3 – Caesarstone presents: Stone Age Folk by Jaime Hayon
Unveiled at the neoclassical Palazzo Serbelloni, leading quartz manufacturer Caesarstone presents “Stone Age Folk” by Jaime Hayon, the pinnacle event of their year-long collaboration with the world renowned Spanish designer for the 2017 Designer Collaboration Programme. Inspired by flora, fauna and folklore from different cultures, Jaime Hayon designed an architectural pavilion, which references the famous Crystal Palace built in Hyde Park, London for the Great Exhibition of 1851, combining over 40 Caesarstone colours with metal and stained glass.
“A combination of art, design and architecture, this kaleidoscopic installation will be something that visitors have never seen before. There is a strong element of surprise in the visible contrast between the Napoleonic, marble-made palace and this beautiful pavilion, made with 21st century Caesarstone’s quartz. Visitors entering this fantasy world will see the Caesarstone material perform in a way that incites new levels of creativity and have an amazing visual image of its ‘arty’ and luxurious qualities. I hope, with this very graphic and folkloric installation, to put a smile on people’s faces and compel them to think that they are in Milan for the furniture fair, but they have just seen a ‘funtastico’ world.” Jaime Hayon, Designer

4 – EXCAVATION: Evicted.
A project by Paul Cocksedge and Friedman Benda in collaboration with Beatrice Trussardi is on view at the Fondazione Luigi Rovati. Evicted is a physical and visual reaction to Cocksedge’s eviction from his London studio due to property development. The place the acclaimed designer has spent twelve years in, building his career, has been mined as a direct source for a new body of work. Cocksedge drilled down into the studio’s floor to excavate material that he then transformed into five distinct furniture pieces. Each of these works documents, commemorates and preserves not only his own time in the location, but the building’s own history. As he notes, his purpose is to “celebrate and release the tension and creative energy that’s shaped the space.” Must see.

5- A Matter of Perception: LINKING MINDS
The 2017 edition of Matter of Perception see Mosca Partners and DAMN° return to Palazzo Litta during Milan Design Week together again with some of the most interesting protagonists in international design. The third edition of the Matter of Perception exhibition will explore the theme of LINKING MINDS as very often, good ideas are generated by closed encounters and long lasting collaborations. The goal is to create an exhibition that lends into the creative process between two or more persons, ideas that grow from scratch through a mix of friendship, mutual trust, experience and the result is a wonderful final project. Diptyque unveils the new diffuser Sablier, which is celebrated through an original project designed by internationally renowned Italian artist Felice Limosani. Through the contribution of the artist, the diffuser Sablier Diptyque will be exalted with a play of forms and shapes, alternating six colors corresponding to six different fragrances: the invitation is to discover a new and unexpected object, to celebrate the incessant flow of time.
