The highly anticipated and reimagined 2021 event returns to inspire us in the form of Supersalone, a week of design innovation and highlights. In part one of our coverage, Stylecraft’s brands Arper and Artemide, unveil previews of new releases.
The Latest from Arper
Arper's approach has always been motivated by relationships: between products and spaces, spaces and people, people and their networks. As we meet Arper again at Supersalone, their main theme investigates new ways of meeting and sharing spaces.
(Re)new Together aims to stimulate a reflection on relationships in all shapes and forms, and on how they are changing. Their new collections are designed with sustainability in mind, and represent a commitment to production processes for recycling and reuse.
