About the speaker

MOTOElastico is an orbiting Space Lab founded in Seoul by Simone Carena and Marco Bruno and currently working on architecture, interiors, exhibition and art projects. Born and educated in Italy, specialized in California and rooted in South Korea since 2001, in all its projects MOTOElastico is using irony to critically challenge and playfully celebrate local customs and behaviors. The goal is to explore local cultures through the unexpected combination of original ingredients. Its design process is similar to the one used by Dub DJs: enhancing rhythms and underlying features of existing songs, with the purpose of generating new yet familiar design tunes. IN 2015 MOTOElastico was nominated Designer of the Year 2015, Designer’s Choice Award by Design House, Korea; in 2017 the iconic MOTOElastico atelier became an official venue of the First Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism. MOTOElastico works have been included in: Anyang Public Art Project, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, Italian Pavilion at the Venice Art Biennale, Korean Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale (Golden Lion), Marrakech Art Biennale, Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism and the Bi-City Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism of Shenzen.
