Works done as N!03 [ennezerotre]


NEO was founded by Fabia Molteni, Cinzia Rizzo, and Franco Rolle. The acronym NEO synthesizes the essence of our research and projects in designing and creating narrative environments. Our work is particularly focused in the area of multimedia exhibitions and museums, but is open to any context involving the communication of a place. Designing narrative environments means creating stories that simultaneously involve a physical space and the present time, the here and now, providing an intrinsic philosophical value to the direct experience.

As we often design museum exhibits, another fundamental element of our work is to ensure the longevity and value of the experience and of all its structural elements, from the technology, to remaining relevant among new trends, and to the ability to update the technology and the content.

In the current environment, strongly characterized by intangible experiences and the instant availability of all knowledge, rethinking the concept of a direct experience, shared at the same time by the mind and the body, is a challenge that particularly inspires us.

NEO awards: Premio Compasso d’Oro 2020, German Design Award 2020, IDA International Design Award 2015, Silver Prize, Red Dot, Grand Prix Award, 2013, Premio Compasso d’Oro 2011
