During the Salone del Mobile 2019, which is happening from the 9th to the14th of April at Fiera Milano, there are many Events happening simultaneously, but today, on the opening day of this top event, we would like to highlight one particular design initiative: Doppia Firma.
This is a unique project by Michelangelo Foundation and Fondazione Cologni that brings together European design innovation and the ancient tradition of exquisite craftsmanship, creating a unique collection of exclusive and refined pieces. The main goal of this event is to bring to life new creative artworks which merge contemporary design trends and authentic know-how.
During the Salone del Mobile the initiative that enhances the union between design thinking and high manufacturing will provide a unique spectacle of Luxury Design Craftsmanship and Art! This project invited the best contemporary designers and the most talented master artisans to team up and create unique and timeless masterpieces that you must admire up close if you have the chance.
