Fashion x Design: A Love Story
04/02/2019 - COS returns to Milan Design Week with a digitally fabricated architectural installation by French architect Arthur Mamou-Mani. The exhibition marks the London-based fashion brand’s eighth consecutive installation during Salone del Mobile and its first collaboration with Mamou-Mani. The collaboration is an organic fusion of visionary philosophies and outlooks on the essence and purpose of fashion and design. COS x Mamou-Mani @ Salone del Mobile 2019. Ph. courtesy of COS

The installation bridges architecture and the natural world transporting the visitor from the 16th-century courtyard of Palazzo Isimbardi to the surrounding garden. Through this ethereal journey, Mamou-Mani imagines the future of design, technology and material innovation: ‘Our work delves into the architect as maker and the holistic nature of design processes'.

'I hope that the combination of distributed large-scale 3D printing with bio-materials and open-source parametric tool will offer an insight into the future and showcase how this digital craft can have a positive impact on the world’. The designer’s algorithmic process ensures structural suitability and optimizes the use of material.

Karin Gustafsson, Creative Director of COS, commented: ‘At COS, we are inspired by the way Mamou-Mani’s work opens up new opportunities in design. The considered use of renewable materials and technology develop a new language which is futuristic, yet reminiscent of traditional craftmanship.’
 
The installation will be open to the public from 9th – 14th April, 2019 at Palazzo Isimbardi, Milan. Mamou-Mani’s exhibition CODE BUILDER, A Robotic Choreography is on at London’s John Soane’s Museum until 3rd Feb 2019.
