“In Milan this year, we want to inspire architects and designers through a radical interpretation of how food and surfaces can interact in different ways, delivering a food experience that challenges all the senses in an exercise of materiality, luminosity and texture”
We don’t depend on collaborations but they’re usually a strategic development to try to work out whether there’s a different way of doing things — it might be dipping our toe into a new category or working with a new manufacturer.
Ollo is a light task chair designed to support improvisation and spontaneity across a variety of environments and work styles.
With its modern form and intuitive movement, Ollo adapts to the task at hand, whether you’re just touching down or staying a while.
Intentionally simple and free of complicated mechanisms, the open form welcomes the user without dictating the chair’s function.
With Raw & Rainbow Altreforme confirmed its commitment to experimentation, demonstrating once again the versatility of aluminium which, thanks to a unique manufacturing know-how and to the constant contamination with an original vision, can radically transform itself into constantly new shapes
It is too unbelievable to recount, and too painful to recall, the thousand-and-one insanities, hassles, and surprises that can befall the visitor just getting from the subway to the fair to an internet café and on to a dinner function.
Maybe one day they’ll work out the kinks around here and create a design fair that actually feels like somebody designed it. !!!
On the other hand, what would be the fun in that ?
At the baroque Lombard 18th century Palazzo Litta, project curators Andrea Branzi and Michele De Lucchi presented 16 projects of “social environment”, based on the concept of misery, a subject always expressed in arts, cinema and literature but basically alien to the Salone design culture.
“Aesthetics of Misery” was born as a result of a postgraduate experimental workshop at the Politecnico di Milano, overseen by Francesca Balena Arista and Marco De Santi, during which students were asked to take on the theme of misery, almost always excluded from aesthetics design.
