This is our top picks from Milan 2019
Saying that we’ve seen a lot from Milan is an understatement. There’s no word enough to describe the magnitude of the event. The scale and enormity rendered impossible to see it all and made it quite difficult for us to pick just five for our top picks. There were always so many wonderful, quirky and fun installation or exhibition to take in that we had to wrestle through thousands of photographs (see our Instagram highlights as proof). Nevertheless, it was enjoyable to look back and reminisce the wonders and excitement you get to feel while being part of it. Now, without further ado, below are our top five highlights from Milan Design Week.
#1 – Kartell
Kartell, at its 70th anniversary decided for a strategical row of shop windows each dedicated to an icon collection. Adding to that is the launch of the first chair conceived using artificial intelligence designed by Phillipe Stark in collaboration with Autodesk.
#2 – Tacchini
Tacchini was all about blurring the boundaries between work and living spaces. Without forgetting about comfort Tacchini mixes whimsical colours and shapes with flexibility and modularity for its furniture, bringing the traditions of the past and influences the present.
#3 – Moooi
This year Moooi presented at a new location. Also, brand new is the BFF sofa designed by Marcel Wanders and the Party lamps by Dutch designer duo Kranen and Gille. The lamps have become a fan favourite of many because of the comical shapes of faces they come in.
#4 – Palermouno
Interior Designer Sophie Wannenes has opened her studio and former home to the public to showcase an eclectic mix of Italian and international furniture. Combined with a deeply saturated color palette, each room had a completely different look creating a space of constant evolution.
#5 – LZF
The whole booth and the lamps that were showcase by LZF had a clean and simple nature about them. The star of the show was the Big Bird that was displayed proudly, framed by soft moody curtains for everyone to admire.
