The Handmade Exhibition

About the same time as we first hit on the idea of a Handmade issue, our friends at Brioni suggested joining forces during Milan's Salone del Mobile. They had the perfect venue - their beautiful palazzo in Via Gesù - and, since Brioni exemplifies the notion of Handmade, it made perfect sense to use at is the stage for our 'Wallpaper* Handmade... in Italy' exhibition.

Take a look around the exhibition

Wallpaper* took over four floors of the palazzo with its specially commissioned furniture, fashion, foodstuffs and more - a delicious taster of what was to come in the August issue of the magazine (now on the shelves). Here, we step inside the doors of the Brioni house and take a look around the groundbreaking show.
