Milan has as many readings as people visit it. You only need to pay attention as you wonder to have a clue about the next trend, even without going to Fuori Salone or the Fair itself.
Milan strengthens the ethereal message, that started this year Maison Objet, (jannuary 2017) with the silence as trend . COS installation by Swine Studio was design to be a experience. A sculptural tree made of aluminium where air, water, vapour bubble flourish; they only explode when they touch human skin. Azusa Murakami (architect) and Alexander Groves (artist) is a duet known for their sensibility and for their work with non conventional materials as human hair or plastic retrieved from the ocean.
Formafantasma studio presented their work for Flos bare of ornaments. The installation explains the creation process, their research and focus on design with light, more than a product. Products, that behind their timelessness appearance, they try to leave the smaller waste as possible.
The borders between fashion and design seem to disappear at Nendo and Jil Sanders’s collaboration, if they ever existed. A forest made of polystyrene sculptures of 5mm, where we find Oki Sato creations.
