Ventura Lambrate 2013

I just returned today from a quick trip to Milan for the Salone, followed by a quick overnight train to Paris to see the Eileen Gray show at the Pompidou. All in all it was an inspiring long weekend trip, and somewhat of a whirlwind.  Here I will post some favorites from Ventura Lambrate, which is a spin off of the main fair, showing younger designers and artists. It’s a nice balance to go between the very established furniture houses at Fuori  and the more conceptual, design driven Lambrate.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sophie and Rolf from Studio Roso. They are sculptors who work at varying scales – here they tried their hand at furniture and came up with some very playful and beautifully crafted pieces.

Showing in the same Ventura Lambrate Warehouse, was this table by Maria Scarpulla:

These chairs were also shown in the same space.  Dali?

I also stopped in at 010-020 and saw some smaller scale works:

These Grand cabinets by Mathieu Gustafsson and Niklas Karlssonwere inspired by the detailing of woven rattan and brass clasps seen in vintage handbags, specifically Palmgrens.
