COS teams up with Philip K. Smith for Milan Design Week 2018

Making their 7th consecutive debut at Milan Design Week, London-based fashion house COS will team up with american artist Philip K. Smith III (PKS3) to curate its annual exhibition for FuoriSalone.

This year’s installation will be a large-scale sculptural one and will be housed in Palazzo Isimbardi.
The artist, known for his light-based works that blend into their surroundings will create an installation inspired by italian renaissance architecture, the milanese sky and the understated simplicity of the cos design aesthetic.

‘My work is created in direct response to the surrounding environment, becoming a canvas that interacts with both the urban and natural landscape’, said Smith in a statement introducing the project. ‘Characterised by ever-changing spatial and temporal elements, every visitor’s experience of the installation will be entirely individual‘.


// Con il suo settimo debutto consecutivo alla Design week milanese, Cos si prepara ad inaugurare la nuova installazione creata in collaborazione con l’artista Philip K. Smith III (PKS3) all’interno di Palazzo Isimbardi.

L’artista, noto per i suoi lavori che utilizzano superfici specchianti per creare illusioni ottiche di forte impatto, creerà un’installazione ispirata all’architettura italiana rinascimentale, al cielo milanese e all’estetica sobria e raffinata tipica del marchio COS.

“Il mio lavoro è creato in diretta risposta all’ambiente circostante, diventando una tela che interagisce con il paesaggio urbano e al contempo con quello naturale. Caratterizzata da elementi spaziali e temporali in continuo cambiamento, l’esperienza di ogni visitatore sarà completamente individuale.”
