now, storefront for art and architecture gallery has teamed up with abitare magazine to bring a new version of
the ring dome to milan for the salone del mobile. this new dome will use 1,500 hula-hoops and 12,000 zip-ties
and will be installed in the galleria vittorio emanuele shopping arcade in central milan. the installation will feature

as well as a day's worth of domino-interviews with 50 participants, starting with naoto fukasawa, gaetano pesce
and oliviero toscani.
