Architects and their homes

Dove vivono gli Architetti - Where architects live
Salone del Mobile 2014

On my way out of the Salone del Mobile I managed to fit in a gem of a show. My Interior Designer friends had decided to wait for the coach at a cafĂ©, so I was able to take a quick look round the pavillion dedicated to Bathrooms. Within it there was an exhibition which I had seen advertised all over Milan. The exhibition, curated by Francesca Molteni, was dedicated to eight great architects of our time and their homes. Eight stands for eight architects: Shigeru Ban, Massimiliano Fuksas, Zaha Hadid, Marcio Kogan, Mario Bellini, David Chipperfield, Bijoy Jain/Studio Mumbai, Daniel Libeskind. Withing each space a different experience made of shapes, sounds and a video, showing each architect being interviewed and telling the story of his or her houses and homes.

Bath time

During my trip to the Design Week we visited an exhibition of Italian products called 100% BE Original Design organised by Elle Decor Italia.

The exhibition took place against the backdrop of the Palazzo Reale, in the Duomo district of Milan.

I was struck by the beauty of the products by Italian ceramic company Flaminia.

Don't you think these three designs would make any bathroom a very elegant place?
