Class of 24

AHEC brings maple to Milan with the Class of ’24

For Milan Design Week 2024, AHEC shines the spotlight on American maple – a valuable yet underused hardwood with a delicate colour and a beautifully fine grain. Two UK studios participating in the Wallpaper* Class of ’24 exhibition at the Triennale have been commissioned to create new work in maple: the artist and architect Giles Tettey Nartey, and Parti, the interdisciplinary studio founded in 2015 by Eleanor Hill and Tom Leahy.

Supported by AHEC and Jan Hendzel Studio, each has used maple as a material springboard to explore and experiment, creating two very different bodies of work from a common starting point.

Wallpaper* Class of ’24 will be on view at the Triennale Milano during Salone del Mobile, from 16-21 April 2024.
