Design Talent: The Ladies' Room
Discover The Ladies’ Room: a collaborative project founded by Ilaria Bianchi, Agustina Bottoni, Astrid Luglio and Sara Ricciardi. The collective explores the world of contemporary design by creating unique artifacts and sensorial experiences with an unmistakable feminine twist.
The Ladies’ Room collective takes its first step into the world of design at Salone del Mobile 2017 in Milan with the Fenoména exhibition: a sensorial installation which involves all five senses. Phenomenalism is a philosophic theory in which physical objects do not exist as things in themselves but only as a perceptual phenomenon situated in time and space. The deep attention to sensorial design is a leitmotiv in the Ladies's Room production, also seen in the multisensory and intimate feel of their In Itinere exhibition:
