MILAN DESIGN WEEK : WHERE TO FIND US !
Paradigm exhibition – Chez Nina – I Segni del tempo
1. Paradigm, Fabrica x la Maison Pierre Frey The exhibition
Paradigm, conceived by Sam Baron and the designers of FABRICA,* offers a visual journey through a series of installations questioning the role of the image in the process of contemporary design, blurring the boundaries between the object and its representation, creating a space where the object is the image, and image is the object. The event takes place in Ventura Stazione, renowned for its visionary selections beside the traditional frame of the furniture fair, displaying the renewal of contemporary design and new ways of expression. The space also hosts international figures such as the dutch Li Edelkoort or the American magazine Surface.
*the Italian research centre created by Benetton and considered as one of the principal homes for young contemporary creatives

«Velvet is one of the only fabrics that not only has a very sensual touch, but also allows bright and deep colouring. With this collection, I wanted to bring an embracing and joyful dimension – which my work has always been about.» India Mahdavi
