A Magical Week in Milan

A Magical Week in Milan
A vignette from Caffè Populaire, a collaboration between some of my favorite designers: New York based Superflower and Montreal's Lambert et Fils

Finally, after three long years of stops and starts, I made it back to Milan for Salone. The city was alive, the weather was (almost) perfect and everyone was there. Milan Design Week was in full force with installations, parties and launches. Below are a few favorites.

My visit to Alcova, the fair curated by Joseph Grima and Valentina Ciuffi, included a stop at Caffè Populaire, the outdoor aperitivo garden connected to the installation by Lambert & Fils and Superflower, designed in collaboration with Milan's DWA Design Studio.

Triennale Milano hosted a trio of great exhibitions at  including Mathieu Lehanneur's show addressing global issues curated by the brilliant Maria Cristina Didero, an expansive show of Memphis works and the 50th anniversary of Gufram's Cactus.

In Brera I stopped by the new HQ of Loro Piana inside of a 19th century palazzo re-envisioned by architect Vincent Van Duysen and finished the night with a towering negroni on the sidewalk outside Bar Basso, a Milanese must-see.

Now, back to work!! But we have some big plans coming so check back for more news through the summer! ~~ Steven
