An avant-garde and bold design that definitely doesn’t pass unnoticed. Last year in Milan Design Week, the designer presented two stunning projects raising awareness to sustainability – Ro Plastic Price adn Guiltless Plastic.
After working in the fashion world for over 20 years, Rossana Orlandi took the risk of changing her path and started a career in design. When she decided to open her gallery in 2002, she was just “buying stupid things” to fill up the space. But it all changed when she discovered Sebastian Wrong, the designer of ‘Spun Light’, produced by Flos.
The gallery’s first installation had an enormous success thanks to the support of friends, design magazines and schools. “It has been super exciting since the beginning because designers started welcoming me with an enormous passion”, says Rossana.
“I call my space ‘the all design’, because every talent is well accepted and welcome to join our family.”– Rossana Orlandi
