Koskela is exhibiting at the 2014 Ventura Lambrate at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, opening on April 8! This is the largest furniture fair in the world and is held during Milan Design week. We are exhibiting three versions of the Hoodie Integrated, the product that we won an IDEA Award for last year. Each of the Hoodies encapsulates a different side of Koskela.
James Gulliver Hancock returns to Australia after spending the past 5 years working in America. Coming back has seen him collect all his stuff from around the world, and ship these belongings home from bases in London, New York and Los Angeles. In this exhibition of new work for Koskela, James has obsessed over all this ‘stuff’ and also spent time within the world of Koskela’s own objects to create original drawings and printed works on a variety of media.
Koskela designed the hoodie to specifically deal with distracting noise and visual in open plan workspaces by providing a visual and noise barrier for office workers and students. This is particularly useful in traditional open plan environments or in Activity Based Workplace fitouts where quiet thinking spaces are needed.
