Marni Market Playland in Milano

Marni Market Playland in Milano

We, at Mimi Berlin, didn’t attend the Salone del Mobile 2017 this year because we missed our flight. But that you now by now, if you follow our blog….. Well, this week we will be posting about venues, designs and other places we feel we really missed out on. Being the Fashion Angels that we are we feel sorry for missing Marni‘s Playland installation. Luckily there are lot’s of pictures, gif’s and what have you not, on the interweb. And Marni also created a mini-market online for us to buy stuff from. Like the bag pictured below; which is actually a ‘Maxi geometric vase holder’ or a “trapeze-shaped-PVC- Artefact-product-with-possible-mperfections”; LOL!


“On the occasion of Milan 2017 Salone del Mobile, Marni will be transforming its space at Viale Umbria 42 into one big playground: MARNI PLAYLAND.
Reflecting on the concept of play, Marni invites the public to forget predefined rules and structures and interact with the surrounding space and the intriguing elements it contains. The MARNI PLAYLAND is a stretch of sand which is the perfect backdrop for a series of extraordinary objects and furniture sculptures that have cast practicality aside to embrace their playful side, leaving them open to interpretation.” (read more marni.com)

Hans Peter Feldmann Shoes High Heels

Hans Peter Feldmann Shoes High Heels

“Hans-Peter Feldmann (born 1941 in Düsseldorf) is a German visual artist. Feldmann’s approach to art-making is one of collecting, ordering and re-presenting.” In this case Mr Feldmann has been lining up colorful high heeld shoes (Pumps). Nice! N’est pas?

FriendsWithYou

Friends with You

FriendsWithYou  is the fine art collaborative of Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, working collectively since 2002 with the sole purpose of spreading the positive message of Magic, Luck, and Friendship™. As artists working in a variety of mediums, including paintings, sculpture, large-scale experiential installations, public playgrounds, published works and live performances, FriendsWithYou’s mission is to affect world culture by cultivating special moments of spiritual awareness and powerful, joyous interaction.

FriendsWithYou x Lladro. This series of ornaments symbolizes peace and the ideal of the purity of the spirit. Mixing simplified shapes and vibrant colors, our aim with this collection is to warm the hearts of all who come in contact with these pieces. Built on a visual staple of the ornament as it has been traditionally experienced, our goal was to bake in the idea of animism, giving each toy-like piece a soul.

FriendsWithYou created a line of wishing amulets for the world called Wish Come True in 2008. These toys were created with the idea to empower all users with the magic of ritual and wishing. This concept was the first in many projects with the idea to make everyones wish come true simply by willing them. (all images courtesy of the artists)
