An exhibition illustrating the many facets of the design process in a fresh selection of galleries, featuring new industrial manufacturers and self-producing designers.
Curated by Michela Pellizzari, Federica Sala and Cristina Morozzi.
On the one hand, there is Colé Italian Design Label, with its highly-experimental orientation. On the other, Tato, Roberta Licini and Daniela Vismara. Brands that, like Colè, move freely between design, research and high quality skilled artisan crafts. These are the foundations for Colé Gallery, a new model for the web based on the congruity of taste and an evident elective affinity. But also, and above all, on the sharing of spaces, layouts, communication strategy and resources. The Italian headquarters of this new experience is the showroom in Via Cesare da Sesto 11, corner Via San Calocero, Milan, Italy.
During Salone del Mobile 2015 Colé Italian Design Label will exhibit a wide range of news, which include both furniture and objects.

Inspired by 'literary salons' of the early 20th century, capable of generating vanguard through the spontaneous contamination between disciplines, we had the idea of a special evening, where the design meets the music within an outstanding framework as is the
Galleria Giacomo Manoukian Noseda, inhabited by ancient tapestries and carpets that will live in dialogue with our collections, which originate from a contemporary reinterpretation of art, tradition and craftsmanship.
Title of the event is 'The Furniture Music', the term coined by Erik Satie in 1917 to define background music played live and constituted of an indefinite number of repetitions,
composed for the inauguration of a famous Parisian gallery. At the piano outstanding Cristian Niculescu, especially coming from Berlin with a program ranging from Satie to John Cage and Philip Glass.
The publication provides an update on the
histories of design and a link between the history and the
new scenarios of Italian creativity. It is a combination of
scientific volume, essay and a taxonomy of the breed of
designers who are classified in an almost botanical style
according to six poetic definitions intended to present
current protagonists and highlight their individual details.
The key points of design during the first decade of this
century are investigated, those episodes that led to the
establishing of these unique experiences; new places for
production, education and criticism, and their crosspollination
through the Internet, plus alternative methods,
such as that of self-production. The work is completed with
the introduction by Alessandro Mendini who presents a
critical and in-depth reflection on the new generation of
Italian design for the first time.
