SALONE DEL MOBILE 2012

Posted by Suzi | April 18, 2012



Technology and its’ influence is the theme of this year’s 51st design week in Milan. Proving it’s still the sparkliest date in the interior year; whilst I was unable to attend personally, some of the exhibits popping-up on my fav blogs have been truly electrifying.

With gadgets progressing at such a speed that I can barely keep up with all the chargers, let alone the impact of it all upon the vast field of geography and minds that is the design world- the topic fascinates me.

From Piero Lissoni’s installation for Nespresso, where hundreds-of-thousands of coffee capsules shimmer like cells, forming a walk-way to the coffee shop; to Established & Sons’ uber-cool illuminated patchwork table. I also have pictured Swedish design studio Front’s bubble LED light (that produces a cool three million bubbles before it burns out) and the work of London trained Japanese designer ShiKai Tseng. A specialist in pin hole photography, he develops his images straight onto the surface of his bowls.

More to follow soon… I am still trying to come to terms with an ink-jet printer that folds origami! Watch this space.
