COS is bringing an awe-inspiring, architectural-scale installation by artist phillip k. smith III to milan design week this year. ‘open sky’ is a site-specific work devised specifically for the 16th century palazzo isimbardi which it inhabits, and comprises a reflective, semi-circular form.
designboom is excited to collaborate with COS for the second year by co-hosting an evening in conversation with american artist phillip k. smith III. the event will be hosted by designboom editor kieron marchese at palazzo isimbardi — corso monforte, 35 — on thursday april 19 from 6:30pm – 8:00pm, and will also be streamed live on designboom’s facebook. guests will have the chance to experience the installation during a drinks reception, and pose their questions to the artist during a Q&A session with the audience.
the event is free and open to the public! however, as there is limited space available, registration will close automatically once we reach 250 RSVPs. after entering your details below, you will receive an email requiring you to complete your registration. guests will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. remember to bring ID if you would like to enjoy a drink with us.
