Tomato red is the new color in Milan

This year, in Milan, we were seeing red, a juicy tomato-y hue everywhere, not only at the beautiful exhibition at Museo Poldi Pezzoli (showcasing 50 new furnishings by 17 designers all in the same hue, created by Luca Nichetto, art director of French furniture brand La Manufacture):

A wonderful blend between modern design and past glamour


India Mahdavi’s Loop chair for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna.

 Paul Smith’s new furniture for De Padova. 

Ideal Standard

As you can see -red is everywhere, even in kitchens and bedrooms:


And in the bathrooms. I like this new vitality in home design and hope this mood to continue :)


Milan Moments

 I cannot still manage to organize my impressions and photos from Milan design Week 2022 - it IS impossible to see and then analyze even half of what was on show at the grounds of Rho Fiera, even more on all areas or Fuorisalone, but I want to share some of the most impressive moments from my stay that I have succeeded to capture:

This is the entrance at half past 8 in the morning of the 1st day

The welcome meeting of with President Maria Porro and Marva Griffin International Press Director
and SaloneSatellite founder at my favorite Red Lounge meeting point for journalists and VIP guests.

The usual crowd with increased vitality and energy thanks also to the colourful stands.
Loud opening parties at numerous Fuorisalone locations, meeting famous faces:
Kartell opening party
The greenery of Milano:

Imaginative treatment of every architectural detail:

And just a few of the famous showroom windows at the famous Monte Napoleone street:

And a glimpse to one of the many palazzo installations:

Milan is design and inspiration - everywhere :)


Some of my Salone 2022 Discoveries

 For its 60th anniversary Salone del Mobile is back in full bloom! Just a few of the interior design proposals that I liked and may inspire you, too:

Gessi' s corner from Salone was one of the most colourful and beautiful 

Only 3 of many photos I made there
The other interesting stand was that of Scarabeo with witty proposals for small bathrooms:

A very pleasant surprise was the stand of Brazil:

Beautiful design by SICIS:

That is just a small glimpse - more will follow :)


Salone Del Mobile 2022 - Artistic Trend

It seems that Art-Design is a very distinct trend for the coming 60th Salone del Mobile which starts in less that two weeks. Art-deco influences and baroque adornments are often found in many of the new designs that we are going to see in Milan from June 7th during Milan Design Week 2022. A few examples:
