Milan Design Week 2022
It was a big week with even bigger collections, so here’ s a recap of everything you need to know.
First and foremost,
6 new projects by: Patricia Urquiola, Bethan Laura Wood, Mae Engelgeer, Duccio Maria Gambi, Odd Matter and Sabine Marcelis.
Outside of the showroom and stand, cc-tapis participated in collaborations all over the city:
CASSINA Details Collection by Charlotte Perriand
cc-tapis and Cassina combine artisanal expertise with contemporary design for two hand-knotted rugs conceived by pioneering architect Charlotte Perriand. 2 rugs which were designed in the 1940’s and never serially produced, they are now on display exclusively in the Cassina Milan Showroom and are available to purchase from both cc-tapis and Cassina.

Creative space Fabbrica Bini hosts the first international presentation of the nomadic Swedish feminist exhibition MISSCHIEFS, in a staging of a multilevel experience driven by women in the arts and design. For the Milan Design Week, Nelcya Chamszadeh joined MISSCHIEFS, interpreting its punk spirit with PLEASED TO MEET YOU, a tribute to women, to their primordial role in life, to their strengths, to their will, to their resilience, a declaration of love and admiration for women.
Hand Written Stories by ASPESI

A project by Gianluigi Ricuperati, with Hans Ulrich Obrist with set design by Patricia Urquiola.
Hand Written Stories turned the Milanese ASPESI showroom into a contemplative space away from the confusion of the city. Thanks to the words of the great voices of contemporary creatives shared on post-its for Hans Ulrich Obrist, and to the furnishings of the set designed by Patricia Urquiola for Glas Italia and cc-tapis, the visitor became part of a constellation of words, impressions, sensations and reflections that turned into stories, just as the name of the project suggests.
Bethan Gray presents: the Inky Dhow Collection
During the Salone del Mobile 2022, Bethan Gray invited visitors to immerse themselves into an enveloping “Inky Dhow” universe, where an installation of furniture, textiles, rugs, hand blown glass and ceramics, were on show at Rosanna Orlandi’s gallery in Milan’s Magenta district. An exhibition intended to excite and entice all the senses while demonstrating the exquisite craftsmanship and innovative techniques imbued in every piece Bethan designs.
FLORILEGIO – Ecosystem of an Interior by Cristina Celestino
