MILANO DESIGN WEEK 2018 // what we loved, where we’ve been!
For the first time this year we took a part of the Milano Design week or Il Salone del Mobile if said in italian way. We heard about it as the most crazy period in the city, filled with people, art and design, events at every corner, fully booked hotels and restaurants and traffic as never we seen before. Nothing to compare to the fashion week which looks like chilling under the sun in Cabo.
Yes, it was like that!But it was amazing!
Our team has the pleasure to be invited to the best events of Salone del Mobile, where fashion houses collaborated with artist and designers to create something unique.
Etro home interiors are just incredible, able to transport you in a magical world made of exotic vibes, sophisticated and luxury fabrics and spicy scents.
The event was organized at the Etro home boutique in the heart of Brera where incredible design pieces as the Babel chair, silk pajamas ( I’m obsessed with them!) and all the Etro home pieces were showed.
Swarovski created an installation in the heart of Milano to host an exposition of their creations in collaboration with various artists. At Swarovski palazzo was realized also a pop up store with the selection of Swarowski jewelry pieces and eyewear and a lovely cafe’ with austrian pastries.
Between the artists who collaborated with Swarovski there are names as Patricia Urquiola, Studio Nendo, Peter Pilotto, John Pawson and Tord Boontje who created an incredible lightning piece.
SMEG + DOLCE&GABBANA
For years already the italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana works with Smeg to create unique hand painted pieces with the classic vintage Smeg aesthetic.
WOOLRICH & CARLO MOLLINO
A beautiful installation was created at the Woolrich boutique with Carlo Mollino pieces. The place was filled with flowers and plants to create a jungle kinda vibe and a great deejay set in the backyard.
