Impression of the group exhibition ‘Autofficina‘ at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. The exhibition took place in a former car garage in the new design area Ventura Lambrate. The character of the old design district of Zona Tortona has changed over the years and Ventura Lambrate provides cutting edge exhibitions again with a focus on content. The first edition has been a  huge succes.

Undercover Beauty

April 1, 2010

China is one of the main producers of cheap laminated chip wood furniture. It is also the country of the delicate Peony flower, a national symbol. It is a product that takes time and care to produce and is a luxury product. Undercover Beauty by Dutch designer Willem de Ridder combines both icons resulting in a rich and honest new product. The engraved flower shows the beauty of a cheap construction. It will be presented as part of the ‘Autofficina‘ exhibition in Ventura Lambrate.
