Marcello Jacopo Biffi teamed with Marsèll to produce the exhibition A is A is Ato present a selection of his alphabet designs (Alphabet 1–8) at Marsèll Paradise in Milan. From outer Space (Anna Paola Buonanno and Piergiorgio Italiano with Anna Sedino) designed a series of displays using semi-finished wood panels to host the letters printed on A4 paper sheets in various sizes by Marcello Jacopo Biffi. They built the displays without cutting or altering the panels, then stapled the paper sheets directly onto them (for a total of 25 screws, 232 A4 and 464 staples). A double grid system—a combination of square units and the ISO 216 standard—guided the positioning of the letters in the page. All the single page artworks have been generated by simply scaling and cropping one bigger artboard.
