Salone del Mobile 2022: Walter Knoll goes Brera

In June 2022, we will finally be back at Salone del Mobile in Milan. In a new location, with an exciting experience space. We are delighted to welcome you for a walk through our Rimessa dei Fiori.

Be inspired by a walk through our Rimessa dei Fiori

In 2022, Walter Knoll is breaking new ground: for the first time, we are presenting at a new central location in Brera. New products, materials, colors - our installation showcases an immersive sculpture of American artist Janet Echelman, as well as a poetic floral setting by florist Irene Cuzzaniti.

 

 

Artwork by Janet Echelman

Experience a fascinating space-defining sculpture by renowned artist Janet Echelman. The American creates billowing sculpture engineered to the scale of buildings, choreographed by wind and light, that shifts from being an object you look at, to a living environment you can get lost in.

 

 

From architecture, urban design to material science, computer science and structural as well as aeronautical engineering – using unlikely materials from fishnet to atomized water particles, Echelman combines ancient craft with original computational design software to create artworks that have become focal points for urban life on four continents.
Echelman was named an Architectural Digest Innovator for "changing the very essence of urban spaces."

Flower Art by Irene Cuzzaniti

The Milanese florist transforms the Rimessa dei Fiori with a poetic floral setting. Irene Cuzzaniti works with her Studio irene with plants and flowers to convey a delicate and essential aesthetic, employing synthesis and dynamism as main working tools. Her floral compositions are influenced by the observation of nature, art and design. Flowers inspire her constantly and offer her endless teaching – she regards them as one of the most perfect form of truth and tenderness.
