The presentation by the brand Magis was one of our favorites at the Salone del Mobile 2018 furniture fair in Milan. We, at Mimi Berlin, are always drawn to the designs produced by Magis, but this time it wasn’t so much the chairs, stools and tables we liked; it was the stand-design itself we favored. Huge classisistic columns, embellished with perspex and metal cubes in brown/orange/pink tones, stood in the middle of the large and open space, which ended at a wall wich had several fake arcs in it. In total: a postmodern delight from the 21st century.
The D is from Driade wich presented opposite of Magis.

When we did our research later on, we read that Magis had won a Salone del Mobile.Milano Award and that: “The exhibition design project at the Salone was a product of the collaboration between the company and Note Design Studio in Stockholm.” Congratulations to both companies! Continue reading →

The second award, €3000; is ‘The Audience’s Favorite’ went to Sarah Bruylant of AMFI. The students participated to this lovely show were: Roos Boshart, Rachael Cheong, Annebel de Kok, Miro Hämäläinen, Karlijn Krijger and Ninamounah Langestraat (read more about them here lichting.nl) The winners truly deserved the prices they got, but we also rooted for Ninamounah Langestraat (Gerrit Rietveld Academy) her part of the Lichting show really stood out to us because of it’s very strong personality. Congratulations to all students; we wish you the best in your careers! xoxo Mimi
Bastian Visch wins Lichting 2014 supported by V&D. Visch graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts the Hague this year. Bastian Visch received the V&D Talent Award, he gets the chance to design a capsule collection for the Dutch Department Store V&D. He will be getting professional advice and guidance for the development and production. In the spring of 2015, the collection will be sold in a selected number of V&D stores. Wir sind gespannt, we liked his trompe l’oeil printed garments very much, and are curious how they will look after going through an actual (mass) production process.
