| In Situ Reviews - The new design review
in seeks to find out how design belongs. The home –as a collection of objects, curated cumulatively over years and decades– can be read as an intimate character portrait of the inhabitant. Pieces big and small fit together to form an intricate, delicately balanced whole. What happens when an object enters this space and doesn’t fit? In situ finds a piece of starkly modern design placed in the home of an unsuspecting stranger, to be uncrated for a boldly frank design review. We witness how the ‘surprise' design object is experienced, how it fits or doesn’t fit into the world our inhabitant has meticulously created – and whether it belongs. Our first series features the assuredly direct words of three Milanese women as they evaluate, appraise and eventually accept – or reject – a cutting-edge addition to their curated homes.

The first of these candid reviews of unknown objects introduces Grazia fashion editor Carla Vanni to a design from Germans Ermičs, an Amsterdam creator whose works make use of colored and smoked glass, with strong pigments fading to transparency.

Generally between functionality and aesthetics I prefer in theory, functionality
