Milan Designweek 2018 Japan Creative ABCD Elements

ABCD Elements

‘Japan Creative’ (JC for short) has 3 new projects on show in Milan during Designweek 2018. The one we really like, is named JC21 a.k.a. the ABCD Elements. These soft seaters are the result of the collaboration between Japanese craftsman TAKEYARI and British designer Faye Toogood. Not only is this design very stunning, it is also a sustainable one, ànd witty! There is a 70’s feel to them, but it isn’t overpowering; the ABCD Elements are designs which have the easy-going and friendly vibe from the 1970s. At least that’s how we, at Mimi Berlin, feel about this design.

These stunning seaters, or cushions, can be seen until the 22nd of April, 2018 at Palazzo Litta on the Corso Magenta 24 in Milan.

The Granny Alphabet

The Granny Alphabet
The Granny AlphabetTim Walker brings his unique brand of very British fantasia to a subject close to all our hearts: grandmothers. The first volume of this very special twinset offers a collection of characterful photographs of grannies and the things nearest to each of them, arranged alphabetically and accompanied by short, gently humorous verses by Kit Hesketh-Harvey. The second volume has Lawrence Mynott’s drawings of lively old ladies. You’ll find Lucinda, whose hat addiction shows no sign of waning, and Kitty, whose knitting skills are second to none.
