Milano Design Week 2022: Pardgroup’s photo reportage

Fuorisalone returns to Milan: discover our photo reportage.

Milano Design Week is definitely the world’s most important design event. Besides the Salone del Mobile furniture fair (that took place at the Fiera Milano exhibition centre from the 7th to the 12th of June 2022), also this year the Fuorisalone played the important role to turn design and some of the leading brands active in the sector into the real protagonists of the event – featuring hundreds of shows, installations, performances and exhibitions across the city’s design districts.

The theme of this year’s edition of Fuorisalone was “Between Space and Time”: an invitation to reflect on the major changes happening in the world today, in order to achieve sustainability goals and a collective vision toward global recovery.

Pardgroup was actively involved in the activities of the Fuorisalone: we teamed up with our clients to set up several installations but we also enjoyed the unique atmosphere that the Design Week always brings to Milan.

Here is a short photo reportage of what we enjoyed the most!


@La Pelota Jaialai, Via Palermo 10

Floating Forest by Timberland

A multi-sensory Floating Forest made as an independent ecosystem on the waters of the Darsena to create a greener city. The installation consisted in a green graft conceived as an ecosystem with 610 plants and 30 different species.

@Palazzo Isimbardi, Corso Monforte 35

Anderson and the Maison explored the Galician straw-weaving tradition known as “Coroza” and the Korean technique of paper weaving known as Jiseung.

The project revolved around the concept of giving a second life to all those objects and materials that may have been forgotten or discarded by transforming them into baskets, handbags, canisters, cribs, vases, and storage.

The Contemporary Caryatids by Olimpia Zagnoli

@Circolo Filologico Milanese, Via Clerici 10

KOHLER x Arsham: Divided Layers

@Palazzo Senato, Via Senato 10

“Divided Layers” is a site-specific installation built upon the duo’s release of Rock.01 – a 3D printed sink Daniel Arsham designed in collaboration with Kohler. The installation consisted in a large-scale immersive art experience made of a series of stacked panels combined to form a walkable tunnel. A pond acting as a mirrored surface doubled and reflected the opening of the cavernous volume, contributing to create a sense of movement and flow.
