but could instead be moved or modified according to the needs of the moment. The exhibition provides a unique insight into the detail and craft of the architects’ domestic environment, including a recently discovered piece, rediscovered in 2020 from within Enric Miralles personal sketch books. Whilst Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue’s interior projects have been exhibited extensively, this is the first time the unique domestic landscape of their Barcelona home will have been publicly shown in an exhibition in Italy.

The exhibition consists of pieces of furniture and objects developed mainly for the home of architects Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue, which have been reproduced and displayed thanks to the support of the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC), in a selection of sustainable American hardwoods, donated by AE Maderas. Perpetuum Mobile is supported with lighting fixtures, also designed by Benedetta Tagliabue, from Barcelona based lighting producers Bover.

The exhibition is designed by Benedetta Tagliabue – EMBT Architects, in collaboration with Fundació Enric Miralles.
