Forest of Reflection - Milan Design Week 2022

An immersive forestscape in the heart of Milan by Calico Wallpaper, AB Concept and NUDE.

For this year’s edition of Milan Design Week, Calico Wallpaper partnered with interior design studio AB Concept and contemporary glassware brand NUDE to present Forest of Reflection, an immersive forestscape inspired by the Japanese Alps in celebration of the launch of Tableau wallcoverings by AB Concept for Calico Wallpaper.

Forest of Reflection transformed Via Pietro Maroncelli 7 into an entrancing forest complete with a grass floor, floating screens and central ‘Nest bar’, crafted from a series of layered antique brass rings. The installation draws from the new Tableau wallpaper collection, which explores the colourful and complex micro-seasons of Japan's coniferous forests, presenting both day and night scenes over two rooms, each dedicated to a different panorama.

Visitors to the space were guided through a woodland of silk-printed screens, lit by celestial clusters of NUDE’s mouth-blown Mono pendants, culminating at the Nest bar hosted by NUDE and serving a daily aperitivo; a bespoke cocktail designed by award-winning mixologist Remy Savage.
Prepared with gin, vermouth, aromatic crème de poire and a heady cordial of foraged pine and lime, the aperitivo captures the essence of a Japanese forest, and adds to the sensory experience by allowing visitors to encounter its unique tastes and scents. The concoction was served in NUDE’s signature cocktail glasses designed by Remy Savage, whose intricately fine and elegant designs were inspired by the Japanese drinking preference for supremely thin glassware, allowing the drinker to be as close as possible to the liquid.
