Milan Design Week 2014

Milan Design Week 2014

Here are a couple of phone snaps from another fabulous week in Milano. Once again, this was a real treat for the soul and mind. Wonderful people and breathtaking projects from all around the globe. Even if it is humanly impossible to see it all, it was our duty to try to cover as much ground as we could.

Brera \

L'ECAL presented "delirious home", a collection of projects from second year students that were captivating and of high quality. Here is the link to learn more about them :

Tortona \

Tokyo designers had the honours in Tortona. Under the theme of “TOKYO IMAGINE”, this exhibition from Japan, comprises of various events expressing Tokyo, a place where both the contemporary city and Edo culture co-exist.IMG_20140410_165806

Like every year, Moooi had this superb space and celebrated new and not so new products, most of them from the man behind it all, Marcel Wanders. Strangely, the best part was the work of the photographer, featured with huge backdrops. Here is a link for the virtual visit of the show: moooi-interactive-exhibition-milan-2014IMG_20140410_155306
