In this 1920s Milan apartment, a saffron-hued chair by 21st-century designer William Sawaya takes center stage. Other than the theoretical approach of the Bauhaus School in Germany or the marketing and profit-oriented design view of the Americans, the Italian design lasted long especially due to its experimenting propensity, the improvisation acquirement of small craft business and the old cultural tradition, which did not want to separate beauty from function.
The rest of the show presents pieces from hundreds of different female designers throughout Italian history—navigating the installation as a river, or a timeline, that begins in the late nineteenth century and ends with bold works of the present day.
So, the Pink Dog barks at good design and he likes discovering new designs, matching new colours, scouting trends, wandering around new cities, peeking into someone elses’s homes (may be an eclectic, a Scandi, a minimal one..), he loves being surprised of new small things and looking through a lens (its iphone one).
