Lush, verdant greens take over exhibitions’ spaces and printed pattern at this year’s edition of Milan Design Week, bringing a breath of fresh air to Fuorisalone.


Luxuriant plants and jungle leafage are strongly featured across a diverse range of exhibitors and markets, from the high-end luxury players to avant-garde designers and more established brands.


Philippe Malouin displayed his new collection of 20 coloured concrete and quartz composite planters for Caesarstone with a striking setting of lush succulents and exotic greens, set off by the contrast with the highly opulent rooms of Palazzo Serbelloni.

French luxury brands Louis Vuitton and Hermès both dedicated their collections and set-ups to the jungle, the first enfolding its Objets Nomades collection with lush greenery across the stunning interiors of another baroque palace, and the latter presenting the Jungle Life wallpaper designs by illustrator Robert Dallet and the Zébrures new fabric patterns by Louis Bouquin, surrounded by the sounds and looks of a luxurious tropical garden.

Other designers and brands explored the watering systems of plants and their life across inside and outside settings, as displayed in the interesting works on self-watering plants by Pikaplant and the foldable flatpack greenhouse made by Jonas Wagell in collaboration with outdoor specialists Kettal, on show at Wallpaper* Handmade.

Plants are the must-do decorative accessory this year, and this is only our second day. We look forward to finding more interesting and eye-catching ways of displaying, nurturing and celebrating the need for green in our lives across the many more exhibitions we are set to cover.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to
see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so
she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed
and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to
share it with someone!
