During Milan Design week, Paul Cocksedge presented Excavation: Evicted an installation produced in collaboration with Beatrice Trussardi and Friedman Benda gallery in New York and displayed at Fondazione Luigi Rovati in Milan during the Salone del Mobile.
Japanese designer Nendo, has set up his show at one of Brera’s most magical spaces, the Chiostri di San Simpliciano, staging a comic story starring chairs.
With this exhibition, Nendo abstracts archetypes of manga comics. the chairs are happy, distressed, embarrassed, surprised; they leap and bound, zoom past, or slowly slink away. each chair has its own personality, allowing it to stand on its own or, when placed next to the others, to become part of a collective narrative.
