Milan

Salone 2014: check. We came, we saw, we conquered cappuccinos each morning, as we embarked on the relentless tour of design duty that is Salone. On our last day in Milan, we bring you snapshots of just some of the inspiring moments, monuments, and people we encountered.

Citizen@Triennale

Above: We lost all sense of time at CITIZEN’s spellbinding installation at the Triennale. Paris-based architect Tsuyoshi Tane and CITIZEN’s in-house design team tackled the theme of “light is time” with the suspension of 80,000 plates — the main movement plate that forms the foundation of all watches.
