Salone del mobile and Fuorisalone 2019

Best of Milan Design Week 2019

Five installations and exhibitions that represent the cream of the of from this year's Fuorisalone.

There are countless high-quality quality works that have defined this Salone del Mobile, on the one hand marked by design responsibility in line with the themes of the XXII Milan Trienniale, Broken Nature, and on the other by an impeccable delivery of the creative process: from powerful concepts to accurate achievements that meet the needs of clients and engagement with the final user through fine aesthetics.

In the next few weeks, Domus Salone Special will continue to talk about the designs and protagonists met during the most important design week in the globe.

This list draws on our daily editors picks articles, which represent the best events we've attended over the past five days:

The Echo Pavilion by Pezo von Ellrichshausen

The sculptural installation by Pezo Von Ellrichshausen at Palazzo Litta, in Corso Magenta 24. Located in the courtyard, the work is entirely covered with reflective material that transforms it into an invisible body between the walls of the Baroque palace. The exhibition "The Litta Variations" hosts, as every year, the work of over 60 international designers.

Tomás Saraceno for Bulgari

Tomás Sarceno’s exhibition at Milan’s Planetarium accompanies visitors under Portaluppi’s dome, in an installation where the macro-scale of the cosmos is related to real spider webs. With "Weaving the Cosmos" and "B.zero1, XX Annyversary", Bulgari celebrates the 20th anniversary of its design icon, the B.Zero 1 ring.

Different Bodies by KADK

The Royal Danish Academy made a case for diversity at its showing in the Isola Design District, in via Pastrengo 7. Entitled ‘Different Bodies’ master students of design and architecture explored how we can build inclusivity into the hardware of society, allowing everyone to participate on equal terms. From the need for human touch to the ubiquity of body-shaming, projects drove home the message that there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all design.

COS x Mamou Mani

Scenic and immersive, the installation "Conifera" by the French architect Arthur Mamou-Mani for COS combines renewable materials and 3D printing, with a interlocking structure of over 700 modular bricks. The shape is inspired by the place that houses it, the sixteenth-century Palazzo Isimbardi in Corso Monforte 35.

Nilufar Depot

In viale Vincenzo Lancetti 34, Nina Yashar offers three exhibitions in her generous Nilufar Depot: “FAR” – an immersive setting made of huge inflatable ‘parasites’ curated by Studio Vedèt, exhibition design by Space Caviar –, “New sculptural presence”, curated by Libby Sellers and set up by Patricia Urquiola, and a series of collectible design pieces within “Nilufar and the Great Italian Masters”.
