What’s On: Live from Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan

With Milan Design Week already in full swing, our editors are out in the field reporting back to us with the key design directions and interiors trends from this world-renowned furniture fair.

Triangles by Bertjan Pot

Some of our top sightings from the show, so far, include the above, beautiful, kaleidoscopic rugs and furniture coverings by Netherlands based, interior design studio Bertjan Pot, featuring thousands of color-coded triangles and geometric patterns.

Massimiliano Adami’s adorable tables are seemingly decorated in pastel-colored icing, and look almost good enough to eat. Also exemplifying the future of craft, Central St Martins Textiles Futures student Guinan An’s vases look as though they have been molded from clay, but have actually been created using latex.

On the lighting front, we love the multicolored ceiling light shades at Spazio Rossana Orlandi’s, and frauMaier’s colorful array of free-standing lamps.

Tom Dixon has envisaged a clever idea for displaying household wares in a ‘warehouse-like’ installation at MOST Salone, while Dutch design studio Droog’s humorous fish tank flips the idea of a Chinese restaurant on its head, featuring a miniature table setting placed inside the tank.
