Editor’s Pick: Ready for Milan

Milan Design Week 2017

Before the MIX Magazine team all head off to Milan Design Week (4-9 April), we thought we would share with you some of the names and events on our to do list.

Caesarstone Pavilion

We love the sound of Caesarstone’s installation at Palazzo Serbelloni; Stone Age Folk by Jaime Hayon, inspired by flora, fauna and folklore from different cultures. Hayon’s architectural pavilion, which references the Great Exhibition of 1851, is nothing if not ambitious, combining over 48 Caesarstone colours with metal and stained glass.

Another installation we will be visiting is Compac’s collaboration with Arik Levy at Tom Dixon’s MULTIPLEX. Kryptonite is a new sculptural interpretation of the Genesis collection, an exploration of the material and multi-media insight into innovation and tech.

Starting at Salone del Mobile, we will be visiting Euroluce, Workplace3.0 and young designer’s work at SaloneSatellite, always a great source of inspiration. Then there’s DeLightFuL in Pavilion 15, a visual and sensory exploration of everyday living with brands including Artemide, Dedar, Driade, EdraFlexform, Flos, Flou, FontanaArte, Foscarini, Kartell, Kundalini, Luceplan, Magis, Minotti, Molteni&C and Moroso.

At Ventura Lambrate, we will be taking time to see Everything is Connected, 24 designers and craftspeople from Norway showcasing the country’s current generation of creative talent.

We also like the look of Joynout and its multi-functional seat Daydream, launching at Ventura Lambrate 15.

Humanscale

Over in Brera Design District we will be stopping off at Humanscale’s RE:CHARGE cafe, designed by Todd Bracher and featuring an air-purifying wall by Vertical Field.

Halo by Matthew McCormick.

And we can never resist Moooi, back once again at Via Savona 56 in Zona Tortona. Likewise Spazio Rossana Orlandi to get a viewing of the rather beautiful HALO chandelier designed by Matthew McCormick.
