At Milan Design Week 2024, amid the dynamic atmosphere, HOMMÉS and TAPIS Studio present their collaborative exhibits, “Still Wood: Scenes of Everyday Life” at Fuorisaloni 2024 and “Still Human” at Isaloni 2024

Featuring detailed marquetry and compelling storytelling, these exhibits blend traditional techniques with modern innovation, engaging visitors in a deep appreciation of the enduring beauty of craftsmanship.


“Still Wood: Scenes of Everyday Life” and “Still Human” by HOMMÉS and TAPIS Studio take center Stage at Milan Design Week 2024.

Milan Design Week 2024 is set to witness a groundbreaking collaboration as HOMMÉS and TAPIS Studio unveil their dual exhibitions, “Still Wood: Scenes of Everyday Life” (Fuorisaloni 2024) and “Still Human” (Insaloni 2024). Set against the backdrop of the overarching theme, “Materia Natura,” these exhibitions promise to redefine the boundaries of conscious design and human craftsmanship.

“Still Wood: Scenes of Everyday Life” will be showcased at Casa del Manzoni—Via Gerolamo Morone, 1 Milano, from April 16th to 21st, 2024. Infused with the essence of “Materia Natura,” the exhibition celebrates the enduring artistry of marquetry and craftsmanship. Attendees will immerse themselves in meticulously crafted scenes depicting everyday life, inviting them to pause and rediscover the profound beauty of human creativity expressed through marquetry pieces.

Simultaneously, “Still Human” will captivate audiences at the Isaloni 2024 Glass House, Hall 1 – G06 BIS, presenting a compelling narrative on the significance of human artistry in an age dominated by technology and artificial intelligence. This exhibition celebrates the remarkable pieces created by the studio, designed both on demand and by local artists in Portugal. Conscious craftsmanship and innovative use of materials take center stage in this thought-provoking showcase.


“In a world driven by technological advancement, it is crucial to pause and reconnect with the organic essence of life, the material. Through ‘Still Wood’ (Fuorisaloni 2024) and ‘Still Human’ (Insaloni 2024), we aim to evoke emotions, tell stories, and preserve heritage by showcasing the art of craftsmanship in its purest form,” explains Micael Carvalho, Creative Director at HOMMÉS.

The studio poses a fundamental question: ‘The past is made of memories, and the future is made of expectations. And your present is made of what?’ This inquiry serves as the cornerstone of the exhibition, embodying the essence of design’s role in celebrating present human artistry while preserving this invaluable legacy for the future.

“At the heart of our exhibition is a deep reverence for nature and a commitment to the history of design. Through ‘Still Wood,’ we aim to showcase the exquisite beauty of marquetry while highlighting the importance of preserving this heritage and the artistry for future generations, ” says Micael Carvalho. 


The main theme of Milan Design Week 2024 will be “Materia Natura”, a concept that encourages a thoughtful design culture by delving into the deep connection between these two fundamental words. As attendees immerse themselves in the studios’ exhibitions, they will witness a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation, where matter and artistry coexist seamlessly. 

Visitors can behold center tables, bedside tables, and more, each intricately crafted with wood inlays that narrate individual tales—a mosaic woven from memories and dreams. Every meticulous detail embodies the beauty of the interplay of colors and textures.

From intricately designed furniture to exquisite decorative pieces, “Still Wood” (Fuorisaloni 2024) and “Still Human” (Insaloni 2024) glimpse a future where conscious design shapes our world. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.

Still Life, Still Human, Still Wood.
