THE GREEN GALLERY at the Salone del Mobile, Milan

Following the spectacular launch at the Rijksmuseum in May 2015, online magazine The Green Gallery is enjoying a rebirth, this time at the Salone de Mobile, the leading international interiors and design trade show in Milan. The sixth issue of the online magazine will be launched on 4 April 2017, which is - not entirely coincidentally - the opening day of this trade show.

Magical oasis
Inspired by the infinite beauty of nature, The Green Gallery is creating a magical oasis at the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition in collaboration with The Wunderkammer. The garden of the Mediateca di San Teresa will be transformed into an enchanting floral world for six days to mark the occasion. 

“With this natural art installation we invite you to enter The Green Gallery’s floral world, which will enchant you and leave you silent and astounded. A world that leads you to the ground-breaking Le Refuge.” – Esther de Waard, The Green Gallery.

Le RefugeLe Refuge
Le Refuge is a unique piece of designer furniture from designer Marc Ange which will be exhibited for the first time in Milan by The Invisible Collection.

“Le Refuge is a place where you find peace and comfort. It is the projection of a childhood memory. The large leaves form a sanctuary beneath the sun, away from reality, just like the imaginary jungle that grows in the room of the child wants to escape the fallacies of everyday life.” – Marc Ange. 

Backstory
The Flower Council was approached by The Invisible Collection some two months ago with the suggestion of jointly exhibiting Le Refuge at the renowned Salone del Mobile. The Flower Council of Holland’s online magazine, The Green Gallery, has created an exclusive flower and plant installation for this, which has been executed partly thanks to the enthusiastic co-operation of many growers and exporters.
