Time for a digital ZEN moment. COS revealed their collaboration with New York- based studio Snarkitecture at this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan. The result is an Art Installation which will take you to a completely different and more relaxing place. The designers from Snarkitecture, Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen were asked to create the perfect environment that reflects the brand’s core DNA. The result is an installation that speaks to an appreciation of clean lines, the ambiguity of transparency and the transformation of the everyday into something extraordinary. Snarkitecture transformed Spazio Erbe in Brera to create an immersive translucent cave.

Arsham and Mustonen Express: “We’re very excited for people to experience the installation we’ve created with COS for Salone del Mobile. The final space has a sense of calmness and wonder that we hope visitors will explore and return to. The undulating spaces and the shifting quality of light seem to create a different experience with each visit”

Snarkitecture describe “removing anything non-essential and focusing the viewer’s experience” and comparably the COS aesthetic is often described as clean and modernist. Also, COS and Snarkitecture both believe in the importance of collaboration, each creating collections and projects through the combined effort of their close-knit design teams. With these shared values in mind, COS commissioned Snarkitecture to create an inspiring, relaxing space in celebration of Milan design week.’

This is collaboration marks COS’ fourth outing in Milan during Salone del Mobile and it builds on previous art and design collaborations with the Serpentine Galleries, Frieze Art Fairs and the Barbican.
