It’s been two years since my last Salone del Mobile/ Milan Design Week – so I have been looking forward to this event for months. During press preview day, the first thing I had to see was this installation called “Open Sky” from COS and Phillip K. Smith III.
Housed in Palazzo Isimbardi, the installation is a huge fan-shaped mirror structure that seems to be making contact with the Milanese sky (and the beautiful summer-like sunny day really helps).
Here is exactly how the palazzo looks as part of the installation. It’s a merging of the old and the new, under an open sky full of possibilities.
