We’re off to the 55th Milan Furniture Fair next week

We are counting the days to the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy which is 55 years old this year – the world’s benchmark furniture and design fair opening on 12 April. We are also super excited to be attending new product launches outside the showgrounds and exploring the city of Milan – like attending the Tom Dixon launch at La Rotonda della Besana, a 17th century building. So much to see and do! We can’t wait!


Inkiostro Bianco produces decorative graphics for interior wall coverings. The studio works with artists and designers incessantly exchanging ideas from every field of the experience: fashion, art, design, architecture, urban buildings, natural materials and fabrics.

“We can dress any space in a completely new look – floor, walls, ceiling and furnishing accessories,” says the company adding that “all our projects are characterized by their ability to be customised.”


Falper will be unveiling a refined edition of its Edge bathroom unit at Milan this year which features satin steel doors and opaque or polished glass colours. EDGE includes a wide range of sizes, with single or double drawers and built-in handle. It has 45-degree bevel edges and  can be completed with built-in glass shelves or overlying bowls.


Happy D.2 by Duravit brings a soft, feminine design and new elegance to bathroom furniture. It gleams in bright white, different fresh wood tones or a purist linen effect. Soft pastel tones, warm earthy tones, light wood and a lot of storage space for accessories create an environment where batteries can be recharged.


Four Duravit products this year received iF 2016 Design Awards, including the freestanding Cape Cod bathtub which was designed with relaxation in mind. The tub has a gently shaped headrest at one end while the opposite end provides perfect support when sitting. It is made using a new material DuraSolidA, which offers a warm ‘feel’ and has a high-quality matt appearance.


Quartz manufacturer Caesarstone is collaborating with celebrated British designer Tom Dixon on a multi-sensory creation. The RESTAURANT will consist of four conceptual kitchens each inspired by one of the four elements – earth, fire, water and air. Demonstrating the versatility and beauty of the Caesarstone surfaces, combined with Tom Dixon-designed dining halls and products, each kitchen will feature a variety of colours and materials that complement the mood and atmosphere of each specific element.


A mysteriously dark and seductive ballroom showing 22 new pieces of furniture will be at the centre of Moooi‘s presentation to Milan this year. Radiating from this nucleus are passages leading to 14 home settings which the Dutch design firm describes as “luxuriously captivating, elegantly styled and embodying the rebellious spirit of today’s creative community”.
