MILAN THE SALONE
Chiara’s best of ! #milan2015
Year after year the Milano Design Week keeps growing, invading more and more areas of the city. I crossed Milano far and wide , trying not to miss the most important exhibition and this is my very best of fuorisalone in 5 points.
Exer-cise in seat-ing – An empty garage in the heart of the city was the perfect location for this kind of “primitive” exhibition of the British designer Max Lamb. An experimental variation on the same theme, the chair, focusing on the importance of the materials and on their transformation makes his work processual, as was “ Arte Povera”
Mind Craft – A new selection of the best Danish craft, the exhibition featured the works of nineteen Denmark’s leading designers and craftpeople. As the theme was “in Between” the curators, GamFratesi, transformed the amazing Chistro di San Sempliciano in Brera, in a magic floating place using a mirror floor. A perfect match between mind and craft, design and location.
Cos x Snarkitecture – Cos has collaborates with the Brooklyn-based studio Snarkitecture to create an installation ending with a new concept store A peaceful place to really have a moment of relax during this hard week . A white cavern made of pure ribbons was what I call a great results with a small but good idea.
Dimore Studio Gallery – The apartment of my dreams. A place that you would’t leave anymore. Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran celebrated the 10th year of presence at the Milano design week with the exhibition PALMADOR 2015, six exclusive pieces plus a new collection of fabrics. Poetic.
Nendo – Works 2014-2015 – One of the most famous names in design, Nendo presented at the Museo della Permanente in Milan a minimal and ethereal set-up (in classic Nendo style) that showed many projects developed in the last year. Breathtaking: 12 bottles that represent many types of rain .. which of course in Japanese each one have a specific and unique name!
