As usual the Spazio Rossana Orlandi was one of our favorite places in Milan this year. You just can't beat the athmosphere and patina of this space. So many things are to be discovered and the attention and love to detail is such a great pleasure. This year was a wide range of objects collected under one roof: Li Edelkoort curated the "Talent Milan" exhibition, a selection of 21 design graduates from 11 countries, which was happening in the court yard mongst other new works of various designers.
In the various galleries within the space were Piet Hein Eek, Weltevree, Established & Sons and Nacho Carbonell amongst many, many more. Pictured above is TAFs Soft Parcel sofa and one part of Tina Gerini's "Playing Memphis" installation. Below some impressions of the court yard bustle and a radiator in the shape of a ram.
Brit Leissler lives and acts between London and Berlin. After receiving a Master degree in product design from the Royal College of Art in London she started her own Shoot the Stylist! design studio. She also works as a design educator for various institutions and founded Punch'n'Cuddle Ltd., producing and distributing her own products.
When taking a break from the design world she writes, sings and composes quirky electronic pop or travels the planet. Brit loves all forms of eccentricity, joins up the dots and aims to get into interesting conversations with all kinds of weird and wonderful people. As a hardcore digital camera gunslinger she shoots everything that moves and grooves. She doesn't eat animals, is hot for cheese, loves the Kensington Squirrels, robotic dance moves and life enhancing ideas.
