Known for her harmonious and simple style, the designer Chifen Cheng, explores the way lines and shapes intersect space. The Montreal native of Taiwan plays skillfully with light and shadow, creating minimalist and functional objects. Numerous publications have featured her work, including Monocle, Elle Decoration and Design Milk. She has collaborated with the design company Umbra and is the recipient of a Grand Design Award, A'Design Awards (Italy) and the Best Prototype Award of IDS (Toronto).
In 2015 Milan worked in partnership with the renowned Italian designer Carlo Trevisani. Known for his minimalist and refined designs combining European elegance with the finest materials in Quebec, the Milan team challenged Carlo Trevisani to create an object with an Italian soul, crafted from selected Québec timber. The Sofia pepper mill is the result of this partnership and has garnered two awards, in 2015, the Grand Prix Design in Canada, and in 2016, the ADI in Italy.
