The FvF Apartment in Mulackstrasse, Berlin is a monster cool collaborative project between interview magazine Freunde von Freunden and Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra.

BassamFellows has turned a former blacksmith’s workshop into a lifestyle gallery in Milan’s Brera district, featuring Europe’s most extensive selection of products by furniture designers Craig Bassam and Scott Fellows. The renowned space, designed by architect Michele de Lucchi, was traditionally used for one-off design exhibitions and pop up events, before becoming a dedicated space known as EXIT, an adventurous Milanese gallery, event and exhibition venue.
Holy guacamole! Apparatus Studio’s lighting is absolutely ridiculous. As in ridiculously amazing. If I may paraphrase someone dear to my heart – “give me brass, black and white and I’ll drop my pants any-day”. My sentiments exactly! Here, aged brass, hand-etched glass, leather, porcelain and found objects are combined to an extraordinary effect. There’s a beautiful warm glow about these lights reserved only for the meticulously crafted hand-made objects. Handsome style and careful design create that elusive sense of balance between vintage and contemporary aesthetic.

Alessandro and Francesco Mendini of Atelier Mendini, in collaboration with Studiopepe, recently opened the doors of their new two-storey Milanese gallery Fragile. Forget neutral spaces with toned-down style, and brace yourself for loads of personality and character – the pieces on show are linked in an unconventional way, becoming the main part of the exhibition as a developer of style and ideas. An innovative and active design hub, the showroom aims to produce a whole retail concept characterised by irony and strong personality that matches Fragile’s precious collection of historic design pieces.
