Even though I was unable to be in attendance, it really was an honour to be a part of the Artistar Jewels Temporary Shop that was part of Milan Design Week. With over 100,000 people visiting the various displays and installations, this international celebration of creativity was truly something to behold.
This installation by Gaetano Pesce is meant to symbolize the treatment of women and the disparity between the sexes.
And this treatment, done to the facade of the building, done by British sculptor, Alex Chinneck, takes my breath away.
To see the range of incredible design,
I highly recommend following @milan.design.week on Instagram.
