Milan 2013: Stone Garden by Nendo
Stylus is in Milan all week for the city’s Design Week. First stop was the Brera district where we spotted the expansive Stone Garden installation, tucked away in the Palazzo Crivelli courtyard. Around 200 small tables, each supported by a single stem, are secured by tension as they overlap to form a stone landscape.
Created by Japanese studio Nendo for Caesterstone, the design mimics a Japanese rock garden, a befitting form for the quartz surface manufacturer’s product. Nendo’s minimalist masterpieces have been increasing in numbers year on year at the event: European manufacturers apparently can't get enough of the studio’s reduced aesthetic. Expect more highlight pieces from them during the week.

Milan Design Week runs until April 14.
