Conversation from Milan during design week
Me: Can you suggest somewhere good to eat around here (in the design precinct Zona Tortona)?
Design fetishist: Sure Go down via Savona, past the garden full of Dedon furniture, and turn right.
‘Dark Matter’ by Wyssem and Cécile Nochi. The blackest and most humorous display around, the signature piece of this display of sculptural objects is a biodegradable, 100 percent cashmere body bag, also conveniently available in reusable acrylic.
“We are all dark matter,” Lebanese designer Wyssem Nochi told me, in an intense fashion. “And when we decompose, what’s left becomes human consciousness.” Wins points for the most original conversation at Milan ‘09. http://www.wyssemnochi.com/
