One week for Milan Design Week 2016 and Salone del Mobile 2016 debut! Today, Milan Design Agenda brings you an exclusive insight from one of best world designers. See Milan Inside Guide by Nina Yashar.
The Palazzo Segreti is for people who prefer distinctive, contemporary design to classical forms. Art deco and high tech styles merge, giving each room a special mood. Iconoclasts and artistic souls will feel at home. Why Nina Yashar selected Palazzo Segreti as one of the Best Milan Hotels ? “for the beautiful antique charm”…
The Bulgari Hotel garden, designed by landscape architect Sophie Agata Ambroise, offers several options that are ideal for meetings and private events, each with a capacity of 50 people and a truly unique exclusivity. Trees and hedges create a series of open-air ‘rooms’ that can be interconnected or partitioned off, with four slight shifts in elevation, three of which are planted with grass. Nina Yashar’s words explain perfectly why her choose, “for its gorgeous garden”!
Potafiori is a perfect Milan restaurant “for its fresh and sofisticated identity” , unexpected layer that is slowly cloaking Milan with a number of hidden jewel destinations. Part flower shop, part cocktail bar and all day restaurant-cafe, the eclectic scene is governed over by Rosalba Piccini, a jazz singer and florist with bright red hair and a vivacious, winning personality. What you said about this NIna Yashar choice?
When you look for milan restaurants, you always have the temptation to try the best milanese cuisine, right? In Nina Yashar opinion, “Pisacco has the best risotto alla milanese”. Additional complimentary contemporary elements including the carefully selected modern furniture and provocative artwork by the artist Gabriella Ciancimino, which acts as a backdrop upon which a variety of contemporary works of art will alternate, all add quirk and charm.
Best Fashion Shops
What it comes to Milan’s best fashion shops, Nina Yashar has no doubt choosing Excelsior Milan, where high fashion, food, design and beautiful architecture meet! Jean Nouvel has retrieved a key point in the Milan urban area, seven floors that seem to be suspended in an envelope of images, a technological flow that ideally links the ancient site to the new hub dedicated to high profile urban shopping…a journey into the future of shopping.
