Talponia (or Molehill in Italian) was designed in 1968 by Roberto Gabetti and Aimaro Oreglia d’Isola for Olivetti’s guests. IDII students lived in single or double 50 square meter apartments with most of the original furniture. I’m not sure that amazing tiger carpet was ever there. There was internet in the building so a combination of iChat along with visual cues (lights on or off) became a way for students to live communally and communicate their availability and mood. Much group work and socialising was done in Talponia as much as Casa Blu.
