ONE WEEK ABOUT Dutch Designers in Milan 2016
Distribution The Dots #13
The people spreading the Dots for the 2016 Milan Design Week are lucky. Four days before the opening of the 2016 Milan Design Week, threading dots through the city, you are the first to get a unique glimpse of what there is to see this year. A precondition is, however, that the designers have already arrived. This year, the area is strikingly empty. Neatly swept concrete spaces in Lambrate are opened to us. No one there. It is remarkably quiet and sterile. Although …. At the Via Savona we’re going down the rabbit hole. The back exit of Moooi gives us access to an unprecedented wealth. The world has regained color. In front of the press counter is an object with lots of light. Parakeets illuminated as lightly as feathers are gently swaying back and forth in the dark. Say no more … just say Mooi!
