Looking Forward to the September Salone

After being postponed several times, and the resignation of president Claudio Luti, finally the dates 5-10 September have been confirmed and the name of the curator of Milan’s Salone del Mobile 2021 is now announced - architect, urban planner, and president of the Milan Triennale, Stefano Boeri. He is also best known for his vertical forests - high-rise residential towers with planted balconies.

Probably this is going to be quite a different edition - a hybrid event with a new concept, uniting a physical exhibition at Rho Fiera Milano of tightly curated products and novelties of the last 18 months, which will dialogue with the all-new digital platform. In this new form of Salone visitors will also be able to purchase some of the brands’ creations.

Among the absolute protagonists of contemporary design, Patricia Urquiola is no doubt one of the most talented and prolific designers of the world. And today she celebrates her 60th anniversary -
 Happy Birthday!

Congratulations! 
Following her work for many years, I have numerous posts in this blog dedicated to her wonderful elegant designs, as well as several articles about Urquiola in the press. She magically transforms wastes from marble into something unexpected like her Agua Collection: 

Her designs are feminine and practical, often inspired by nature:

And almost always have their own story.
Hers is The most elegant industrial style bathroom and some of the most cozy hotel interiors, like the wonderful Il Sereno, where she has designed everything:

And many more inspiring designs!
