Milan Design Agenda is bringing you the amazing interview that CovetED had with this incredible Italian Design Legend.
After working in the fashion world for over 20 years, Rossana Orlandi took the risk of changing her path and started a career in design. When she decided to open her gallery in 2002, she was just “buying stupid things” to fill up space. But it all changed when she discovered Sebastian Wrong, the designer of ‘Spun Light’, produced by Flos. The gallery’s first installation had an enormous success thanks to the support of friends, design magazines and schools. “It has been super exciting since the beginning because designers started welcoming me with an enormous passion”, says Rossana.

She’s been known to help and challenge young designers from all over the world, as well as working with some relevant names such as Tom Dixon, Marcel Wanders, and Studio Job. The 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.
