First Impressions from SUPERSALONE

I want to congratulate Stefano Boeri and his team for what they have achieved! Supersalone is not just a reborn Salone, it presents the essence of the old Salone in a modern sustainable way. 

It responds exactly to what has been announced - no excess of materials, good organization and a lot of information! Enjoy a part of the inspiring new designs and talks:

The welcome talks with Maria Porro and Marva Griffin - a great insight about the present and near future directions of design!

Just a few of the numerous photos from the fair that I want to share :) There will be more soon. 


Looking forward to Supersalone

 I suppose that, like me, you are curious to see what new designs will be seen at the coming in less that two weeks new fair concept at Rho Fiera - Supersdalone. 423 brands in all goods categories will show their products. I have collected some of the news for you:

BEAULIEU by Philippe Nigro for Thonet

Horizon by Christophe Pillet 


‘Shaped by fire’by Katerina Krotenko, source: designboom


CARAVAN, De Castelli

‘Biggy orange’ armchair, by Aaron Chai, The Lost Graduation Show. 

A glimpse at Kartel window at Salvioni Milano Durini showroom.

Just some of the news. More will follow soon :)


One Growing Trend in Interior Design

 I like cork - as my readers have already noticed :) And I am pleased to find that the use of cork in furniture and interior design as a whole is a growing trend! Today I saw the latest furniture designs by Tom Dixon - enjoy some of them here below:

 "In terms of a dream material, you couldn't really get a lot better." - Tom Dixon

The collection is even called The Cork Family :)

I have even used cork in one of my interior design projects and I know from my clients that many years after it was applied they are still pleased with the results!


Supersalone preview

We are all expecting with great interest the coming Supersalone in September. It will show many of the new designs that appeared in the last months when there was no Salone Milano. I have found some of them:

Lisa Sofà Club, Lisa Lounge Club and Lisa Lounge Sidetable - design Marcello Ziliani 
Beaulieu, DESIGNER: PHILIPPE NIGROGebrüder Thonet Vienna GmbH

And this is the Riflessi Supersalone stand sketch - it shows a lot about the whole concept:

Lago, Meet Table

But, at the digital platform of Salone, you can find numerous new products, like this beautiful


Cork Furniture - "a new creation from the fires was born"

 I have always liked cork as a material in interior design. I even have a project with cork tiles in the kitchen and livingroom of a client. But this story from Yellow Trace by By Erin Christie  inspired me further. All pieces from french designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance’s furniture collection made of discarded burnt cork have beautiful sculptural forms:

They are from the second installment for Made in Situ

The designed pieces are the fruits of my adventures, explorations of geological and biological textures, patterns, materials and their related techniques. Above all, my stimulation comes from human knowledge and sensitivity, linking to and embedded in each specific place.” Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance
