After 18 months of delay due to Covid 20219, SuperSalone finally happened during the last week. The event was attended by editors, designers, architects and buyers. Who gathered to see the showrooms and take advantage of the new collections and trends that the featuring brands presented.
Beyond the Supersalone trade show, during the same days were happening the design houses. Such as Dior’s fabulous Louis XVI chair exhibition and Hermès’ artistic textile show to Artemest’s curated orders of water-inspired objects. And that’s why we bring here in this article some of the best finds from Supersalone 2021. Therefore keep reading and get inspired just like us:
Dior Medallion Chair
In 1947, Christian Dior selected the Louis XVI-style chair to accommodate guests in his studio. And the chair has become a signature of the house ever since. This year, Dior hired 17 artists and designers, including Pierre Yovanovitch, India Mahdavi, Studio Dimore, Nendo, and Nacho Carbonell to rethink Louis XVI’s design. The resulting collection is a beautiful tribute not only to Dior’s house but to the architectural value of the simple chair at Supersalone 2021.
A ‘curiosity cabinet’ hidden in Milan’s Via Manzoni, it featured Gucci’s new lifestyle collection bursting with modernity during supersalone 2021. Guests could experience peeking inside a miniature Gucci “mouse house” while pencil cases chattered, notebooks clattered in the air and a toy train spun on the ceiling.
Tod’s Recycled Event
Tod’s commissioned American artist Willie Cole to use materials salvaged from the shoe brand’s Le Marche studio to create artwork in celebration of Tod’s new Sustainable Mosaic collection.
Tom Dixon x Valextra
What happens when a British designer collaborates with an Italian handbag company? Design magic! Tom Dixon created sculptural LED lights inspired by circuit boards to illuminate Valextra’s Milan master piece during supersalone 2021.
Artemest x Aqua
Working with Milanese architects Ciarmoli Queda Studio, Artemest founder and creative director Ippolita Rostagno hired Italian artisans to create pieces on the water theme. The resulting works range from literal to metaphorical and were exhibited in the fountain at the Senato Hotel Milano.
In a particularly cerebral Hervé Sauvag exhibition in La Pelota, Hermès filled large volumes with hand-embroidered rugs, a Papier-mâché chair by Studio Mumbai and wooden furniture by Jasper Morrison, among other household delights.
Armani / Home
The designer’s new collection for Armani / Casa was inspired by Armani’s life in lockdown and celebrates being outdoors and having fun at home. This included an Armani-designed barbecue set, gym accessories, a picnic tablecloth turned into a chessboard, and, of course, a bar cabinet filled with mother-of-pearl wrapped in a Japanese tatami-like cover.
Salvatori x Stephen Burks
Colored marble is finally gaining prominence after years of being dominated by white Carrara. And it was very well represented by Salvatori with mask-like mirrors by designer Stephen Burks inspired by African masks.
Bocci x Carwan Gallery
Omer Arbel from Bocci and Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte from Carwan Gallery have been friends and collaborators for years. Naturally, they decided that Bocci’s latest lighting, incredibly complex pendants, was best displayed for Supersalone exhibition.
