Galleria Rossana Orlandi is always a top design destination in Milan, be it Milan Design Week or just another time of the year. This amazing design space is also well known for having more showcasing more than one design showcase each year. Anna Karlin was among the exhibitors who debuted their collections in Milan and today we’re letting you in on some of the showcased products.
London-born and NYC-based furniture and interior designer Anna Karlin made her debut in Milan presenting a variety of pieces at Galleria Rossana Orlandi counting from some brand new additions to her ongoing Subverting Domestic Familiarity collection, to her iconic Chess Stools, some new iterations of her Dimple Lamp, her Curved Chaise, a pair of W Chairs among many more.
Among Karlin’s collections that she showcased at Galleria Rossana Orlandi, we highlight the Subverting Domestic Familiarity collection which essentially consists of a series of innovative design products that explore the relationship between natural forms and those that are manmade in an interesting and successful style.
In regards to the main concept behind the highlight of her collection, Anna Karlin has stated the following, according to Archiproducts:
“We have a fundamental need for familiarity or to be surrounded by natural forms (…) where there is fragility, there is strength. Where there is disequilibrium, there is balance. Where there vulnerability, there is support. The works are a visual interpretation of these emotional paradigms that exist in our everyday lives.”
Be it a table, a chair or a lighting product, by having a look at more than one of Anna Karlin’s products it’s quite evident that not only is she interested in natural forms, but also in adopting a curvaceous style in all of her products. Aside from being natural-looking, these products that were seen by many people at Galleria Rossana Orlandi are definitely pleasant to the eye and to more than one living room decor.
Galleria Rossana Orlandi is a place where every fan of her work stops by not only to have a closer look at some of her finest design works but also to witness some corporate and cultural events. Inside the Galleria, be it Milan Design Week or not, you can find a variety of unique furniture such as lighting, mirrors, sofas, tables, among many others.
