I need a change of scenes since things haven’t really gone my way lately, and what better than to jump on a plain to the city where I studied for 4 years and where the hole world gets together this week to celebrate design? Since I’ve lived in Milan I’ve really seen how the whole city comes to life during Salone del mobile, and I can’t wait to feel the happy and friendly atmosphere walking around in design-paradise. So here is a little peek on my “have to see”-list.
Redlightdesigneven is an exhibition with an erotic atmosphere, with the goal to recreate the erotic mood of Amsterdam red light district. Among the many designers they have invited to design erotic objects are Richard Hutton with a series of glass dildo´s on champagne glass stem, to celebrate special moments. (see the picture over)
My friend So Takahasi is exhibiting his fantastic origami chairs at deisgnersblock, and I’ll be at the opening party ! Designesblock always has a lot of interesting objects to show, and I must say I am exited to try this cactus chair from Valentina Gonzalez Wohlers.
And of course I have to visit my old school Naba. They are turning campus into a big playground with workshops, and exhibitions. They are also exhibiting at Triennale Design Museum, with the team: Compito in classe: …perche’ ti dovrei ascoltare professore? (Why do we have to listen to the teacher? ) Don’t really know what this is, but I promise to go, take pictures and let you know!
Zona Tortona is as usual my favourite spot in Milan. On every corner there is a new designer waiting to show you his or hers design. After trying to schedule where to go at what time last year, I am trying out the opposite tactic this year; just simply walking around seeing what I stumble across.
And off course I have to pay a visit to Fiera at Rho and Salone Satellite,every year the big hall fills with undiscovered talents of young creative.
Well that’s what I’ve planed so far. Know its not much but I have been overwhelmed by all the design, exhibitions, workshops, apretivos and happy people before, and I am ready to be it again, so stay tuned for updates!
