They say a trip to Milan is not complete until you’ve visited the Spazio Rossana Orlandi. Set in an old tie factory, the store is where you will find both contemporary and vintage furniture, as well as limited edition and unique designs. What’s more is that the place is where you will find the works of many young and up-and-coming designers from around the world.
This year during the Salone del Mobile, the store has been transformed into an exhibition space for both established and young designers alike. Check them out.
Spanish designer Jaime Hayón designed a series of ceramic objects for Japanese company Kutani Choemon. The Kutani style of ceramics features the blue and white colors with color glazes.
This is one of five Story Vases on display, which tells the stories of five women from the Siyazama Project, which is a collective of women working with traditional bead craft in South Africa. Each vase tells a part of a story – about these womens’ daily lives, love, life and death and more.
This is the upstairs space of the store, where you see a wide range of products on display.
I originally had thought that these were just displays for sale, but they were actually shelving that was part of the exhibits. They really blended in with the rest of the store space.
