HOMMÉS Studio, alongside TAPIS Studio, under the umbrella of HOUSE OF HOMMÉS, presents NEOCOSMOS – Take Me To The Sun, a cosmic exhibition that will take place in Milan Design Week, 18th-23rd April 2023. Presented in two iconic sites, it debuts at Salone del Mobile Milano at Hall 18 Stand E01, and will return to Palazzo delle Meraviglie in Museo Bagatti Valsecchi (MonteNapoleone district).
After the success of the previous edition, HOMMÉS promises to shake up the fashion capital by taking the indoor and the outdoor concept to a futuristic level in a metaverse experience. NEOCOSMOS is a tribute to the sun, celebrating the centre of the solar system in new indoor and outdoor design concepts.
The combination of an on-site and virtual experience is a portal for visitors to contemplate the divine energy that connects all living things on Earth. Through Artificial Intelligence tools, the spectators will be transported to dreamlike and faraway settings, where every element of the experience is designed to enhance the beauty of nature and extend the senses.
Reality or Illusion? Let yourself be carried by the split second where dreamlike scenarios create a relationship between memory, place, and passion.
Indoor + Outdoor
During Milan Design Week, those visiting the exhibition at Salone del Mobile Milano or in the Palazzo Meraviglie in Museo Bagatti Valsecchi will have the opportunity to interact on-site with two different experiences: a cosmic indoor space and futuristic outdoor experience marked by the selection of the highest level of furniture from the Studio’s collection.
NEOCOSMOS will present the guests with refined materials, futuristic silhouettes, vibrant colors, and a design based on comfort and desire materialized right before the eyes. Whether you are lounging surrounded by a sparkling pool or enjoying a breeze on a terrace with panoramic views, the feeling of having your skin touched by the sun is a transformative experience.
While the NEOCOSMOS interiors were designed for visual delight and as a portal to the visitors’ dreams and fantasies, falling in love at first sight with pieces that explore the best of both worlds, elevating the concept of luxury indoor and outdoor modern furniture, featuring irreverent and bold designs. An unconventional mix of powerful stones, vintage patterns, and curated furniture creates living areas that embrace life’s simple pleasures, revealing the natural world’s beauty.
Under the umbrella of HOUSE OF HOMMES at Salone del Mobile, HOMMÉS Studio alongside Tapis Studio, ACH Collection, and Gallery Design Store – the most recent brand of the design group – reveals a synaesthetic/multi-sensorial experience.
The unique design brands present tailored interior design concepts with incredible home decor and designer furniture, wallpapers with hypnotic patterns, astounding ceramics, cushions with elegant fabrics, emotional scent candles and home diffusers, to finally, rugs with exciting designs.
The Studio’s plethora of artistic manifestations defies design professionals and art enthusiasts to discover home as a tool, a canvas, and a concept—a tool to create the very own world we want to live in.
Be enchanted with products that were designed especially for the event, side by side with some of HOMMÉS Studio’s great icons. Among them the classic Tropez daybed – perfect for recharging energies with style –; the Lunarys Center Table – made in travertine stone and ideal for indoor or outdoor projects – and the Elektra, a multifunctional parasol in travertine marble and nero marquina (that can also be transformed into a side table).
The indoor area is brightened by the charming and desirable new red Lisola Armchair, alongside the unique design of the Luminous Wood Floor and all the authenticity and boldness of the Ray Rug.
REALITY OR ILLUSION?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a game changer in many industries, and in interior design is no exception. With an eye on the future, HOMMÉS Studio goes beyond the obvious and offers a multi-sensory experience combining the best of AI tools with metaverse that will give visitors a glimpse of the future of Interior Design and Outdoor Lifestyle.
More than a design concept, NEOCOSMOS is a different approach to traditional design. A vision for the future of human living spaces, blurring the boundaries between the interior and exterior, reality and imagination, comfort and desire. It is the perfect framework for adding fantasy to our lives, transforming any home into a private universe. The future is now.
Take a seat, relax, and enjoy. TAKE ME TO THE SUN.

Micael Carvalho is the creative director of HOMMÉS Studio and a multidisciplinary artist who finds interior design the peak manifestation of his passion for art history and visual arts, from photography and painting to digital design.
Born to a mother whose family is tied to handmade textiles and artisanal fashion and to a father who is a photography and nature lover, Micael learned to explore the beauty within the simplest things from a very young age. His attraction to everything aesthetic and authentic was nurtured during his childhood. To him, home is the primary source of inspiration, ‘home is more than a space where you live. It should be your creative harbor with the power to transform, inspire, and change your soul.’
Whenever he leaves his creative nest, Micael Carvalho carries a notebook. A mere landscape can lead him to a creative spree, and creating is the catharsis for his aesthetic soul and uninterrupted creative mindset. Micael sees design as a magic tool to bring his ideas to life and share his imaginative world with the people around him, and he feels that creating is what he is meant to do – at least, it is what makes him happy and feel alive.
