Design and architecture studio, DAAA HAUS was present at Milan Design Week 2023, with its Design Talks at Carbon, its new and discreet hub in Corso Monforte.
Inaugurated just a month before this year’s Salone del Mobile, Carbon is a space that brings the design, art and architecture associates that form DAAA Haus together with other like-minded artisans, artists and Italian furniture and finishes companies to showcase their crafts.
Founded in Malta by creative director Keith Pillow in 2009, the studio has since grown internationally, spreading also to Ragusa and Mumbai and involving 30 professionals in the field.
Its Milano branch, Carbon, includes a number of collaborations such as the HERA collection and other bespoke design pieces developed with Palladio Concepts; the Convergence Collection, an exclusive handwoven carpet collection from India; Sorgi, a unique decorative design piece made from upcycled construction waste; a range of indoor and outdoor chairs by Alma; and more innovative boutique firms like Broken Bottle from London.
During this year’s edition of Milan Design Week, the founder and partners of DAAA Haus met with the press, artisans, collaborating partners, clients and colleagues within the industry to debate the subject of sustainable design.
“The aim is to start a movement of change with all those interested to invest in this subject, including clients eager to engage in a more sustainable future,” they said.
For the occasion, a new outdoor lounge area was also set up in the courtyard of Palazzo Cicogna, an authentic Milanese building, considered to be one of the most well-kept secrets in Milan.
Visitors could enjoy the beauty of this casa dei nobile building – the ideal setting for the talks, away from the chaos of the busy Durini Design District.
