Milan Design Week 2014 – Highlights

Milan Design week just wrapped, and we’ve come back inspired, recharged, motivated… and even slightly tanned.

While we are working on the reports, here comes a sneak-peek via Stylesight’s Instagram account of our favorite designers, brands and installations that kept us busy running around town. – Gemma Riberti

Beautiful historical spaces are taken over by grandiose installations. CLS Architects at San Paolo church and GamFratesi at Palazzo Litta.

Tableware takes center stage – delicate natural imprints on Kolk & Kuuster’s crockery for Thomas Eyck and quirky declarations by Seletti Wears Toiletpaper.

Color is key to Glasitalia’s iridescent table and Bethan Laura Wood’s bright upholstery interpretation for Kvadrat.

Contemporary tribal defines Dante Goods and Bads’ chair and the fresh terracotta and resin mix by Ilaria Innocenti for Cotto.

Modern interpretations of historical designs – a royal camp bed from the Rijksmuseum archives by Droog and a contemporary take on the Quaker chair-table by Jakub Zak for Dante Goods and Bads.

Delicate surface repeats add a tactile touch to Verner Panton’s upholstered seat and the new tiles by the Bouroullecs for Mutina.

Sepia tones drive the palette for the delicate hand-woven tapestry by Faye Toogood and Bottega Veneta’s latest stemware collection.

Rigorous hollow geometries define the stunning CACO3 stoneware by Thomas Vailly & Laura Lynn Jansen at Dutch Invertuals as well as the terracotta wall by Patricia Urquiola for Mutina.

Old and new terrazzo: an original Memphis table and today’s Marmoreal rework by Max Lamb for Dzek.

Hanging conic shapes from the ethereal lights by Zaha Hadid for Wonderglass to the soft modular wall dividers by Nendo for Alcantara.

Geometric stone compositions in the works of Sebastian Herkner for Caesarstone at the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition and Oeuffice creative duo at Dimore Gallery.
