During Design Week, fashion, art and design converge. In this extremely eclectic scenario, rich in creativity, sharing, interconnection and fusion reign. That’s what happens when jewelry collections find their home in some of the most iconic spots in Milan, from the most historic to the most innovative and urban. It also happens that some places traditionally dedicated to jewelry transform into fascinating backdrops for furniture shows and special events.
Against the evocative backdrop of a jewelry-making workshop, three goldsmiths, a ceramist and an illustrator show off their talent, creativity and a passion for their work. The common approach of the five artists shows in the work as well, which is marked by constant artistic exploration and the use of strictly handmade techniques.Via Vigevano 4 (In the picture MPjewelsmilano.)
