‘A true poetic presentation of works, the story behind each piece eloquently told through space and design,’ says Tristan.
British designer Lee Broom’s (literal) megawatt exhibition – titled Divine Inspiration – presented six new lighting designs in his largest showcase at the fair in the history of his brand. Housed in a Brustalist space in Milan's Brera district, it comprised over 100 lights, creating a narrative that spoke to both the manmade and the divinely inspired.
‘An extremely well crafted, strong masculine space with a focus on rich materiality juxtaposed skillfully against industrial elements. This hit all the right notes for me,’ says Tristan. The showcase expressed the idea of a contemporary home-scape – free of trends but rather informed by materiality and the personal needs of the client. Individuality is the cornerstone of Henge’s design philosophy, with each piece offered in a completely customisable format.
Says Trsitan: ‘A worthwhile Uber trip away from the center of Milan, Nilufar Gallery offers a tastefully curated mix of collectible design in a beautiful industrial setting.’ A fascinating melting pot of styles and influences, the gallery presented the works of 25 artists.
‘While I am not the biggest proponent of using bright or patterned fabrics, the selection and quality of their fabric range has me lusting after a project in which I can experiment more with fabric.
‘A beautiful dreamscape of design and innovation with a focus on new techniques in terms of finishes and materiality, going far beyond the standard furniture and lighting ranges,’ says Tristan
