Milan: Day Four – Spazio Rossana Orlandi

IMG_8106a

At Salone del Mobile, some designers exhibit in spaces outside of the regular fairgrounds. One such space is Spazio Rossana Orlandi. A master of engaging environments, Rossana took over this former tie factory in 2002. What she has created here includes a green courtyard where you could easily spend an entire day soaking in the creativity, plus galleries and a store. Her goal: to forecast and promote young and upcoming designers, from all over the world. MORE PHOTOS…

The approach to her space: Go through an archway and turn left into designers' paradise.

Wire animals in the courtyard appear as mirages or ghosts.
