Gallery: Milan Design Week 2019

Last week, along with thousands more international design lovers and professionals, Design Insider visited Milan Design Week.

Over 2 long days I experienced many of the fringe events in Tortona and Brera.  My Tortona highlight was Ventura Future and in Brera I was thrilled to sneak a peak at Tom Dixon’s brand new restaurant The Manzoni


I also enjoyed The Litta Variations Opus 5‘s engaging Echo installation, designed by Pezo von Ellrichshausen studio.  I was extremely disappointed not to make it along to Arthur Mamou-Mani’s Conifera installation for COS which promoted circular design with bioplastic.


Prior to the event I enjoyed Dezeen’s overview of trends to look out for.  I discovered many designs which showed a human reference as predicted by Dezeen, although without their prompt I am not sure that it would have been a trend which I would have highlighted. 


At the Salone de Mobile there were many launches which I will highlight in my upcoming trend report.  However I must mention Stefan Diez and his new upholstery work Costume for Magis and the wonderfully engaging installation created by B&B Italia
