Salone del Mobile 2017
Over the roofs of Milan
Super mood among the 100-plus guests on the roof terrace of the Hotel Il Duca on Piazza Repubblica. The spectacular view of the new architecture of the Porta Nuova and brilliant weather, exciting conversations over an Apérol-Spritz and mini-burgers, a lot of enthusiastic acclaim for Cecilie Manz’s new collection for Gloster, which is as elegant as it is versatile. Well away from the hustle and bustle of the fair and the countless events at the Fuorisalone, here the emphasis was not on seeing and being seen but on slowing down, and getting into deep conversation. Architects, interior architects, designers, journalists – both young and old, renowned and up-and-coming – they had all taken up Gloster and Stylepark’s invitation and clearly felt at home: as the pictures show.
