How happy Milan is 2019

From April 9 Milan becomes a city of happy people for a week. The events of Salone Del Mobile 2019 exhibition allow designers, journalists, architects, entrepreneurs and just visitors of the city to recharge themselves with the energy of creativity for the whole year. I love this year, although we will not see my favorite kitchens, but there is an opportunity to focus on light and the rest of the furniture. And in the city, as always, an insane amount of installations and joyful events. Let’s see the highlights and what the future interior design is preparing for us.

«Philippe Starck, Autodesk and Kartell asked a question to artificial intelligence:

“Don’t you know how to make your body relax, using the least amount of material?”.

AI, without culture, without memory, without experience and cultural traditions, has answered with what it’s got – with intelligence. That’s how the chair has appeared which was created out of the human thought.

It is the first chair which was made outside of our brain, our pattern of thought. Photo

Irony is one of the important thing in the spirit of Karman factory. As well as in case of Bibendum lamp design. Paola Navone was inspired by Michelin logo. However, I have already written about these awesome creators of light design here.

“Giraffe in love” is the new product created in collaboration between artist/designer Marcantonio and Qeeboo. Dreamy giraffe with a classic Marie-Therese style chandelier. “Giraffe in love” symbolizes irony and lightness: the giraffe is in love, but still doesn’t know it. The natural size of a young giraffe is 4 meters. The price is 29,000 euros. Wall option costs 10 times lower.

In 1932 Gio Ponti founded FontanaArte. Best-known architects and designers were involved. This year Stefano Boeri have joined th collaboration. He designed Lasospesa lamp, which I will certainly add to my list of new products.

David Pompa from Mexico introduced Origo lamp. Consists of two extremes: opal glass and volcanic stone. Both materials make the connection between light and composition.

Here is another development of the young company in-es.artdesign. The Luna collection is complemented by Luna Liberty and T.moon lamps. Very poetic and romantic.

We can write about the light endlessly cause there are innumerable brands for every taste. All of them can become a part of your interior. I have already a certain pool and along with it more and more new beautiful brands are found out. Let’s look through some non-exhibition events.

Sabine Marcelis turned Milan’s main department store into an eco project called The Green Life. Store windows, product expositions, corridors and a boulevard in front of the store were filled with green plants. Near the entrance, specially prepared 16 100-year-old olive trees.

Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci decided to make their own brand Dimoremilano. It will put all the studio projects together. The new collection will be called Interstellar. And the traditional installations on via Solferino in Dimoregallery will continue to attract beauty lovers. This year there is an exhibition dedicated to the Italian artist Gabriella Crespi. Details can be found on their new page – http://dimoremilano.com/

Exhibits of the most iconic a pieces of Italian design, part of the 1,600 objects have been presented at the Triennale Museum.  Among them exhibits of Giò Ponti, Alessandro Mendini, Gaetano Pesce, Ettore Sottsass and other people of the epoch.

Beneath it, inside the canal itself, a wunderkammer has been created, where guests can experience all the beauty, energy and shape of water, enfolded in image and sound thanks to the use of cutting-edge technology.

And finally, Spazio Maiocchi is a new social space where art, design and fashion intertwine, creating new cultural impressions.

In a multiroom installation at Spazio Maiocchi, Google presents A Space for Being. It explores the field of neuroaesthetics and how different aesthetic experiences have the potential to impact our biology and well-being. Each room will be unique in design and atmosphere. Together with Muuto’s Design Director, Christian Grosen

For example, how do certain smells or colors affect the individual. Measurements are made using bracelets. The outcome: enjoyable aesthetics are good for the brain.
