In sociology, the ‘bedroom culture’ has been defined as the place where youth develop their identity. As children grow up, the meaning of private spaces evolves towards street-based subcultures or virtual realms. Driven by curiosity Giorgio Gasco and Gianmaria Della Ratta started analysing those rooms and created Stucco wall decorations. Experience virtual intimacy through the eyes of a designer!
