Many companies have taken […]

Les Arcanistes by Studio Pepe | Milan design week 2019

Studiopepe’s Manifesto Project for Milan Design Week 2019 took place in a beautiful former gold manufacture dating back to the 1900s.

Objects were placed on different shaped ‘islands’ connected by coal chunks representing the Belgian […]
