me and robert andriessen from received an invitation for a cosy lunch from fancy van de vorst , account manager creative industry eindhoven, at spazio rossana orlandi, a prestigious design studio in the center of milan.

lovely women served delicious pasta for a good cause. and after all I had the chance to do a quick interview with lidewij edelkoort, dutch trend forecaster and curator of the ‘talent milano’ exhibition about the idea to bring the exhibition to milan design week.
