OUT AND ABOUT IN MILAN
Design, art, fashion, food: Salone del Mobile (the annual furniture fair in Milan) and its satellite events offer the perfect opportunity to discover Milan and all of the interesting locales it has to offer. Here are a few suggestions on how to have a unique and original experience during one of the most exciting weeks of the year – and more importantly, what to wear.
A Bistrot Breakfast
In the heart of the up-and-coming Isola area of the city, you'll find Les Pommes - a charming bistrot inspired by the iconic French locales where you can enjoy breakfast or brunch surrounded by a minimalist vintage decor. Perfect for starting off your Milan Design Week days on the right foot.
Les Pommes - Via Pastrengo, 7
Business and Pleasure
Light snacks, creative dishes and cocktails served poolside - what better way to end a long day at Design Week? Discover the exclusive rooftop terrace of Hotel Viu, which also offers a truly breathtaking view of the Milanese skyline.

In Search of Inspiration
Over time, Spazio Rossana Orlandi has become a cult destination for artists and designers from all over the world, as much for the charm of the space/garden and the objects sold within as for the creative energy of the famously bespectacled owner, who is a constant fixture on the design and fashion scenes.
