With all the excitement for Knoll happening at both their significant return to the Salone Fairgrounds, combined with the presence of Rem Koolhaas to launch the “Knoll Tools for Life” collection at the Prada Space – it was little wonder that this year, Knoll’s permanent Mlan showroom at Piazza Bertarelli received virtually no press coverage.
“Dominant, important, determinant, no frills, no stains, no tyre kickers, a time of action, a time for realism, pragmatic stands, open markets, different languages, evolved styles, decisive lines, attentive brands, poetry here and there, history everywhere, attention to the customer, attention to detail, lots of people, important signal, classic, yet shimmering, shifting “. ………. Alpha Salone – by Paolo Bocchi
Knoll has once again collaborated with architect Rem Koolhaas and OMA, and “Inside Outside” founder Petra Blaisse, to design its showroom display at the Piazza Bertarelli.
This year in Milan. Knoll celebrates the centennial of the birth of Harry Bertoia ( 1915 – 1978 ) with a true in-depth exploration of this eclectic designer—through all his art forms, from sculptures to jewellery and from monoprints to the master’s celebrated Knoll Bertoia furniture collection
George Freedman is an American-born interior designer who has made great contributions to Australian interior design culture over the past 40+ years.
He is a lover of vivid, varied and inventive colours. However whilst he is often stereotyped as a gifted colorist, with skill in the formulation of distinctive palettes, he also demonstrates a selective ability to manipulate essential form.
Chiesa San Paolo Converso, is a 16th-century former Baroque church ( deconsecrated after World War II ) and convent in Piazza Sant’Eufemia on Corso Italia, not far from Milan’s celebrated Duomo
The recently opened CLS factory space inside the Converso church, hosted the installation “It’s All About Meal” by Massimiliano Locatelli which explored the concept of a new conviviality in domestic spaces
No one had dared to build anything inside the church—until Locatelli secured the lease – and by December 2014 had created a metal cocoon for his architectural studio without ever touching a single church wall.
