Sustainability and Nomadism at Alcova [Milan Design Week 19]

After last year’s success, Alcova did it again this year for Milan Design Week with a stunning abandoned space who was the former panettone factory in Via Popoli Uniti. The platform for independent designers developed by Space Caviar and Studio Vedèt introduced 30 installations that talk about sustainability, materials, sociability and nomadism.

From the young Panter & Tourron with their collection of very light furnishings, to the carpets by Sabine Marcelis for Carpet Sign, to the lamps poised between science and spirituality by Gio Tirotto for Secondome Gallery.

The even had a coffee shop this year: Café Populaire, located in one of the central spaces, designed and produced by Lambert & Fils and DWA Design Studio: inviting everyone to eat, sit and relax for a moment.
