Picks Of The Week

From tiny decorated rooms inside abandoned manholes to handmade stationery and a chic daybed, these are the VISI team’s top picks of the week.

1. Biancoshock’s Borderlife Manhole Installations

“Artist Biancoshock has transformed old manholes in Milan into tiny, decorated rooms,” says online editor Lindi Brownell Meiring. The installation aims to draw attention to Bucharest’s homeless, many of whom are forced to live in underground sewers.

2. Lensvelt’s Boring Collection

Editor-in-chief Sumien Brink loves Lensvelt’s new Boring collection, which is being exhibited at Milan Design Week. “It is interesting how they are intentionally downplaying loud design to juxtapose work and play,” she says.
