Denmark goes Milan Design week 2016 | MENU

I only spent one afternoon at the actual Salone this year that with over 20 halls filled with design is impossible to do in one day and to be honest not my favourite place to be during Milan design week when over 1500 installations and exhibitions in town are fighting over my agenda already. Somehow […]

Roest by Vanjoost | Karven

Simplicity in its most basic form is what defines Karven’s Roest (Dutch for rust) collection by VanJoost. Rust is an elementary but beautiful reaction between iron, oxygen, water and time. Simplicity, or the lack of complexity, is highlighted in this series inspired by rough materials around VanJoost’s studio in the Netherlands.   I loved the raw and […]

1+1 | Stefano Gaggero for Pianca design

It has been a while since I wrote about the work of my friend Stefano Gaggero and I must admit that whenever we meet in Milan or Paris, we always seem to be in Paris at the same time, I prefer to have a stroll through town with him, rather than visiting the huge Salone […]

Boffi Flagshipstore | Fuori Salone 2014

While visiting beautiful shops and showrooms I often get distracted by the design of the store itself, especially when it has a bit of raw edges or some old elements I can easily wander around for a while… Visiting the Boffi flagship store in via Solferino this year, definitely was another highlight of the fuori salone.  Located […]

From courtyard to courtyard | Fuorisalone 2014

After visiting the ever fabulous Corso Como we walked further into Brera and discovered a little sign directing us into some hidden alley’s. These unexpected places is what I love most when walking through Milan during the Fuori Salone. Here we were invited to walk the ‘Di cortile in cortile’ Meaning from courtyard to courtyard. A […]

10 Corso Como | Rooftop terrace in the sun

Corso Como is one of those must see places while being in Milan. Before entering the actual store or restaurant, there is a beautiful courtyard filled with plants. If you haven’t been there, have a look at my other post to see what I mean 10 Corso Como | calling all hipsters The last time […]

Ingo Maurer | Fuori Salone 2014

With only one showroom in Europe, in the outskirts of Munich, where Ingo Maurer and his team work on different lightning products and installations my friend insisted on going to see his work during our stay in Milan. The great thing is that we really go along on these trips and both have our little escapes to […]

Constancy & Change | Triennale | Salone del mobile 2014

Just amazing to enter this hall with Lee Bong-ju’s “Bangjja Meditation Bowl Bells”. Hand-beaten brassware, or bangjja, are made with a tin and copper alloy. The sound was just really beautiful |they are often called singing bowls| and together with the Patchwork Wrappers hanging from the ceiling my favourite exhibition at the Triennale! Hansan Ramie […]
