COS are heading to a new location for its seventh Milan showcase. In the courtyard of Palazzo Isimbardi, they have invited Palm Springs-based artist Phillip K Smith to imagine a sculptural installation that is inspired by Italian Renaissance architecture and the Milan sky, while keeping in line with COS’ minimalist design dialogue. ‘Characterised by ever-changing spatial and temporal elements, every visitor’s experience of the installation will be entirely individual’ says Smith.
