Marc Ange with Sun­brella

THE MOST IN­STA­GRAMMED project at Mi­lan last year was Le Refuge, a jun­gle-like oa­sis of frondy, pink per­fo­rated-metal palm trees shel­ter­ing an out­door daybed. This time around, its Franco-ital­ian de­signer, Marc Ange, re­turns with what is sure to be an equally eye-catch­ing photo op.

Last year’s palm trees have mu­tated into floor lamps in the La-based de­signer’s Le Roi in­stal­la­tion, a col­lab­o­ra­tion with out­door-fab­ric brand Sun­brella. ‘He is so cu­ri­ous about ma­te­ri­als – their ori­gin, fab­ri­ca­tion and hu­man back­story,’ says Sun­brella’s Marie-hélène Roe­land. ‘To find a de­signer who is equally pas­sion­ate about ma­te­ri­als and colour opens up so many pos­si­bil­i­ties.’
