The Italian Institute of Culture in Paris presents the first important retrospective on Nucleo, the Italian art and design collective led by Piergiorgio Robino.

Armchair tourists, we’re off to California! I recently had the luck to attend this year’s Modernism Week in Palm Springs, with my good friends.

This year’s premier design event, Salone del Mobile in Milan, will be hosting a very special exhibition titled “Where Architects Live”.
