COS at Milan Design Week 2018

Trust me, you’ve never seen Italy’s historical palaces from this angle. Precisely from an infinite number of dynamic perspectives reflected by 24 carefully-angled mirrored panels.

This past week the Milan Design Week 2018 is invading the whole city. For this occasion, COS a popular clothing brand, presented an atmospheric large-scale sculptural installation known as “Open Sky”. Realized by the American artist, Phillip K. Smith III the sculptural work of art emerged in the patio of the historical Palazzo Isimbardi dating back to the XVI century.

It is surprising how the 24 mirrors have transformed the perception of the historical place, providing a completely new vision of the old architecture – there is always a different way to view known things!
