A carry-on of 55 x 40 x 20, that was all we could take to Milan. It was a hard task but we managed to get to Italy with our small bags full of the essentials and our minds full of expectations.
Every street and every corner of Milan invited us in to get a closer look at unique pieces of design and innovation. And so we went in.
From Spazio Rossana Orlandi and it’s eclectic mixture of young and upcoming designers, to the focus on technological innovation of Most Exhibition.
From a journey through history and analysis of design in the Triennale Design Museum, to breathing passion for design between the walls of Studio Castiglioni.
We saw creativity and experimentation while walking through the streets of the Ventura Lambrate Area, Brera District, the Zona Tortona, and during the visits to the studios of Piero Lissoni and Michele de Lucchi, just to finish our trip with hours of products from established designers and from young designers (Salone Satellite) in the Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
We took business cards, magazines, postcards, flyers and everything we thought would help us remember the things we liked or inspired us the most. There was a lot of information to process, at times it was overwhelming.
And so we returned from this intense five-day trip with nearly-exploding bags from the extra kilos of full-color paper. But our minds were the ones that gained the most weight.
We needed a few days to process this trip and savor all the sources of inspiration we runned into. Things are now in place and we are ready to fill our minds to the limit, once again.
