This ceramic slab company presented an itinerary between land art and urban furnishings to capture the public of Design Week and lead them on a journey of sustainable design set in the heart of Brera. The tour led them into a “micro-city” dressed in a new offering of ceramic slabs titled “Sensi Pigmenti,” curated by Matteo Thun & Antonio Rodriguez. A garden, a café, a pool, a newsstand, a green grocer and a clothing store were the settings that composed the exhibit. It highlighted the original chromatic project of “Sensi Pigmenti,” a virtuous example of circular economy since it was designed with particular attention to its impact on the environment and its consumption of energy. Supportive design Adjacent to the Florim Flagship Store, the CEDIT space exhibited the capsule collection titled “Hotel Chimera” by Elena Salmistraro. The ceramic works of art consisted of 80 unique pieces, each hand-signed by the Milanese designer. The proceeds of the sale supported the project “Double Meaning: a tactile tour program at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection,” an accessible itinerary at the Venetian museum, designed particular for children with visual impairment. 57
