One hundred and forty 55-inch screens arranged into 7 pillars, is showcasing Japan's unique view of the world and the beauty of its nature, bringing to life a fusion of Japan's traditional culture and state-of-the-art technology, providing an all new experiential space to fuel the imagination.
At the opening ceremony, Producer Shuichi Furumi introduced the installation as follows. "We created a three-dimensional space using 7 pillars and 140 monitors - the '7 Dimensions.' I invite you to think of it as a spatial invention apparatus. It breaks up space. It constructs new space. It creates time in space. Take time to walk around it. Go inside the pillars. Feel the space of Japanese culture. And immerse yourself in an unknown, unexplored space."
Panasonic's installation in Milano Salone 2016 is in the "FUORI SALONE" located in the city of Milan. Panasonic is playing a role in promoting Milano Salone by participating as a joint sponsor in the event "Open Borders" hosted by INTERNI magazine. Gilda Bojardi, editor of INTERNI magazine, visited the Panasonic installation and commented, "We, INTERNI and Panasonic, have a long good relationship. I believe Panasonic illustrates its technologies and ideals even stronger than before with this year's exhibition. I hope every visitor will enjoy it."
