Joining Salone del Mobile for the third year, fashion brand COS creates a temporary concept store, a collaberation with the Japanese design studio Nendo. Nendo’s designer Oki Santo created this installation for COS, a series of white shirts displayed on stands and hanging van the ceiling in different heights. The white shirts are white, till they reach the steel rectangular frames then the shirt will be dyed in different colours of grey and black.
“The smartly ordered shirts are crisp, classic white until they fall inside the steel cube frames, at which point they take on colour as though the space itself has dyed them” Oki Sato says.
Nendo also created a selection of COS pieces and items.
A new partnership between Ton Dixon and Adidas. And this is the first installation of a two-year collaboration. Show at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, they designed pieces that can be used for more then one purpose. Like the padded parkas that convert to sleeping bags, ‘ultralite’ hoodies that can be zipped into small pouches during travel, and a spectacular modular five-in-one overall design that converts to a coat, jacket, pant, skirt or short. The collection shows you a new way of looking at sportswear for the future.
The Maison Martin Margiela house was designed by street artist Cédric Bernadotte, entitled Residual Spaces. Living in the garden of MMM headquarters, a web of cellophane symbolizes the introduction of the brand concepts of ”spontaneity and artisanal into an urban setting,” by giving function to non-traditional spaces. Bernadotte’s work uses the pre-existing urban landscape as a base material for home/decor, showing that we can ultimately reside wherever we choose.
