During Milan Design Week we caught with one half of the nobody&co duo Alisée Matta to go through their latest thought provoking collection that they were displaying within a private garden space in the centre of the city.

The private garden which dated back to the 1800s in the centre of the city was 2000 square meters with 49 different tree species, including specimens of European beech, magnolia, white elm, ailanthus (known as tree of heaven), deodar cedar, and sycamore. Various bird species are hidden amidst the treetops and the shrubs: kestrel, common swift, chaffinch, house sparrow, robin, great tit, jackdaw. A secret paradise in which to rediscover the beauty of nature, an oasis in which to linger, taking a break from the frenetic pace of the city.

In this setting, Nobody&co., from 4th to 9th April 2017 presented its new collection. The installation is by Studio Toogood, which has designed the Follies, small “extravagant” architectural structures in vogue in English gardens in the 18th century. Inside them, visitors are invited to view five new projects by Nobody&co.:
Pet Table, Relog, Missing Ocean, Missing Summer, Uphill and the Sliced Piola.
The “Wild Bakery” is a creation of Arabeschi di Latte and Vermouth Aperitivo by OSCAR.697.
