Pandora Design celebrates its first 10 years of activity with Temporary Design Store, an exclusive spot in the city centre of Milan, to revive the history of companies and designers. Years pass for all, but in this case as a positive value as for Galbiati that for over 40 years works with passion glass and crystal, for Lorenz, which celebrates the well known clock Static, whose production hasn’t stopped for 50 years, for Il Coccio, an Italian brand born in the 80s now back on the market to show its energy and finally TobeUs, for only 2 years but with a powerful thought that scents as traditional wood does.
Over 200 years represented with a modern project of exhibit and retail sales dedicated to all those who not only want to watch, but also bring along a piece of design history.
“Temporary Design Store” then presents an excellent selection of over 40 items for sale including new bestsellers and big Golden Compass winners. Five big companies that are Made in Italy, showcase an exclusive selection of items and accessories from top-quality, aesthetic and functional value.
The Designers of Temporary Design Store: Mario Bellini, Andrea Branzi, Fernando Brizio, Achille Castiglioni, Culdesac, Marco Ferreri, Monica Förster, Alfredo Häberli, Giulio Iacchetti, Italo Lupi, Alberto Meda, Alessandro Mendini, Matteo Ragni, Denis Santachiara, Richard Sapper, Patricia Urquiola.
