Presenting state of the fashion furniture is one thing, creating a lasting impression is another. During the recently concluded Milan Design Week 2015 – which officially goes by the name of Salone del Mobile, isaloni or known as Milan Furniture Show as well – there were some of the highest fashion brand houses, who went for the typical champagne-and-photo call type of presentation, and then there were those who took you inside their universe.
Here and there you had fashion labels realizing interactive art installations throughout the 54th Milan Design Week. Milan Design Agenda show you the ones that got everyone buzzing….and is a way to recall memoirs of Milan Design Week 2015!
The french fashion house hosted their Objets Nomades installations in the historic Palazzo Bocconi during Milan Design Week 2015. They asked nine established and emerging designers to reinvent their signature Art of Travel collection to create their own unique Louis Vuitton travel items.
The brand worked with designers including Atelier Oï, Barber & Osgerby and Patricia Urquiola. They created items from hammocks to stools and portable lights. Pictured here is the Swing Chair by Patricia Urquiola.
French brand Maison Margiela celebrated in its new Milan store with a tessellated wood curtain draped around the entrance lift and counter. The brand worked with Italian company Wood-Skin to create the flexible wooden fabric using plywood triangles.
The new store will house its new creative director, John Galliano’s, first haute couture collection. Glass cabinets and mirrored walls sit alongside trompe-l’oeil that gives the effect of traditional wood panelling and mouldings on the walls.
After a first collection of valets, side tables, low stools and other small items of furniture created in 2013, Hermès added to its Les Nécessaires series with new and innovative pieces at Milan this year.
The installation featured a new stool inspired by the iconic Hermès silk scarf, round marble coffee tables and a new collection of furnishing fabrics and wallpapers inspired by the multicolour flora and fauna of the jungle.
Swedish fashion company Cos partnered with New York City design firm Snarkitecture to transform Milan’s Spazio Erbe into a translucent cave.
The installation, created using thousands of strips of white fabric hung from the ceiling, was inspired by the brands S/S ’15 collection.
In true Marni style, the Italians transformed their Milan showroom into a fantastical world of bright colours and cheerful displays.
This year the installation, Mercado de Paloquemao, was modelled on a colourful fruit market displaying their decorative items for the home.
