#20 - Milan Design Week

In Time: On the Streets of Milan

An addition to our “In Time” pieces, we covered the FuoriSalone to check out the three design districts starting from Lambrate to Brera and finally ending at the bustling Tortona area.

We began the early morning rush, visiting the collaborative space Money, Meat & Plastic Surgery. It featured the creations of Bora Hong, Rolf Bruggink and Isaac Monté who unveiled a unique collection of hearts encased in glass containers called The Art of Deception; a very interesting glimpse on the creative minds of these three designers, aiming to instill their respective social causes in their art.

We hopped into the next exhibition in Lambrate and caught up with the owner of Ateliers Zelij, Samir Mazer. Sculptural pieces of gold and colored ceramic tiles welcomed us as we spoke with Mazer on their ceramic pieces, exclusively created for Milan Design Week.

Designer Giacomo Garziano of GG Loop was also in the midst of the buzz in Lambrate. He talked to us about molecules and bacteria and how they all relate to the design of his modular collection of couches and table.

Last stop: Brera District where we met designer Gordon Guillaumier and caught sight of his new collection for Ceramiche Piemme. Attending the opening at 6 p.m. was a treat as we saw an actual carpenter’s workshop in the space, featuring the new ceramic collection of Guillaumier. We chatted with the designer over a first round of aperitivo served during the opening.
