BRAM BOO and the Milan design week 2009

Present at the following shows:

RED LIGHT DESIGN EVENT:
This erotic and sensual blended event, demonstrates how sensuality, seduction and eroticism drives our human impulses and how designers and leading manufacturers use this in their own creations. The goal is to show how design objects can be inspired by an impulse strictly connected to intimacy, how it can become a public object and how this object can then reclaim its private, personal world when used.

BRAM BOO presents at RED LIGHT DESIGN EVENT his "SLEEPLESS" bed, because of its particular shape, this bed offers you comfort and inspiration when making love...

date: April 22-27, 2009
location: Spazio Ilardo Team
Via Ludovico il Moro 27, EX-Richard-Ginori, Milano
opening hours: 12am - 12pm

The event is a joint effort of Jacco Bregonje and Jan Puylaert, Dutch designers living in Italy, and was made possible by the generous contribution of Ilardo Team.

PROPHETS and PENITENTS confessions of a chair  (a project of DAMn magazine)
A chair is a chair. Some close to religion, some are as ugly as sin.

To celebrate the existence of this daily-life four-legged comfort-bringer about 20 designers and artists were invited to express their personal confessions on chair prototyping. In the Oratorio della Passione at Sant Ambrogio, Milan's oldest church, these prototypes will be mixed with the typical monotone straw church chairs.

BRAM BOO is going to present his chair "OVERDOSE", like Saints are often represented surrounded by an aureole around their head, it inspired him to use function and especially an overdose of storage to create an aureole for anybody who is going to seat down in the chair!

date: 22-27 April
location: Oratorio della Passione, Sant Ambrogio
Piazza Sant Ambrogio, Milan
opening hours: 10am - 7pm
opening & coktail: 21 april 6pm
press preview: 21 april 5pm

An initiative of
Galleria Blanchaert - www.galleriablanchaert.it
DAMn, a magazine on contemporary culture - www.damnmagazine.net
