    ‘This Way’ by Design Academy Eindhoven | Milan 2011.

    31st May

    I believe that this could be my last Milan post for the year. Fitting, as it is the last day of the month. A bit sad really, but it is time to move on. I would like to wrap up with my visit to a little exhibition I loved very much – ‘This Way’ showcasing young designers from Design Academy Eindhoven. Curated by Ilse Crawford, british designer and Head of Department for Man and Well-being at the Academy (and a personal design hero of mine), this event assembled a fine selection of Bachelor Degree and Masters projects, alongside selected alumni works…

    30th May

    Good morning yellowtrace friends and happy new week to you all. Now, now… You guys didn’t think I was finished with the Milan report for the year, did you? No way man! I have lots more stuff to show you. Well actually, I don’t. There’s only a little bit left to go, but I am determined to share with you (almost) everything I saw. So good of me, right? Right.

    Today is a bit of a mixed bag of the things I saw and places I visited in various areas on different days throughout the week, which I had trouble grouping with other posts. So that’s how they get their own separate day. Enjoy!

    Rotor: Ex Limbo Installation at Fondazione Prada | Milan 2011.

    27th May

    Brussels-based design collective Rotor presented an intriguing exhibition during Milan Design week (which runs through to June 5th). Titled “Ex Limbo”, the event is held at Fondazione Prada on Via Fogazzaro, a space in which Prada have shown their fashion collection every season for a number of years. Rotor’s work deals in ideas of how buildings are used, and reuse of material, resources and waste. For this project, they chose to assemble and reorganise architectural and scenographic elements of Prada runway shows dating back to 1993, which had been dismantled and placed in storage…

    Talking Textiles: An Initiative Curated by Lidewij Edelkoort | Milan 2011.

    25th May

    I am so excited to share with you one of my absolutely favourite Milan moments – Talking Textiles, an initiative curated by Lidewij Edelkoort. Edelkoort is a dutch trend forecaster and curator of design, and for this exhibition she collaborated with Rossana Orlandi (I cannot stop talking about this woman, can I?). The event took place at the beautiful and highly prestigious Spazio Gianfranco Ferré on via Pontaccio in Brera, where the brand has presented its fashion shows since the building’s inauguration in 1998. Absolutely stunning space.

    The exhibition showcased a large selection of design that uses innovative textile techniques, heralding the revival of textiles in our interiors. On displayed were functional and more abstract/ artistic pieces such as curtains, furniture, lighting, rugs, accessories, as well as multimedia installations, digital animations and film projections…
