It is a truth rarely acknowledged, but life – and design – are better with ice cream. To that end, Hem are hosting Ice Cream Socials inspired by Max Lamb’s new ‘Last Stool Splatter’. Serving up four custom gelato flavours by Gelateria Rigoletto (one to match each stool style), the socials will be hosted by different Hem collaborators, including Philippe Malouin, Karoline Fesser and Studio DeFORM.
12–15 April; Accapiu (H+), via Varese 12, 20121; www.hem.com
