While everybody else was checking up the multiple exhibition venues around the Salone del Mobile, I jumped over to Maison Martin Margiela Milano to discover French artist Cédric Bernadotte’s installation of “Residual Spaces”, showcasing furniture and objects, wrapped in industrial cellophane. Really WOOOW!
great Installation from Burdi @ Salone del Mobile Milan 2013
Just in time with the Salone del Mobile, Chanel make a stopover with the little black jacket exhibition in Milan. Karl Lagerfeld’s (with Carine Roitfeld) amazing photographs of the reinterpretation of Chanel’s iconic jacket in an impressive historical building to accompany with spotted light and electronic music. The book, available at most of the book stores, is a must have.
Vitra came with a related structure like last year, but the installations are still incredible and shows us, that they are one of the leaders in furniture and interior design. Fron the outside they bring illuminedwhite plastic boxes into a luxury context. Inside they created various colour worlds into small boxes with a distinguished view for details. Thanks for it…
It it for sure not only us, knowing industrial designer Tom Dixon for his conceptual aesthetics, be it in terms of lighing design or furniture. Right now, during the Salone del Mobile in Milan, he is giving a preview on his latest design project, this time more related to apparel than to furniture. Together with Adidas, Dixon is presenting his visions for stylish clothes, combining the dimensions of functionality and fashionability.
What I can say is I totally loved his parka turning easily into a sleeping bag, the totally cozy hoodies that can be zipped into small space-saving bags (so great for non-stop travelling people) and a rather stunning five-in-one overall piece, being a coat, jacket, pant, skirt and shorts in one. Not easy to imagine, right?!
It is not only apparel Dixon put his creative perspective into – in his colab with Adidas, one could find milti-functional accessories such as backpacks, cases or even really stunning shoes.
If you are in town, you should definitely check out the installation at MOST and check out some of the pieces I found really cool.
big thanXX to Milan style icon Stefano Carloni for his cool pics.
