home > milandesignweek2015#ventura lambrate part 1

Also this year Ventura Lambrate district was of the most interesting areas, both for the exhibition spaces that for design research. With my pleasant surprise I found many Italian studies, something that had not occurred previous years where the presence of Italian designers was very low. I’m so happy about this! and then start with an amazing italian brand. Today I show you the first part of the companies I selected and I liked more, I hope you enjoy!

Giopato&Coombes is an Italy based studio formed by italian designer Cristina Giopato and english architect Christopher Coombes. The design duo working in interdisciplinary fields, from interiors and design to graphics and production, because interdisciplinarity is the fuel that generates creative development. They designed furnitures for many companies leader such as Living Divani, Miniforms, Lema, Kenzo, Fiam Italia and others. This year presented at Fuorisalone their first lights collection called “Editions”. The models are very cool and combine Italian craftsmanship with contemporary style.

Aparentment is a design and photography studio from Barcelona founded by Josep Vila Capdevila. I loved their “Marblelous” collection composed by eclectic objects and accessories. Really very funny! Here their website where you can find others interesting projects.

Wendy Legro and Maarten Collignon are the founders of Studio WM, a design studio based in Rotterdam. Their work varies from furniture to lighting, from scent diffusers to interactive mirrors. All with great attention to detail and an intuitive approach to the sensorial experience. Scent, touch and sound are in harmony with the physical product striving to create sensitive and poetical design. I fell in love with pieces made with dicroic glass that shows a gradual transition from mirror to lamp through a simple touch. The filtered glass can both reflect and transmit light depending on the light intensity coming from behind. Reflections visible in the mirror are filtered with a glow of two contrasting colours. As a lamp, white light is being separated into various soft colour tones, producing an ambient light in the room. Minimal design and dreamy aesthetic together are perfect!

The Label/Breed is a project focused on creating beneficial collaborations between Dutch designers and manufacturers, and promoting the development of innovative interior objects for a changing world. At Ventura Lambrate presented “Collection 1.00″on which various designers have exhibited their products, results of collaboration with manufacturing industry.

Italian designer Roberto Sironi presented at Fuorisalone his first collection of ceramic objects. After his studies he has worked with different design studios where he has developed his design approach.
Roberto considers each project as a story, developed through research that involves different aspects, from rituals and anthropological references to historical memory, designing with a contemporary approach always appropriate to the context.
He draws with the ambition to reveal the expressive potential of each material chosen, through a synthetic and minimal style, trying to reveal the poetry of the objects.

Stay tuned for the second part with the best of Ventura Lambrate I’ll post next week and have a great weekend!
