A garden in the city

I fell in love with this “Fuori Salone” installation during the Design week in Milan.

You may not know but during the week and many times during the whole month every available space, like former factories, former garages, warehouses in Milan is rented by various Companies to exhibit the latest creations for interior design (in this case I would say exterior design…) so it was only natural to walk around in Zona Tortona and suddenly enter this magic space where nature was prevailing.

The chairs may not be functional but surely they are like sculptures and can add flair to every space outdoor.

A greenhouse full of charme.

Furniture, Art or Nature? Look at this beautiful use of Ivy freely (or not so?) climbing on
 iron table and chairs.

You may recall this picture from a previous post, it is only a small portion of the whole sign of the installation on the street side.

Inside we found other surprises, like this old weaving loom.

and vegetables, seeds, plants, everything to stay in touch with our mother Nature.

A few doors away another green discover, a great vertical wall.

An unusual mirror reflecting the vertical arrangement of plants.

A relaxing hour spent in a very green, in every sense, environment.
