Our visit to China was one day trip after another—Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Shanghai—so we’re looking forward to a solid week in Milan—and the same hotel—via Istanbul!
Until tomorrow, check out highlights from the Milan Salone 2011.
Coming to Milan for the Salone, is not just about the Salone. Time spent outside the fair—walking the streets of Zona Tortona, Brera and Lambrate—is equally important.
Each area is an extension of the fair with large and small scale exhibits in old factories, city apartments, on the streets… this is what fulfills the declaration that ‘the city is the Salone’.
Yesterday we walked a few miles in Zona Tortona, today we will see Brera and Lambrate. We know we’ll see many new designs, colors, artwork…but it’s the audience participation projects that draw in the visitor, making us part of the Salone as well. Bravo and mille grazie Milan!
Every year the Milan Salone celebrates what’s new in modern—and this year we congratulate and celebrate its 50th anniversary.
At the same time, Italy is celebrating its 150th anniversary of Unity so attending the opera last night—a supremely Italian experience—meant more than ever.
We live and breath modern—as in casual, approachable, unexpected—with simple, clean lines.
With its deep red velvet curtains and gilded fixtures, Teatro alla Scala is the complete antithesis of what we do. Yet being open to diversity is what creates texture and depth in our lives and homes… there’s room for everyone and everything.
