Mikiya Kobayashi, Designer and Director

Tokyo’s Mikiya Kobayashi has been connecting cultural legacy and sustainability since establishing his studio in 2006.

James Coviello has an insatiable interest in 19th-century decorative arts, and his fashion label – launched in 2003 – was heavily influenced by the Edwardian era. Coviello’s enthusiasm for folklore-style spills into all of his creative outlets – the biggest being the 1840s Greek Revival house he bought over two decades ago. His digital diary showcases his fascination with vintage finds and documents the fruits of his renovation.

Two Mallorcan sisters, Claudia and Isabella Del Olmo, joined forces with their best friend Cécile Denis to renovate their childhood home into an experiential guest house for creatives. Casa Balandra’s light-flooded spaces feature heavy stone walls, palm-shaded gardens and a warm, inviting nature that encourages both digital and physical visitors to embrace slowness.

Though he passed away in 2007, Austro-Italian maverick Ettore Sottsass’s pioneering postmodern furniture, lighting, architecture and jewellery continue to shape the contemporary design scene. Regardless of the project, he expressed that ‘functionalism is not enough’, but that designs should be sensual and exciting. This homage account is run by Raquel Cayre, a furniture advisor, collector and curator from New York, and celebrates all things Sottsass – a visual feast for all Memphis Milano fans.
