Last week, some of our design team traveled to Milan to visit the Salone Internazionale del Mobile. While there, they took in the 2,500 exhibitors throughout the 209,000 square metres of exhibition space at the Milan Fairgrounds in Rho. The exhibition showcased thousands of high quality products destined for the global market. Below is a peek at some of those exhibits:
Creations by Jaime Hayon.
An exhibit by Lee Broom featured light fixtures made from bottles of Ballantine’s scotch.
The Royal College of Art PARADISE exhibit, which featured work from over 80 students as part of the school’s 175th anniversary, showcased a piece called ‘Camoflauge.’
This piece of work is inspired by the diversity and playfulness of natural pattern on animal skin and the animal’s protective capacity to blend in with its environment in order to confound the viewer.
Also seen in the The Royal College of Art PARADISE Exhibit was a piece called Fan Table.
‘Fan Table’ explores the role of tables as the infrastructure of social interaction. Created from over 400 slats, the table can be quickly transformed into an array of different shapes and sizes to suit its context or use. The surface can freely expand, contract and revolve in an effortless fan like movement of the hand.
