Fuori Salone - Spazio Rossana Orlandi. Rossana Orlandi takes a break from her busy schedule and jots down little notes to herself. Her concept store is one of the most fascinating places in Milan. A mixture of old and new; fashion, design and furniture co-exist side by side, they have one common denominator, they are special, curious and sometimes slightly bizarre. She has an incredible eye and is a great talent scout. Here, she wears a coat that she designed herself and a "rope" necklace by Bless. She is sitting on Charles Kaisin's Newspaper Extendable Bench, a limited series of 50 pieces. Kaisin, is a graduate of The Royal College of Arts and a professor at the Saint Luc Institute in Brussels. The designer has an ecological approach to his designs and his concept is to reuse old newspapers in a very visual way that makes people aware and respectful of environmental issues.
