Highlights from Milan Design Week 2017

Highlights from Milan Design Week 2017

This past design week in Italy it’s been sooo nice. I’ve never seen Milan that busy !!!! Since I spent just two days there I decided to concentrate on two areas: Brera (my overall favourite) and Tortona, I regret I didn’t visit the Ventura – Lambrate since I saw so many nice things on Instagram.

Anyway here’s my Top Ten:

1/ INTERNO ITALIANO 

Hidden in a little corner of Brera I discover this brand inspired by the Italian way of living and created by Giulio Iacchetti. Internoitaliano objects “enjoy a special status: they are happy objects, the fruit of a 50/50 joint effort between the designer who designed them and the craftsman who lovingly made them,” I think you can really tell by the look of them !!


2/GIOVELAB

GIOVELAB is a small but sparkling ceramic studio based in Trentino. They are inspired by simplicity and produce an unconventional table collection made of porcelain, stoneware and wood from their local land. I was absolutely in love with those little spoons and the all ceramic collections (the packaging is also very cute! Perfect for a nice present). You can order from their online shop.

10 Best Cafes/Restaurants in Milan

Next week the Milan Design Week kicks off (also called il ‘Salone del Mobile’), I’ll be spending just a couple of days there and I can’t wait for it.

Milan is showing off the best of itself during the week and all the showrooms and art galleries open their doors to design events and installations.  In this city furniture is almost as important as food, so don’t forget to treat yourself to a nice meal. Here’s my top 10 list of cafes and restaurants around the city.

1/ 10 CORSO COMO

This cafe’ is hidden inside a traditional Mialense Courtyard, once you crossed the door from the busy/party Corso Como road you’ll find yourself transported into this amazing space: it’s a cafe, a fashion shop and also an art gallery and bookshop at the first floor. It’s definitely one of my favourite places in Milan, I have to say, I never try the food, but I had coffee and drinks few times and  I’ve never been disappointed!

PER/USE Accessories

Hello everyone! This weekend it really felt like Spring is finally coming here in London, and that put me on such a good mood!!  I have a very busy month ahead ( I’m off to Ireland next weekend and to Lisbon the one after) so here’s a quick post of some cool accessories that I recently discovered from the brand  PER/USE.

Minimal Valentine’s Day Gifts

I’ve never been a fan of Valentine’s day: if you’re single it’s just a horrible day when the all world seems to remind you about it (I’ve been there so many times), but also as a couple I don’t think you need a special day to celebrate love….

That said, a part of me still loves and hopes to receive a little gift, something minimal that maybe makes you remember a special moment you spent together.
So here’s my minimal Valentine’s day Gift List:
