Paris-Milano: carte blanche for design without limits! A collection designed remotely between two countries, France and Italy. Two...
In Milan, the Fuorisalone – the Off of the Salone del Mobile – is an institution. A festival of innovation and celebration, where the Lombardy capital reveals its secrets. The perfect opportunity to present the newest items in our collection, the ultra-contemporary Nonna velvet sofa with its perfect proportions, as well as our gorgeous Spectre and Mezza Luna sconces. Inspired by Italian luminaires of the 1940s, their brushed brass elegance has added a refined finishing touch to the rough walls of our permanent home. An aesthetic manifesto in the form of the first presentation, between 17 and 22 April, of our range of furniture and accessories to the international public. Nestled in the heart of the historic district of Brera, Via Palermo 1, in a setting designed by Victor Cadene, we had our finger right on the pulse of this extraordinary event. As ambassadors of the Brera Design District first of all, alongside designer Cristina Celestino, but also – and above all – as the winner of the Lezioni di Design prize. A real honour for our young brand, which thus saw its name placed alongside real stars in the field (from Martino Gamper to Ambra Medda) and which witnessed, for a week, a procession of visitors each more intrigued than the last. Take a look back in pictures at the home that we unveiled “à l’Italienne” by sharing glasses of Spritz and Prosecco with our passing friends, happy to kick off the crazy rollercoaster that was about to begin. The unique opportunity for us to present you the novelties of our collection: the sofa Nonna, terribly contemporary with its ideal proportions. But also our wall lights, Spectre and Mezza Luna. Inspired by the Italian lighting of the 40s, their elegance in brass is to be found very soon on our eshop.
