'Blossom' is a small collection of plaid blankets and every one of them is unique. All the blankets were made playfully with an industrial machine. The change in colour and pattern was adapted instinctively and manually by the designer. Uniqueness is guaranteed because each plaid blanket is made for 50% with a machine and 50% by hand. All the remnants of the weaving process are incorporated in the final blanket. High-quality materials such as wool, cotton and silk are used. It is best to wash the plaid blankets by hand or on a gentle wool programme.

- The Milan Bench
Author(s): Milan Verstraete
The concept’s origins lie in the guerrilla furniture series made by student Milan Verstraete This young interdisciplinary designer with a background in woodworking and furniture design uses design as a tool to investigate the complex relationship between humans and their environment. His designs bridge the gap between traditional craftsmanship and contemporary practices such as Street Art.
The Milan Bench series he made for Ventura Lambrate Milan consists of simple, versatile structures that can easily be placed almost anywhere in the city. These inexpensive seating units appear throughout the urban landscape as a sort of tangible graffiti, spontaneously leading a life of their own. Tightly secured on one side but floating freely on the other, the seating structures are simple but intriguing objects that offer fatigued visitors a welcome place to sit and enjoy the vibrant scenery.
