In addition to present its new lighting products and collaborating with the Association of Architects of Milan in several shared activities, Santa & Cole aims to invite people to discover the best design route through public transport06/04/2011
Santa & Cole is participating once again in Milan Design Week, collaborating this time with the Association of Architects of Milan in the development of some shared activities (see agenda). On this occasion, Santa & Cole is moreover making an original proposal, inviting people to discover the best design route around Milan using public transport, in particular the number 94 bus, which goes past the most interesting enclaves of the world design capital: from the showroom of Santa & Cole to the Association of Architects of Milan, and including La Triennale di Milano Design Museum, the Achille Castiglioni studio-museum, the Spazio Rossana Orlandi, the Fabbrica di vapore and the Spazio Crizia, which will house the always extraordinary new products of the designer Ingo Maurer.
Five minutes from the 94 bus stop at the crossroads of Corso Italia and Via Santa Sofía, Santa & Cole’s headquarters in Milan opens its doors to present the new lighting products from its Indoor catalogue. Three families of lamps by Antoni Arola designed starting from LED light technology together with the definitive edition of the mythical TMC lamp (1961) by Miguel Milá, now celebrating its fiftieth anniversary. Guaranteed hospitality for the weary traveller, drink and conversation. And on 16 April, Santa & Cole’s showroom will host the Bloody Mary Closing Party. Good design, good company and good music: the best choice to conclude one of the most intense weeks of the year.
In the Association of Architects of Milan, the young landscape architect Elena Comincioli and Santa & Cole transform its entrance into a wild garden, in which to have a little rest and a glass of wine before participating in the different activities organized by “The House of the Milanese Architects”.
Inside it, Santa & Cole lights up the photography exhibition “Oltre un rettangolo di cielo”, by Giulio Minoletti, organized by Maria Cristina Loi and Elena Triunveri, and organizes the “Serata Santa & Cole all’Ordine degli Architetti”, in which Javier Nieto Santa, Chairman of the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and Chairman of Santa & Cole, and Giovanni Cutolo, Chairman of the ADI Foundation, will present the discussion Person – City – Planet: The harmony between the different states of modernity. After the “serata”, it will also be possible to enjoy a glass of wine and a performance by the jazz band Miinoans.
