Longtime fan of Studio Swine and COS, we are very excited to see them partnering on this awesome installation for this upcoming Milan Design Week. The artistic collaboration between Japanese architect Azusa Murakami and British artist Alexander Groves gave birth to ‘New Spring’; an immersive, multi-sensory experience centered around a focal sculpture, emitting mist-filled blossoms that burst and evaporate on contact with skin but that live on momentarily when met with textured fabrics. Fun!
“we wanted to encapsulate a lifespan of emotions in an instant. To create an experience that was fleeting, but in its time evoked joy and vitality, if only to remain as a memory.”
