Bar Basso opening night block party

"To celebrate the first day of our show we visited Bar Basso for a few Negroni Sbagliatos. These were said to have been invented (by mistake) at this exact drinking hole in the early '70s. We were joined by hundreds of others to celebrate the first day of Salone, including artist Lee Broom, who drove his industrial delivery van all the way from East London to Milano to host a block party and lighting installation just outside the bar."

Postcard from Milan Design Week by Shilo Engelbrecht

This month at the annual Salone del Mobile in Milan, 12 leading Australian designers presented Local Design - a group show held inside the Teatro Arsenale in the 5 Vie art and design precinct. Among them was Shilo Engelbrecht; a textile artist born in Cape Town, who now divides her time between Stockholm, London and her parents' lychee farm in northern New South Wales. Here, Engelbrecht shares a glimpse of her time spent in Milan.
