Missoni has decked out Milan’s Malpensa international airport in vibrantly colored knits: through October, the end of Expo 2015, two 49.2-foot columns swathed in stripey textiles will connect the arrivals and departures areas at terminal one.

Called “Tra le Righe #2,” which translates to “Between the Lines #2,” the installation is a spin on the “Missoni, L’Arte, Il Colore” (Missoni, Art, Color) exhibition currently underway at the MA*GA art museum in the Varese province of Lombardy, where Missoni founders Ottavio and Rosita Missoni set up shop decades ago. At the base of the columns, travelers will find information both on that exhibit and on the Missoni fashion company.

Luca Missoni and Angelo Jelmini developed the Malpensa project.
