A creative and engaging way to encourage ordinary people to approach the world of beauty and art. For 40 years, all over the world POSCA marker accompanies creativity in all respects. On the occasion of Fuorisalone in Milan 2022, Posca will be present in via Ciovasso 6 (Milan), within Brera Design Week.
Uni Posca, born in 1983 from a collaboration between Osama and Uni Mitsubishi Pencil, is the temperament marker par excellence, an authentic reference in the world of art and creative hobbies.
To date, Osama boasts the distribution in Italy of well over 70,000,000 pieces.
To celebrate the iconicity of the cursor, Posca will stage a real innovative exhibition created by designer Giulio Iacchetti who will present Posca wave, modular system for storing the legendary POSCA colored markers in an upright position. The system made entirely of recycled plastic creates a potentially infinite chain, where each joint carries a marker.
This “modular wave” can be attached to the wall, providing free and creative ways to place the markers even in the work area.
Visitors passing through the site will be able to actively contribute to the decoration of the site walls and will be able to observe 6 artists, illustrators and designers who will pay tribute to Posca with a live performance.
