The Best Thing We Saw in Milan Today, Day 1

Sight Unseen is on the ground at the Milan Furniture Fair this week and we’ll be bringing you loads of coverage next week, plus moment-by-moment roundups on our Instagram Stories. But until our rounds here are done, we’ll be featuring quick hits from some of our favorite things that caught our eye. One of the first projects we saw this week was a new collection by Bloc Studios, for which the Carrara-based studio collaborated with three of our favorite designers: Odd Matter, whose waxy, fleshlike Fat Rolls vases recall skin and the human form; Federica Elmo, who riffs on a formerly industrially produced table of her own design, here finishing the marble with a 3D digital liquid painting; and Studiopepe, whose collection includes four objects that can be joined together, inspired by “elective affinities.” See them on view this week at Alcova Sassetti, Via Sassetti 31.
