Always one to amaze the world with its one-of-a-kind exhibition, COS is back again at Salone del Mobile 2018 to showcase its new work – Open Sky.

Returning to the Milan fair for the seventh year, 2018 sees COS collaborating with artist Phillip K. Smith III to create a large-scale sculptural installation to be exhibited at Milan’s Palazzo Isimbardi.

Sculpted with mirror panels in a semi-circular silhouette, the Open Sky installation is "inspired by the constant shifts in light, colour, and form that are presented in the natural and built environment".

On the collaboration Creative Director of COS, Karin Gustafsson says, "‘At COS, we have been inspired by the way Phillip K. Smith III’s works interact with their natural surroundings allowing us to experience spaces in unique new ways and are thrilled to share Open Sky with the public."

Now at Palazzo Isimbardi, a 16th-century architecture, Open Sky has transformed its courtyard into a grounded, physical ring of reflected sky – juxtaposing the contemporary and the ancient.

And this exhibit will be open to the public from 17th to 22nd April 2018 at Palazzo Isimbardi, Corso Monforte 35, 20122 Milan.
