I bought a new computer--fast! zip!--and transferred all my files onto it. While watching the photos import at incredible flash speed (and to the accidental soundtrack of Daft Punk, which was fitting), I saw this set I took at the apartment some of my friends rented in the city center, between Tortona and the Duomo. Jill Singer and Monica Khemsurov, then I.D. editors, now Sight Unseen founders, and Kristin Victoria Barron, an artist and designer, all stayed here. (This year, Jill and Monica are posting not-to-be-missed coverage of the fair on their website, on Twitter, and for Fast Company.)
I went to visit them before heading over to the home of photographer Sean Michael Beolchini for the wonderful Italian dinner party, and we ditched press kits, opened a bottle of Prosecco, discussed the lemon decals on the kitchen cabinets, and considered which footwear would get us most easily to Sean's place way over in another section of our local map. It looks far.
The lovely Jill. A pine cone lamp, the computer, a kitchen nook.
