Derek Castiglioni, the outsider of the outdoor world, is going to make a name for himself. An architecture graduate turned outdoor designer, the Lombardy-based designer is rethinking outdoor living with poetry. Inspired by the English poet Alfred Austin’s quote “Show me your garden and I’ll tell you who you are”, Derek designs his own outdoor furniture, out of time and styles.
Today, he unveils the genesis of Supernova, a collection of magnetic furniture that channels the transgressive colors of the Memphis group and the sharp lines of Giovanni Bertone’s bodywork. With this collection of refined exuberance, Derek changes the rules of the outdoor game and exports art to the outdoors.
