On the occasion of the Pitti Uomo 95 event that takes place right now in Florence, the well-known footwear company Moon Boot chooses a K-Igloo geodesic dome by Kopron.

The dome, present during the exhibition period, immerses visitors in the world of THE PITTI BOX, a tribute to the exhibition areas of Pitti. “Big Boxes” that act as containers of ideas and novelties, where to surprise and innovate.

The Pitti Uomo path creates, in fact, involvement for buyers and professionals in a series of experiences through the different boxes.

One of these for the 50th anniversary of Moon Boot with an exhibition at the ‘Stazione Leopolda’. The famous brand’s snow boots under an Igloo box. The correlation between heat and safety. Concepts that marry perfectly!
