On the occasion of the 2019 Salone del Mobile, the students of Creative Academy, the Milan-based international design school of the Richemont Group, are working on the universal theme of secrets.
The exhibition is entitled "UNREVEALED | Shaping secrets" and is open to the public in the iGuzzini area in Brera.
This year, the students have been tackling wood and plaster, in a dialogue with outstanding Masters: Master cabinetmaker Giordano Viganò and Mario Dossi and Roberto Fumagalli from Gipsoteca Fumagalli&Dossi.
The 20 young designers from Creative Academy, originating from many different countries, have interpreted the evocative theme of secrets, suggested by Van Cleef & Arpels, the historical high-end jewellery Maison supporting the project, in a novel, personal way, viewing them through the filter of their different cultural backgrounds.
An important, highly inspiring test, leading them to confront matter and meet the manual know-how of great artisans endowed with great savoir-faire, who offered their skills and creativity to support the project, also relying, as every year, on a collaboration with Fondazione Cologni
