Close takes his chainsaw to the streets of Milan

Architect will give a live demonstration of ‘furniture transformation’ in Milan today

His publicity says: ‘Somewhere in the streets of Tortona, Thursday, 23 April at 5pm you will hear the sound of a chainsaw. That is the signal to come towards the sound, don’t run away.

‘ will be sawing away a piece of a cupboard to expose its new function as a mobile bubble bar. The event will be followed by a drink.’

‘By cutting away parts or by adding new ones, a piece of furniture gets a new span of life. The furniture used dates to our grandparents, has an emotional value, but lacks the necessary quality to remain useful. By transforming them they keep the emotional value and regain a central place in our living space.’
