Following its premiere at the 2013 Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, design label Château de la Resle will be exhibiting at Milan's illustrious Spazio Rossana Orlandi showroom. The entire collection will be on display for the duration of the design fair Salone Internazionale del Mobile April 8-13.
Crowning a hill in the winemaking region of Burgundy, the six-room Design Hotels™ member, Château de la
Resle has the charm and personality of a well-loved private home. Adding to the property's aesthetic appeal is the collection of contemporary art and design, sourced from around the world. With their relationship to celebrated designers and expert eye for objets d'arts, it was a natural progression for Dutch hoteliers, Johan Bouman and Pieter Franssens to launch their own design label, duly named after the hotel. www.designhotels.com/chateau-dela-resle
The Château de la Resle collection consists of exclusive, and some one-off and limited edition pieces created by designers whom Bouman and Franssens have worked with on projects for the hotel since it opened its doors in 2010. 'Being originally from the Netherlands, it seemed an obvious choice for us to specialize in Dutch design, despite the fact that Château de la Resle is a French label'', explains Bouman. 'The collection is our way of sharing unique designs with people who have the same passions as we do be it art, design, architecture or culture."
Pieces from Château de la Resle on display at the exhibition include the Montigny, a limited edition dresser – of only eight pieces – by celebrated designer Roderick Vos. Design studio De Intuìtiefabriek have created Limoges porcelain tableware including a limited hand-painted edition in gold. Known for his innovative use of materials and techniques, Jeroen Wand reinvents traditional luggage with a suitcase, briefcase and vanity case, all limited to 50 pieces each. Also presented will be a series of lights by Kranen/Gille and Reinier Bosch and glassware by Carolina Wilcke and Daphna Laurens.
The Spazio Rossana Orlandi showroom and gallery is housed in a former tie factory in the Magenta neighborhood in Milan. The brainchild of Rossana Orlandi, it has become a mecca for design aficionados since opening in 2002.
