A wonderland installation


Segno Italiano at Antonio Marras

By Ambra Medda

On our first day in Milan, we stopped by Circolo Marras, Sardinian fashion designer Antonio Marras's wonderland shop and exhibition space. Almost like stepping out of the city and into an enchanted forest, Marras's stunning space is covered in hanging wisteria, his gorgeous fashion, and fairytale-like vignettes.

For Salone, Marras is hosting Segno Italiano*, a young, fantastic, Milan-based trio who specialize in modern manufacturing of traditional, Italian artisan pieces—ceramics, cookware, furniture, and more. Bringing fashion and design together in one poetic, magical space, the installation reinforces just how exceptional both collaborators are as craftsmen and storytellers. Inspired by Loredana Berté's hit 80s song, Volo Planare, Marras and Segno Italiano set up a theatrical dinner scene for the week, complete with charming, ceramic entrees and dramatic guests. A wonderful way to start the week off!
