Ultra Flying Objects are an opensource collection of fanciful paper aircrafts, toy planes and flying machines planned by designers and artists for Tam Tam and ilVespaio. This extraordinary fleet is exhibited at the Milan Malpensa Airport from the 13th of September 2017, thanks to Comieco, Sea and Volandia.
The exhibition that welcomes and leads passengers in transit through Terminal 1 also involves Volandia, the Park and Museum of Flight, where kids can create signature paper airplanes.
UFOs at Malpensa is an opportunity to encourage creativity to take off, as well as to further enhance the incidence of separate paper and board collection in Italy, because recycling also means reducing the consumption of new raw materials.
The project was conceived, curated, and implemented by Sebastiano Ercoli and Alessandro Garlandini of ilVespaio, in cooperation with Tam Tam.
