Inlite are excited to have the opportunity to feature ‘Adjacent Field’, a design installation by Linda Tegg in collaboration with Delta Light and NDYLIGHT for Jil Sander’s Milanese flagship store!
A multiple installation by Linda Tegg for Jil Sander Fashion House.
Artist: Linda Tegg
Lighting Design: Nic Burnham NDYLIGHT
Photography: Federico Torra
‘A large living installation of spontaneous plants picked from abandoned sites in the area of Milan. This is the stem of what artist Linda Tegg has conceived with Lucie and Luke Meier for the spaces of Jil Sander’s headquarters, on the occasion of Milan Design Week 2019 and to introduce the first in a new series of Jil Sander+ collections. Durable products, for both women and men, made for life outside of the city : time spent in the mountains, by the sea, in the countryside.
Mosses and succulents, blackberry, blue pimpernel, common chickweed, geranium, high mallow, ivy, ribwort plantain, scutch grass, wild sage. A few examples from the extensive list of species Tegg has sourced, with the help of garden designer Matteo Foschi, in the fields inside and around the city, that now form the luscious, “ephemeral” version of Adjacent Field. Arranged within a lighting installation specifically designed by Nic Burnham of NDYLIGHT.
After the exhibition, some of the plants will be returned to their original environment, while others will be reformed into a permanent assemblage, evocative of the spontaneous and overlooked urban flora of Milan. To be constantly nurtured as a living being within the Jil Sander studios. Turning the everyday into a space which is dedicated to the exceptional.
Attention to looking, contrasts, awareness and care.
“The plants will stay with us. Environmental issues seem, and need to be, more and more well rooted, rather than a trend”, say Lucie and Luke Meier. “We need to be ready to behave in different ways, even uncomfortable and inconvenient, to make a change. We need to find a way to coexist well with nature. The permanent installation of spontaneous plants will be a constant reminder, a catalyst for our awareness”.
On display in the windows of the Jil Sander Milanese flagship store, 5 large-scale Field Photographs taken in the streets of Milan by Tegg’s partner and collaborator, designer David Fox, offer an alternate view on the installation. Generating an interplay between perceptions and ideas of the natural and the human-made, between indoors and outdoors, echoing the essence of the artwork. And of the work of Lucie and Luke Meier for Jil Sander.
“Spontaneous plants break through the fabric of the city, they assert themselves against a logic that seals away access to soil, light, and water – a chance at life. The Field Photographs celebrate these acts of resistance, once you start noticing, you can find them everywhere”, Linda Tegg says. “These plants are neither singular, spectacular, or of any monetary value. They exist alongside us often on the peripheries of ur perception. What happens when these beings are brought to the centre of our lives, when we take them into our care?”.
Complementing this first instalment of Adjacent Field, a precious, large-format book, with a broader selection of the Field Photographs by Fox, documenting the sites from which the plants have been sourced, will be on display in the hall of the Jil Sander Studio adjacent to the plants’ installation. As a rare specimen in a botanical library. Effectively linking the sites through photography.’ – Jil Sander
The installation will be open daily between April 9th and April 14th from 10am to 8pm Jil Sander Headquarter – Via Luca Beltrami, 5 – Milano / Jil Sander Flagship Store – Via Pietro Verri, 6 – Milano

There is no doubt that Milan Design Week is huge for Delta Light this year, here’s a sneak peek at how they kicked off the week!
This year’s Milan Design Week is an extra special one for Delta Light who are celebrating their 30th Birthday. In honour of this achievement Delta Light launched their latest Lighting Bible 30 Year Anniversary Edition at their new Milanese showroom in Tortona.
Delta Light opened the doors to their brand new showroom on Monday evening with guests flooding in, ready to be inspired and to view Delta Light’s newest creations and amazing installations. They did not leave disappointed, with Delta Light showing them what true Belgian hospitality is all about, with a flow of Belgian drinks and DJ set.
Having already collaborated with Starbucks on their hugely successful flagship roasteries in Seattle and Shanghai, it was no surprise that Starbucks asked Delta Light to design the lighting for their latest roastery project in Milan.
As part of Design Week, lucky Delta Light guests were given a personalised tour of the Milan Roastery enjoying breakfast and the perfect combination of coffee, architecture and bespoke lighting by Delta Light!
