Milan Design Week – Top Pick

In celebration of the Salone, fashion brand COS have partnered up with architect Sou Fujimoto to create ‘Forest of Light.’ We aren’t in Milan this yea- MASSIVE BOO-  but we keep checking Twitter and Icon magazine’s website to see what their top picks are!

cos

Taking inspiration from the COS Spring Summer 2016 collection, ‘Forest of Light’ explores ideas of interaction and perspective; the darkened space is illuminated by cones of light that are designed to respond to visitors’ movements. Specially-composed sounds, subtle fog and mirrored walls create an immersive, infinite landscape where the conical spotlights become abstracted trees in a shifting forest of light.

cosBuilt in the 1930s by Italian architect Mario Cereghini, the installation is located in Cinema Arti in Milan’s San Babila district. A former theatre, the now derelict venue has inspired the key aspects of Sou Fujimoto’s design and provides an expansive backdrop to the installation.

cosCOS has been inspired by the work of Sou Fujimoto for many years. Often focusing on negative space and the concept of bringing the outside in, some of Fujimoto’s most well known architectural projects such as the 2013 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion blur the parameters of space, with edges dissolving into their surrounding environment.
