Salone del Mobile 2018 : Highlights
As Salone del Mobile 2018 and Milan Design Week draw to a close, here are a few highlights chosen by us.
Forms of Movement / Nendo
Dream like installations, insightful display of the process
Typecasting / Vitra
The Vitra icons and new additions, displayed in one composition. Compare & contrast.
Offect / Babled by Emmanuel Babled / Lucy by Lucy Kurrein / Surf by Maximilian Schmah
Colour, composition and function
Classic and modern. Unexpected design language for a modular system
Lammhults / Borge Lindau & Bo Lindekrantz
Proportion, form and material contrast
Nikari / April by Alfredo Häberli
Exquisite details are synonymous with this Finnish brand.
Really: circular by design / Raw Edges
Raw Edges showcasing the potential of the Kvadrat sub-brand’s material
Hay / Marselis by Kaschkasch
Simple idea, different but familiar, refined execution
Air Inventions / Panasonic
We loved the juxtaposition of the baroque courtyard and the futuristic installation from Panasonic. (Too bad the queues were insanely long, so we didn’t see the inside)
Unique mood through colour and material combinations
COS x Phillip K. Smith III
The play of mirrors installed at Palazzo Isimbardi’s courtyard invited us to take that perfect Instagram shot…
Wood in progress / Envisions x Finsa
Extreme explorations of colour and texture applied to a simple wood composite
U-JOINTS / curated by Andrea Caputo and Anniina Koivu / in collaboration with Juventus
This year’s gem of Fuorisalone: a geeky exploration into the way humans join elements of objects
Mini Living x Studiomama
Participants were invited to reflect on the future of living space and experience the pure joy of building with blocks.
