Milano - #MDW2017 – Missoni – Wallpaper – Jannelli and Volpi
"Take It Easy": Missoni's installation for the annual Salone del Mobile in Milan is an exploration of the power of wallpaper to take you away to another world. Here's a taste of the installation designed by Missoni’s creative director Angela Missoni in preparation for the launch of Missoni’s first foray into wallpaper, in partnership with Jannelli and Volpi: the video was made in collaboration with Otolab.

"The collaboration with Jannelli and Volpi, masters of the art of wallpaper, is the new precious component of the MissoniHome Collection. It was a pleasure to find out in creating this new Collection the reciprocal affinities: the deep roots of family traditions, professionalism and passion for the Our crafts "

Milano - #MDW2017 – Minimal Cucine - Bisazza

The new Minimal Cucine flagship store opened in a gallery like loft space in the Lambrate Ventura area, showcasing their minimal kitchens to their greatest advantage.

“Developing the concept of "Homeric cleansing" by Adolf Loos, the kitchen collections I have developed have been designed with a focus on extreme consistency, with the concept to subtract the superfluous. I have therefore deliberately created monoliths where matter fuses with the environment, fossil wood with cement, steel with natural stone.”
Fabio Zanette

Minimal Cucine

Milano #MDW2017 – Bisazza
In the Bisazza flagship store Rossella Bisazza and Humberto Campana presented the new Cementile collection designed with his brother Fernando for Bisazza.


Bisazza – Cementiles - Fernando and Humberto Campana
“For this project we were inspired by the Brazilian geode stone. We wanted to create a dialogue between the layers found in the interior of the rock and the swirls of our sushi series to compose a colorful and versatile collection that can be applied in vast array of environments.  The richness of Brazil and the immense fortune of crystals petrified in an icon image which became a tile.”
Fernando and Humberto Campana


Bisazza – Mosaico – Greg Natale
"People might associate my aesthetic with symmetry and bold geometrics, but I have always believed that when working with pattern, organic and geometrics need to sit side-by-side to have optimal effect, so I am thrilled to be presenting this range of organic designs with Bisazza.  In this collection I wanted to explore how motifs that are so wild, uneven and random could be reinterpreted, attractively, within a medium, as linear and unvarying as sheeted mosaic square tiles."
Australian designer Greg Natale

Whilst, against the backdrop of 50’s Italian glamour, Tom told stories and showed his products under the title of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, in the enormous 840-seat cinema theater;  the venue for a combination of culture, entertainment and commerce events - the very essence of Milan Design Week.
