at the London
Design Festival 2011
For Bar Alto 2011 we invited Maurizio, the owner of the famous Bar Basso in Milan, to come over; partnering with Duralex, we also asked friends and designers Harry Thaler, Ally Capellino, Maria Jeglinska, Loris & Livia, Use Dev Org, Tomas Alonso, Nitzan Cohen, Lars Frideen, Chiara Onida and Michael Marriott to produce limited editions of their legendary tumbler, as well as accessories around it. Ally Capellino is launching a limited edition of the Bar Alto apron and to celebrate the opening of her new shop and our recent collaboration, there will be some surprises for our guests.
Their work will be on show and you will have the possibility to take home their productions.

Travelling from Paris Design Week, DE STIHL Camp’s idea revolves around a machine that produces steam for energy. Hot water baths and pressure cookers can initially be producing bentwood. The steam will loosen the fibers of wood to make it soft. The device goes far beyond a mere tool of production because the steam can also be used to prepare a meal as well as to power a sauna. The machine becomes a reason for making a social connection in a low-tech and slow context: we produce, we eat, we relax.
