Triennale Design Museum, 2014
Galileo was realized for the Exhibition "Nazionale Italiana Design" organized by Triennale di Milano during Fifa World Cup 2014, involving 11 designer to investigate the theme of spaces changing to watch football games.
I thought about a "hermit-supporter", a solitary kind that watches football game silently, concentrated as he's actually playing the game. I imagined him set apart on a quite beach, with the football event streaming from the smartphone.
Galileo is a 4 wooden pieces kit for self-assembly. You can insert Galileo in the sand like a parasol: the user places his mobile, which image is enlarged through a fresnel lens that will zoom it up to a small television. For real hermit supporters!
