Valentina Cameranesi-Sgroi, best known for her strange, otherworldly vessels made from hand-formed borosilicate glass, explores new material territory in I Racconti (The Tales), her first solo exhibition with Jacqueline Sullivan Gallery (through April 13). In the dreamy showcase, the Milan-based designer’s new enameled copper vessels, crafted in Venice, and wooden boxes, made in Florence and sporting exuberant silk tassels, sit with a range of early American furnishings from Olde Hope Antiques. A scalloped-edged, enameled copper dish, for example, sits poetically next to an early-19th-century Lady’s Dressing Box, which sports a similar motif.

Meanwhile, Cameranesi-Sgroi’s painted birch and maple boxes act as modern foils to the two 19th-century decorated wood blanket chests on display. New endeavors in glass—blown freeform, this time, with artisans in the Czech Republic—make an appearance as well. With spiraling coils of glass and pearlescent sheen, their flamboyant forms feel like mysterious sea creatures, or perhaps a new riff on the historic nautilus cup.

Loro Piana Interiors updating Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret’s Chandigarh series is the collab dreams are made of

At Nomad St. Moritz last month, London collector and curator Rajan Bijlani unveiled the 41-piece collection he amassed from Chandigarh, the modernist north Indian metropolis famed for its monumental furniture range designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret between 1954 and 1966. Along with rarities like a rosewood desk and teak library table, there is plenty of seating to see—the geometric Cross office chair and sleek High Court sofa among them—all spruced up with fabrics from Milan’s Loro Piana Interiors. Cowhide, a peculiar choice of material to embrace in a country that reveres the cow, was removed to make way for more suitable alpaca, baby camel hair, and raw cashmere—a nod to the Himalayas in the distance—in such soft, earthy shades as ginger and dark brown.

Design Happenings

Of course We Are Ona makes dinner in a garage look chic

Roving culinary collective We Are Ona, the vision of Noma alum Luca Pronzato, recently landed in Los Angeles for Frieze, where it orchestrated a series of eight-course dinners in collaboration with the multidisciplinary studio Sized. The feasts, prepared by French chef Valentin Raffali of the restaurant Livingston in Marseille, were heightened not only by Pronzato’s wine pairings, but the mesmerizing industrial setting at the former Howard Hughes headquarters. Here, patrons dined in the company of 22 black cars enveloped in black fabric. The dining table, a custom design by Willo Perron and brought to life by USM Modular Furniture and Damon Jones, was set with Christofle cutlery. We Are Ona will pop up in Milan with more memorable repasts during Salone del Mobile.
