The "Strangely Familiar" project rethinks existing devices and harnesses their functionality to make them more understandable, meaningful and delightful. The vehicle for investigation was everyday digital devices found in the domestic environment. This work was exhibited for the first time on the 22nd of January 2005 as a special event at AB+, Via Della Basilica 13, Torino (Italy). A second iteration of the project has been presented under the name "Strangely Familiar Future. Unusual objects for every day working life". The show took place in the evocative atmosphere of the Old Post Office, located inside the Milan Central Station, during the Milan Furniture Fair 2005 (Salone del Mobile), in collaboration with Tecno.
