THE BEST OF MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2017

The time to reflect on the fantastic wonders, brilliant innovations and breathtaking dreams-come-to-life that made up the lifeblood of Milan Design Week 2017 (MDW17) has come! And, as has always been the case, the Salone Internazionale del Mobile was so chock-full of a record-breaking number of experiences that we’re still awestruck at the sheer scope of it all. This year, we were also lucky enough to attend MiART on its last day, April 2nd, two days before the official launch of MDW17, an art fair we highly recommend that our readers jot down in their calendars for next year!

All the usual districts of the creative city of Milan took part in the celebrations – from Tortona and Lambrate, to Brera and the 5VIE/Sant’Ambrogio district, not to mention the sprawling RHO Fiera with its endless halls hosting the Salone. So for a mental retrospective of the week, join us and get a taste of what it was all about:

Two award winning installations were not to be missed. The incredible light installation “S. F. Senses of the Future” by Tokujin Yoshioka x LG showcased at Superstudio Piu in the Tortona district – winner of Milano Design Award 2017 – and the installation, “May I Have Your Attention, Please?” designed by Maarten Baas in collaboration with Lensvelt, an installation presented in one of the vaults adjacent to Milan’s Central Station’s Magazzini Raccordati – winner of the Milano Design Award 2017 for Best Concept.

The New Spring installation by COS in partnership with Studio Swine at the former Cinema Arti theatre in central Milan was also the talk of the city during the Design Week. Featuring a super collaboration between Japanese architect, Azusa Murakami, and British artist, Alexander Groves, the installation was centred around a focal sculpture that reached six meters in height and was constructed entirely out of recycled aluminium! Incredibly, the interactive sculpture emitted mist-filled blossoms that burst on contact with skin… but would survive when touched by textured fabrics. We were lucky enough to get to the venue on the first day of its official opening and were surprised to find no queues! But thanks to the power of instagram, it only took people 24 hours to discover it and to form the longest queues in the city to check it out!

New Spring installation by COS in partnership with Studio Swine, an artistic collaboration between Japanese architect Azusa Murakami and British artist Alexander Groves, at the former theatre, Cinema Arti, in central Milan.
The installation, centred around a focal sculpture reaching six metres in height and constructed nearly entirely from recycled aluminium. The sculpture emitted mist-filled blossoms that burst on contact with skin but that survive when met with textured fabrics, allowing visitors the chance to interact with the installation.
