|ATTERO by Bordalo II
|Editorial; Visual Identity;
Attero was Bordalo II’s first major solo exhibition in Lisbon. The venue for this exhibition was the studio where he had been working for the past years, a vacant warehouse adapted to accommodate the display of his works and allow the public to feel immersed in the created environment. The exhibition showcased almost all series of Bordalo’s work, attracting around 27,000 visitors of all ages and nationalities, not just from the Lisbon area but also from other regions of the world. Accompanied by parallel programming with conferences, talks, and workshops, the exhibition’s initial duration was extended due to the high number of visitors.
In designing the visual identity, we chose a typography that amplified the idea of a module, reflecting the essence of Bordalo II’s work, which creates new forms from parts of something. This approach resonated with the modular nature of Bordalo’s works and reinforced the message of reuse and transformation at the heart of his work.
Beyond the visual identity, we developed a range of materials, including a book, signage, infographics, invitations, etc. This project involved collaboration with a wide array of makers and factories from multiple areas.
