We have been working pretty hard to get these videos published between today and tomorrow, and give you a glimpse shortly after the Salone has closed its doors until next year. But here they are, and I couldn’t be happier with the result!
My highlights of this years editions have been at the Off-Salone and not directly on the fairground but I have to say, I spent far more time at other districts than at the official fair itself. And it proved to be right again since the really cool stuff, amazing talents to watch and fantastic installations are located all around the city.
There is no particular trend I want to talk about in these videos (that’s a different post) but give you a feeling about the Milan Design Week vibe, and what you might expect to find in case you decide to go next year.
Don’t forget to enlarge the screen for maximum inspiration!
Let’s start with Italian’s fashion (and lifestyle) brand Marni and their giant fruit market installation Mercado de Paloquemao referring to Bogotá’s market. It’s been full of light, colors, the smell of exotic fruits, and altogether really good vibes since the reason behind the designed pieces is nothing else than supporting and involving a group of women in Colombia to become independent. But see yourself:
The next stop was at the Dimore Studio which I did not expect to find open. They are my favorite Italian designer duo but I didn’t even thought about the possibility to find their amazing apartment open to the public. But Instagram helped out:) I featured them several times on the blog already, and being able to step into their world was just…well…unbelievable. The showroom is crazy, impossible to define their style and unpredictable designs. All I can say is: superb!
The next two videos are coming tomorrow and they are pretty special, both are shot in a really stunning historical environments.
Have a great day! G, x
Went to Milan myself and agree that the exhibits around the city districts were more
inspiring than the main show.
Only managed to get one day around Milan so we could not see everything.
Great to see your video of areas we may not have seen.
Tortona region very inspiring with Moooi carpets teaming up with photographer Rahi Rezvani one of my favourite exhibits.
I look forward to seeing the rest of your Milan story.
I skipped Tortona this year to be honest, didn’t find the time since I discovered the ‘new to me’ district San Gregorio. Just not possible to cover all but will do Tortona next year again for sure! Thks for sharing, saw the Moooi images on the web, it looked amazing!
You guys have worked on some exceptionally beautiful videos. Thank you for taking me to Milan!
I really love to see how Marni worked their products and it’s only through your video where you can see how close the result is from the original inspiration. I must admit, their flower market last year was my all time favorite but this fruit market is pretty high on my ranking, too :-)
Thank you so much!
I bow down. Low!
I didn’t see the one last year and I bet it was beautiful! Did you go to Milan? I must have missed that! xx
You both did a wonderful job! Great moving pictures! I really like the presentation of fruits.
Thanks, sweet lady, wonderful to see you over here!! xo
