Cross Roads: cross cultural creations

Wednesday, 5 June 2013

Curated by Italian architect Simone Micheli, this exhibition paired handmade home fabrics by Muya Ethiopia with bone china tableware and woven chairs by Italian brand Sch√∂nhuber Franchi.

Staged in Ventura Lambrate, the most experimental district during Milan Design Week, the exhibition emphasised the visual threads connecting each of the pieces: casual stripe placements, pops of bright colours on a white background, and most of all, a craft-based approach to making.
