Milan Design Week always guarantees a little something new and fantastic—and the 21 rising and established creators showcased in “Baranzate Ateliers” stole the display for 2022.

Sharing the fees and sleeping (in a trim row of parked camper vans), feeding on, and partying at the evenly spruced-up derelict place together with Galerie Philia (which offered a selection by Studiopepe), Everyday Gallery, Modern Designs, Ben Storms, Atelier Serruys, Mircea Anghel, and Bela Silva, Zaventem Ateliers unveiled a wild abundance of innovative collectible layout, partitioned by billowy parachute fabric and framed by uncovered concrete and massive windows. Plastic was thrown more than the roof for protection from the rain. “A enormous local community or loved ones of designers is additional effective than doing work alone in a workshop for the reason that we share and make collaborations,” Jadot explains.

Checking out the notion of religion in the record of objects, the series consists of tables, chairs, a console, a mirror, and a lamp.
