In a Fantastical Garden in Milan, T Magazine toasts Salone del Mobile.
Guests gathered at Villa Necchi Campiglio to celebrate the return of the design fair, at a fete with pink hors d’oeuvres and a hunt for hand-painted eggs.
On the evening of June 6, many invitees headed to the same place: a Milanese garden with a mythological feel. More specifically, it was the garden of Villa Necchi Campiglio, the Italian Rationalist home designed by the architect Piero Portaluppi, and the venue of T’s party celebrating Salone del Mobile, back again following various Covid-19-induced delays.
The fantastical elements, mostly a host of brightly colored beasts in sculpture form, came courtesy of the artist Flaminia Veronesi.
