Salone del Mobile su filindeu Gineico Lighting

And of course, there was the Antonangeli launch party of their new lighting products in Archlinea where the incredible outdoor kitchen produced the bellissimo ‘su filindeu’ pasta. This is Italy’s rarest pasta made by only three people in the world.

Other highlights refueling every day with an espresso coffee, where even a coffee from the train station was aromatic and perfectly brewed.

Gineico Lighting Fontana Arte Euroluce 2019

Fontana Arte launched Lasospesa, and like the art of Fontana Arte: the light takes shape in an object that does not preclude function.

And this sumptuous Fonatana Arte Equatore pendant that can also be a table light.

The artist Thomas Demand reproduced a rock chamber, stalactites and stalagmites of a grotto on the island of Mallorca with 30 tons of grey cardboard. This was all shaped by a computer! Remarkable. This piece is called Grotto and Grotesque.  This work was first shown by Prada Foundation in Venice in 2007, the Italian fashion house persuaded him to make an exception and allow them to keep the grey cardboard sections. Now on permanent display at Prada Foundation. Prada Foundation was a design highlight for most and a visit is highly recommended.

Rossana Orlandi continues to ‘make plastic guiltless’, focusing on ways to design with waste plastics. The project is born to inspire the next generation of design in the fight against the environmental plastic pollution which today is one of the biggest problems to our planet. She is an advocate for emerging designer. Delve deeper into Rossana Orlandi’s statement on the Salone de Mobile 2018 prize. Such a great read!


VeniceM launched the Spear Chandelier, striking and futuristic contemporary take on the chandelier.
