Spazio Rossana Orlandi – rossanaorlandi.com
A former tie factory with a divine courtyard becomes a journey of delight. Each room in the building is another door to discover international design, with a particularly craft-based approach. Companies like Piet Hein Eek, Cattelani & Smith, &tradition and a bevy of smaller names provide the goods. We even saw the inimitable Rossana herself, but she was too quick for us to catch!

Instigated by Tom Dixon, the Museum of Science and Technology features some kooky companies. A wide reprentation of Dixon’s own collection takes up a fair amount of space, but the new Futuristic and multi-functional collaboration with Adidas is MOST impressive.

The best marketing at the fair was hands (noses) down was from Studio Job. A series of posters and postcards featuring international icons Mohammed Ali, Mother Teresa, Marilyn Monroe and Albert Einstein wearing a gold nose had everyone wondering. The studio chose to feature just three new products en masse, all in white, in their impressive space at MOST – including the drawer with the gold nose as a drawer handle. Picking a nose has never been more functional.
