Galleria Rossana Orlandi spices up Milano FuoriSalone 2017

A selection of stunning projects on show at Orlandi’s sparkling world on the occasion of Milano Design Week

Rossana Orlandi portrayed in her gallery’s private courtyard

To cross the now legendary gate of Galleria Rossana Orlandi, especially if Milano FuoriSalone is on, means finding yourself thrown in a world where both functional and aesthetic rules are subverted in the name of dynamic flows of energies and ideas reaching from any corner of the planet. You know, you are not supposed to enjoy every single inch of it, but sometimes the best surprises hit us from unexpected directions. So, please, be curious and let yourself be seduced by Rossana Orlandi’s kaleidoscopic galaxy. We did too, while taking the chance to draft a list of the most exciting projects on display.

The evocative outdoor courtyard stages the Freedom Lamp, a lighting collection by YIPmade – acronym for Young In Prison Foundation, that in partnership with Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout offered former young prisoners from Malawi a chance to start a new life by creating unique design products.

Ethics is the name of the game for the family of plant containers designed by Francesco Faccin and manufactured by Peter Mabeo in Botswana through the use of recycled metal sheets. A set of reassuring and familiar complements, in-between local traditions and more contemporary codes.

Once inside, arranged along the gallery’s corridor, the Wood Stealth Table and Marble Stealth Table by Enrico Marone Cinzano provide a virtuous example of eco-sustainable design: the first one is made from 200 year-old recovered larch wood beams coming straight from the dismantling of an old Alps’ chalet; the second is a coffee table in recycled aluminum that is treated to withstand scratches and topped with a marble called Zebrino, carved in Tuscany and coming from a batch of leftover materials.

Featured in the Rossana Orlandi Selection, we warmly recommend the Fossil consolle and cabinet combo by Nacho Carbonell, whose highly lyrical approach is able to turn furniture into perfectly living organisms, fantastic creatures made of pure wonder and amazement.

Don’t miss out another Italian designer named Guglielmo Poletti, freshly popped out from the Design Academy Eindhoven. With 4 pieces on show – bench, stool, coffee table and consolle – featured in the Equilibrium collection, he managed to create an harmonious, sophisticated balance between all material components.

Once we were there, the fifth work by another Video, is also worth a look: this video-art project shot on Feb. 22nd, 2017 in Venice shows 24h loop images of the Grand Canal as seen from Palazzo Pisani. The 4K digital film embedded into a period window frame aims to engage technology’s most poetic dimension to deliver emotional suggestions of places at risk.

Let’s stay on the ground-floor, only a few steps away from the courtyard. Here, the latest collections by Scarlet Splendour – the luxury design leading brand picked by Orlandi for the third year in a row – involve a parade of hyper-creative designers able to give decorative patterns, ethic atmosphere and retro aesthetics a wildly ironic and contemporary touch. See the Mandala cabinet by Matteo Cibic, who snatched this year’s EDIDA prize as Best Designer of the Year.

His latest creations also include Strike and Otello, a mirror and coat hanger featured in the Vanilla Noir collection, first launched last year and inspired by Indian handicraft with resin inlay work.

Graphic patterns and neo-classical hints define the Nesso collection by Matteo Cibic for Scarlet Splendour: a set of tables, chairs, containers and rugs built on delicate nuances and brass finishes.

Facing Scarlet Splendour in the same courtyard, Sé unveils Sé Ensamble, a charming domestic installation unfolding into four separate environments gathered together as a proper flat: Lounge, Dining Room, Dressing Room and Saloon, dotted with plenty of precious details and finishes.

All habitats share a common stylistic feel, although malleable according to each room’s main functionality: a mix of colours, textures, geometries and forms creating multiple layers of linguistic codes.

Let’s hop to the basement, that shows a truly interesting project promoted by Pretziana, the cutting-edge brand headed by Ivano Atzori and Kyre Chenven and focused on enhancing the value of Sardinia’s local traditions by injecting ancient crafting techniques in the design world. On display, Heritage, an artisanal rug collection; Sisters, ceramic vases echoing the wedding gifts given to young Sardinian brides; Ceremony Fire Place Tools, indeed a fireplace tool line.

Right on the upper level, Piet Hein Eek has once again installed his small, slightly informal headquarters bringing Dutch friends, collaborators and product to Milan. Without sacrificing live dj-sets and juicy treats of the like.

We definitely enjoyed it all, especially the Enormous Beam Cupboard N. 9 assembled with old wooden beams and featuring finely crafted drawers and doors.

Let’s stay in Holland, with a stunning installation by NLXL: a lovable kaleidoscope where visitors are allowed to take selfies and post them on Instagram. An original and funny trick to let people experience the brand’s latest lines launched at FuoriSalone 2017
