The last day
ONE WEEK ABOUT Masterly – The Dutch in Milano by Nicole Uniquole, founder and curator of Masterly.
Also this 60th edition of Salone del Mobile comes to an end today. The 5th edition, our anniversary, of Masterly is almost over. And what a pleasure it was to present together again in Milan.
Milan has shown that Design Week can be organized safely. Showing the greenpass (QR code) and a temperature reading upon entry and wearing mouth masks in all indoor areas.
Because if something was literally felt this week: how much we were ready for a positive vibe of new designs again. And meeting each other, producers, suppliers and press in real life. That’s something else than a zoom conversation behind a computer screen.
Masterly therefore made a strong case for a solid side program. From an architects’ breakfast with queen of architects Francine Houben and an evening cocktail for guests of the embassy, consulate general and uniquole. A lunch for the guests of FritsJurgens, a private party for the participants on the last evening, the traditional ‘flower distribution moment’ and eating pizza together with all the participants in the last hour before the dismantling starts again. And all framed by fantastic music.
Thank you to everyone who visited and followed us. It has been an adventure! We will meet again in April 2022. Same Palazzo!
