Milan - FF 2013 – Rossana Orlandi - Piet Hein Eek. From the Beams Collection Piet Hein Eek’s The Waste Beam cabinet looks like a pile of beams and has a geometric pattern, as opposed to the round trunk pattern. Continuing new insights mean that the way the body is made is a lot more elegant than the tree trunk cabinet.

Rossana Orlandi – BCXSY. Foster Collection designed by BCXSY in collaboration with Ibuki. Wooden Foster cases are made from Kitayama Sugi, a cedar that is typical of Kyoto, one of the most prestigious types of wood in Japan. Each case features a ‘slice’ of the raw, un-styled wood, paying homage to the long tradition and exclusivity of the material The case functions both as a storage place and as a stage for displaying the treasures within.

BCXSY - Foster Collection– BCXSY. The Foster ceramic pouring vessels are symmetrical in form, with two mirrored spouts on either side. The light-colored liquid clay is poured through one of the spouts before firing, and the resulting pattern is a permanent reference to the asymmetrical function of the vessel; one side for pouring, one side for holding. The spouts on the salad bowl function both as a carrying handles and useful nooks in which to rest serving utensils.
Rossana Orlandi – Bokja. Bokja’s The Migration Collection references a world and its people forever on the move. Inspired by a legacy as old as time. Bokja addresses the phenomena of putting your family and possessions on the move, in search of a new place to call home. The pieces themselves become bundles of dreams and hopes portrayed in embroideries and fabrics with a tender rawness to the materials and emotions behind them.
Above. The Migration sofa is much more than a piece of furniture; it embodies the concept of migration and travel. The sofa appears to carry a burden of rolled up rugs and bedding on its ‘back’ and the drawer at the base evokes a suitcase full of clothes. The ‘wings’ on each side are flexible and can flap in and out, like a bird on the wing or the rudder of a plane or ship!

Rossana Orlandi – Tete De Bois. “The idea came up while working on furniture mock up. Handling and cutting some wooden laths and washers, and getting inspiration from the architectural element of brise soleil, the aim was to try and design, with the help of a string, a curved shape. Here came the intuition to apply this concept to create an absolutely original headwear. A comfortable and adjustable piece of art to wear, resulting from the combination of industrial design, architecture and fashion design. Entirely conceived, developed and produced in Italy.” Andrea Deppieri.
