A sneak peek at Edit Napoli—including our very own curated installation!

Indie Rock

By Wava Carpenter

In two weeks, debut design fair Edit Napoli will open to the public, and we cannot wait! We love that this newcomer to the international design scene is shining a spotlight on the new ways that designers are working: independently self-producing, partnering with regional artisans, and generally doing things that large-scale industry either cannot or will not.

The roster of exhibitors includes both established and emerging names, but all represent the growing tendency toward self-sufficient, hands-on creativity. Our expectations are high for the projects that'll be on view from designers like Simone Crestani , Constance Guisset, Gum Design, Max Lipsey, Elisa Ossino , Dirk van der Kooij, and Nika Zupanc .

For our part, we'll be presenting our own curated space, and we're calling it Indie Rock: The New New Wave to celebrate today's edgy but elegant artisanally-driven design. With thanks to our partners—Bloc Studios , Yasmin Bawa , Serena Confalonieri, Eligo, JCP, Purho, PortegoSecolo , Elisa Strozyk, and Wall & Decò. And if all works out, we'll also be showing off some new work from our friend, Italian designer Antonio Aricò.

We would be remiss if we didn't mention how totally fabulous the city of Naples is. We even have tips on what to see from legendary Naples-based designer Andrea Anastasio.

What are you waiting for? Book your trip to Naples now!
