DE­SIGN Cre­ativ­ity reigns supreme by Ste­fa­nia Vida

The Eclisse Rosso ta­ble lamp is a sig­na­ture piece of the Artemide brand. De­signed in 1967 by Vico Mag­istretti, even today it con­tin­ues to be an ab­so­lute must-have for de­sign afi­ciona­dos.

From 8 to 13 April, Mi­lan be­comes the world cap­i­tal of de­sign with the “Salone In­ter­nazionale del Mo­bile”, where the world's greats in home dé­cor and de­sign gather to pre­miere their lat­est col­lec­tions. Italy's most vi­brant city also ex­plodes with a slew of off-site events known as the “Fuorisa­lone”. While wait­ing to dis­cover the lat­est trends, here are a se­lec­tion of the most ex­clu­sive de­sign ad­dresses in the city, for the more cu­ri­ous, de­sign afi­ciona­dos or sim­ply those in search of in­spi­ra­tion!


In the heart of Mi­lan, amidst the glitzy win­dow dis­plays of the Quadri­latero's high-end brands, you will be sur­prised by the in­no­va­tive, so­phis­ti­cated spa­ces ded­i­cated to renowned de­sign gu­rus, such as the ex­clu­sive glass cre­ations by a cult des­ti­na­tion in via Mon­te­napoleone. In the nearby via Man­zoni don't miss a visit to the flag­ship store of Founded way back in 1921, it is now one of Italy's most revered de­sign com­pa­nies, known for its abil­ity to trans­form ev­ery­day ob­jects into at­ten­tion-grab­bing works of art, dis­played in count­less mu­se­ums through­out the world. Al­ways in via Man­zoni you can find all the so­phis­ti­ca­tion that dis­tin­guishes the col­lec­tions of the brand: the sec­tion ded­i­cated to fur­nish­ings (Ar­mani/Casa) is a delight for the eyes fea­tur­ing



De­signed by Fabio Novem­bre, the Nemo arm­chair is a sort of hu­man fig­ure, both ab­stract and universal. A head and arm­chair rolled into one, hol­lowed out to create a seat which, like a mask, si­mul­ta­ne­ously hides and reveals the per­son sit­ting in it.
