LLADRÓ AT MILAN DESIGN WEEK
Milan Design Week, the world’s most important design event, commemorated its 60th anniversary with a wealth of events brought by commercial sponsors and luxury household names, celebrating this milestone with four key values: quality, innovation, beauty and sustainability. The creative director of Lladró,Nieves Contreras, took part in the opening of the cycle of sustainability meetings at the University of Milan and was inspired by the idea of a new lifestyle as a starting point.
Lladró was present across various spaces at the Salone del Mobile furniture fair. The spectacular Sunrise chandelier from the Seasons collection, inspired by Art Deco and the colors of nature, was a feature of the Bergomi and Interni spaces, this last one at the University of Milan. At Mariani Design, a space dedicated to innovation and design, Lladró presented some of its latest collections including Face2Face, Firefly by Olga Hanono, The Guest, and Nightbloom created in collaboration with the celebrated designer Marcel Wanders. Among the exclusive creations available in the Koket space were pieces inspired by oriental traditions, such as the limited edition High Porcelain sculpture Japan Kabuki.
Additionally, the Ivy & Seed chandelier collection illuminated the Koket and Duistt spaces. Belle the Nuit, a highlight of Lladró’s lighting collections, featured in the Hurtado space, inspired by the Mediterranean essence of the city of Valencia. The brand Boca do Lobo, with its commitment to traditional craftsmanship and sustainable beauty, demonstrated the Light & Scent collection in which aromas and lighting combine. Finally, Lladró presented contemporary porcelain creations including BoldBlack and Nightbloom at Archiproducts, the emblematic networking space for designers and architects. Within the framework of the Salone, an event was held at the Mariani showroom with the idea of mixing design and fashion, in a setting inspired by nature where the Lladró creations not only provided decoration but also a wild context.
