Indeed, we’re talking the Salone del Mobile, and scattered around town are venues where the very latest from the world of design is presented in many forms. Obviously, it’s an opportunity for brands to gain the global limelight, affiliating themselves with top talent from various disciplines and industries. Swedish apparel brand COS is once again present in the northern Italian city, and this time it’s showcasing an installation by American artist Phillip K. Smith III.

Set up at the inner courtyard of Palazzo Isimbardi, an ornate 15th century residence in the heart of the city, the aptly named Open Sky installation creates a spatiotemporal experience for visitors, utilizing light, space, colour, and also the changing environment as a medium. upon entering the courtyard, the architectural form of the installation invites visitors to explore a setting that appears to alter all the time [on through Apr 22]. Location: Palazzo Isimbardi, Corso Monforte 35 (Porta Monforte).
