Tom Dixon
TWENTY exhibition

Tom Dixon returns to Milan to mark its 20th anniversary in the form of an extraordinary exhibition, coinciding with Salone del Mobile. TWENTY presents modified, upgraded and rethought innovations that provide a reflective yet future-thinking overview of the most popular design pieces Tom Dixon has developed since the brand’s inception two decades ago. New innovations are showcased in two locations. Palazzo Serbelloni, is a neoclassical palace, home to Sotheby’s galleries and offices, and to the TWENTY exhibition. The Manzoni, the brand’s hub in Milan, will showcase its existing best-sellers and new range items.

Hermès
La Pelota

The installation is set within the expansive industrial building La Pelota, which is located in Milan’s Brera neighbourhood. The artistic direction by Charlotte Macaux-Perelman and Alexis Fabry facinates vistors with its simplicity and power at one: this time everything is designed under the banner of lightness, like a challenge to gravity, which is expressed through the presentation of home objects presented inside four structures. Each object is an expression of savoir-faire and the result of extreme precision. Six creations give shape to this manifesto to lightness: they are all made of cashmere, one of the maison’s favorite materials, an infinitely delicate natural fiber that combines strength and brilliant colors. The workmanship is made with strips of cashmere that form the pattern; hand-woven and hand-dyed squares create patchworks of shimmering colors; geometric shapes assembled with relinking evoke stained glass mosaics; a large bedspread brings colour, patchwork and the quilting tradition into dialogue.

CIRCLE by Alessandra Facchinetti
10 Corso Como — Corso Como, 10, Milano

On the occasion of Milan Design Week and consistent to its privileged relationships with the world of design, 10 Corso Como presents for the first time Circle, the new porcelain tableware designed by Alessandra Facchinetti.

“I’m overjoyed that Circle’s physical debut will take place at 10 Corso Como”, says Facchinetti. “Their capacity to combine products and emotions with extreme elegance as well as their talent scouting soul makes it the ideal stage for Circle, where design and craft join forces for an unprecedented sensory experience. Interpreting in a contemporary way a traditional and very Italian material such as porcelain together with Editions Milano and presenting it in the true temple of fashion, art and design, feels like a natural progression of our project”.

Slamp
Slamp Milano Duomo– Via Larga 2, Milan

Slamp has officially landed in Milan, opening the doors of their Via Larga No. 2 flagship store on June 5th during the 60th edition of the Salone del Mobile. Slamp’s visions and values are infused into the brand-exclusive store, revealing design as the precise and extreme care of exterior details that nurture an interior dialogue between spaces and beings, both reflected by an illumination that diff uses isolation from the outside world. More than a physical place, it’s a multi-sensory experience that touches every emotion. It’s not a stop along a particular journey, but an entity that pervades time and precise relationships. A heartbeat, a vibration, that touches the soul, each that are fully defined by LIGHT.
