Milan Design Week 2022: EDIT Napoli arrives in Milan at Padiglione Brera
The unreleased works awarded at the third edition of EDIT Napoli will be exhibited for the first time in Milan during FuoriSalone 2022, in the suggestive spaces of Padiglione Brera.
An exhibition center with a strong identity and a name that combines the uniqueness of the artiest district of the FuoriSalone, Padiglione Brera is ready to welcome the unreleased works awarded during the third edition of EDIT Napoli.
The 2022 edition of the Milan Design Week will be the first occasion in which the projects displayed during the event dedicated to authorial design – held in Naples – will benefit from the international acclaimed fair in Milan, scheduled from 6 to 12 June 2022.
Padiglione Brera brings design to the cloisters of the San Simpliciano complex, architectural jewels that are normally impenetrable, which have been open to the public only on exceptional occasions in the past, so much to make them unique venues for unmissable appointments during Design Week.
An authentic hub, born from the initiative of Alessio Monti and Andrea Galimberti – they both have a long experience in furniture – Padiglione Brera is an exceptional location being able to polarize the best of design in one place, in the heart of Milan and the elegant Brera district.
This is the exclusive context in which the best unreleased projects of EDIT Napoli (October 2021) will be exhibited.
After being selected by a jury of renowned experts, consisting of the duo Formafantasma (i.e. designers Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin), the French interior and furniture designer Dorothée Meilichzone and the web director of ELLE Decor Italia – Alessandro Valenti, the following projects will be displayed at Padiglione Brera.
Stamuli, a Stockholm-based design studio made by a collective of creatives and technical people which was awarded in the main section for its Unstressed Chair, a seat made of shaped aluminum tubulars.
Stamuli is characterized by the element of color, often playing an important role in their design, an experience that focuses on materiality with an eye to sustainability and the use of materials of the future.
In Milan they allow us to see the blown glass collections by Danish designer Alexander Kirkeby, in search of unexpected tactile experiences with a deep connection to tradition, creating functional and unique objects made in glass.
The works of Caterina Frongia are also on display, focusing on the experimentation of Sardinia’s textile craft, her land of origin: a current look at the art of weaving.
Finally, the ceramics of ccontinua+mamt, a brand originating from the four-handed collaboration between Chiara Caselli and Francesco Carrasso, an Italian creative duo based in Amsterdam.
Their works give shape to new domestic narratives, through a collection of illustrated ceramics: their tattooed clays, in fact, tell stories, exploiting their social, cultural and aesthetic values, and using a popular and natural primitive imagery.
All the projects which have been awarded with the prize for best unreleased work will benefit from a free reserved space at the fourth edition of EDIT Napoli, scheduled for next October, as well as the opportunity to present their collections at FuoriSalone.
The partnership between EDIT Napoli and Padiglione Brera will be renewed again in 2023.
