D’SIGN’s visit to Milan Design Week 2014: Adriana Lohmann
Zone Tortona is illuminated
The Salone del Mobile in Milan 2014 which took place last week. Is the design event of the year for designers, brands, (interior) architects, blogs and magazines from all around the world. Not only is the very latest, but the best of the best of the best is here to be found. Although most people visit in one day the Design Week Milan there more than enough to do for a whole week. The offer is immense.
We travelled this year to Italy to spot in Zone Tortona, Ventura Lambrate and on SaloneSatellite, the young designers eager to show their work and talent. We started at Zone Tortona where you could find more than 200 events. Among the many galleries and small shops there prevails a real festival atmosphere by the many people who walk the streets of this lively and colourful neighbourhood. The excitement started when we walked to the bridge that leads into the Via Tortona.
There we found Adriana Lohmann an ex model from brazil now living in Italy, with her presentation of handcrafted Luminous Sculptures. Made out in different exclusive materials, crystal, metallic, plastic and high – tech materials. Here work has a strong visual scenographical impact and is ecologically aware by the use of residual material.
