With new districts popping up on an annual basis, the list of who and what to see grows ever more unwieldy as each year passes. That’s where we come in.

Designers Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin of studio Formafantasma celebrate ten years of design with a special exhibition chronicling their light works. Housed in Spazio Krizia, one of Fuorisalone’s first locations and re-opened after several years of inactivity, the show will include their minimal lamps, crafted in metal and lava stone and featuring reflections and colour. The design duo also partners with lighting brand Flos, which will launch two new lamp designs by Formafantasma this year.
