Milan (Italy). The “Fuorisalone” is always a great opportunity to take interesting photos: for many days, the city hosts an incredible number of events, exhibitions, installations and every possible thing related to design and architecture. I could walk around Milan only on Saturday and Sunday, since in the days before I was abroad in a business trip. However, I collected here some photographs captured “around me”, as usual…

The Floor at Agora Meyhanesi 1890 Restaurant (Fatih, Istanbul)

Istanbul (Turkey). I’m posting an old photo that I found in my archive and captured almost two years ago. I was in a typical fish restaurant in Istanbul (for food lovers, the name is Agora Meyhanesi 1890 and it’s in Fatih, in the Fener district along the Golden Horn) and I noticed this floor during my dinner. I found the sense of “orderly chaos” behind this design very intriguing, and for this reason I took this photo (although there was very few light, but this is just a technical aspect).

Photographing Around Me is also this (as I clearly write in the Manifesto): posting old photos only because one day they come back to my mind. The fact that this floor has ccome back to my mind just because I’m going to refurbish home well, this is an irrelevant detail!

Istanbul. Posto una vecchia foto che ho ritrovato nel mio archivio e che ho scattato quasi due anni fa. Avevo notato questo pavimento durante una cena in un caratteristico ristorante di pesce a Istanbul (per gli amanti del buon cibo, si chiama Agora Meyhanesi 1890 e si trova a Fatih, nel quartiere di Fener lungo il Corno d’Oro). Ho trovato il senso di “caos ordinato” dietro questo disegno molto intrigante, e per questo avevo catturato questa immagine (nonostante ci fosse pochissima luce, ma questo è un dettaglio tecnico).

Photographing Around Me è anche questo (come scrivo chiaramente nel mio Manifesto): postare foto vecchie di anni, solo perché un bel giorno mi tornano in mente… il fatto poi che questo pavimento mi sia tornato in mente perchè sto iniziando a ristrutturare casa, beh questo è un dettaglio irrilevante.

Milan (Italy). During the Fuorisalone 2015 – the “unplugged” side of the Salone del Mobile – I had the privilege to meet Philippe Nacson. Well, I met Philippe in 2012 in New York, but it was a completely different context. Philippe comes from the finance industry, but recently he decided to change his life becoming a successful designer. This is the official website of Philippe: here in this post I share some “unofficial” and friendly photos that I took in this occasion.
