LOTS OF TALK at the DAAily bar during milan design week 2022
Art Curtain by Swiss artist Douglas Mandry




It’s not only the guest list for our Live Talks program that’s impressive, however, the design of the DAAily bar itself is, too. The nature-inspired Art Curtain by Swiss artist Douglas Mandry – created in collaboration with Bally and Christian Fischbacher – covers the walls and converges with an immersive floral installation by Anne Vitchen, floral designer at the Ritz Paris. A merging of visual and olfactory sensations that will not be quickly forgotten.

The lounge has been created in collaboration with Munich-based furniture designer Stefan Diez who is presenting his new chair collections ‘Mudra’ for Brunner and ‘Plusminus’ for Vibia. The stage, meanwhile, has been developed in cooperation with Barber Osgerby from London, who will also be presenting their new ‘Alpina’ Chair for MAGIS.


Another name synonymous with the city is Patricia Urquiola, whose new chair collection ‘Nuez’ for Andreu World will also be on show, enhancing the location’s 10-meter bar. The outdoor lounge – furnished with Sebastian Herkner’s ‘Caribe’ collection for ames – is another centerpiece, an inviting outdoor space of the DAAily bar.


And speaking of getting to know new people, all the designers mentioned below will be part of our Live TALK program, and you’ll have the opportunity to get in contact for Q+A face to face at the venue.
