Some installations and product debuts with Invisible Collection: here is your essential round-up from Milan.

How do you sum up Italian design in a few words? The short version of a long answer is a harmonious balance between Form, Function and Aesthetic. Having established that, here is a quick recap of the latest from the unmissable Salone del Mobile (those in the know, just call it Salone) for those who truly enjoy Italian design in all its splendor.  

Speaking of which, we’ll need a few more adjectives than a mere splendid, to fully express our appreciation of Dimorestudio’s fantastic installation at the intersection of “Cinecittà and the Biennale, where art, culture and cinema dialogue mingling together.” The creative minds of Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci staged “five atmospheres that are dreamlike time capsules”, with five distinct identities. We were in awe and wouldn’t have expected anything less from the design duo who graced our Mews House with a mesmerizing, original installation, a few months ago. 

To celebrate the opening of her oh-so-chic studio in the heart of Milan, Osanna Visconti created an exclusive capsule collection of delicate vase candleholders, available exclusively through us. With an elaborate base in bronze, ingeniously shaped like an assemblage of leaves, these lovely objects channel Osanna‘s poetic streak. Cast with the lost wax technique, the candleholders feature an additional tube in hand-blown glass that when inserted in the base can also be used as a one-of-its-kind flower vase. The unveiling of the capsule collection was feted during an intimate gathering of friends of Invisible Collection.  

Milan saw another exciting product unveiling, this time from the collaboration of Francesco Balzano and Giobagnara. The new capsule collection, Assoluto, is a six-piece offering that pays homage to the late Carlo Scarpa. The collection is defined by the intersection of rigorously geometrical volumes dressed in calfskin, creating an eye-catching interplay of light and shadow. The hefty forms and sharp edges are softened by the natural feel of the leather. The collection includes a coffee table, console, bench with drawers, and a tray, each of which can be customized with a selection of leathers such as calfskin, suede, and nappa in various colors. This exclusive collection is only available through us.

Osanna Visconti

During her childhood in Rome, Osanna and her sister would play with pieces of art created for their mother by Lucio Fontana, Mario Ceroli and Arnaldo Pomodoro. One could say that the pieces she creates today, are inspired by those wonderful memories, or maybe, they are a result of her own femininity… or maybe both. “I made jewellery for a few years, but then I decided to make jewels for the home, with the same technique but on a larger scale”.  In recent years, Osanna’s attention has increasingly focused on objects and furnishings. Made by the best artisans, every creation is modelled by hand from wax, which is then fused in an art foundry. “I would define myself as an artisan because I love crafting things, and I would also define myself as being somewhat of a designer. I really like being in the foundry where the wax models are made, spending my days modelling with my hands.”
