During this year’s Salone del Mobile, a selection of recent creations that reflect the “GATHERING” trend in design were exhibited by Edelkoort Exhibitions at Ventura Lambrate. Fashion was also displayed with intriguing pleated and layered pieces by 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE, Barbara i Gongini, Jule Wabel and Min Nan Hui.

Set against Daniel Costa’s black and white photographs of endearing vintage craft inspirations, “GATHERING” illustrated how contemporary design is part of a centuries-old domestic craft continuum. “GATHERING: From Domestic Craft to Contemporary Process” was originally commissioned by Design Museum Holon, the acclaimed institution celebrating its 5th anniversary in 2015.
