While at the show I could not help but wonder, what are the best design lessons from this year’s furniture fair, lessons that I can share with you and inspire you to discover new ideas for your condos space.
One very interesting design was the stackable Hemp chair by german designer Werner Aisslinger. He is using a new technology in which natural fibers like hemp are molded under heat with an ecological glue creating a sustainable composite material.
The Designjuction event was a hit! as British furniture brand Modus, amongst others, launched few new products. One of these is part of a collaboration between Studio KG and Velcro (still under development). It is a modular partition system with shape and size flexibility- a kit of different length tubes wrapped in strips of Velcro makes quick room dividers custom designed by... You!
In an extremely theatrical setting vibrant light sculptures stand out in space like gigantic monuments. The lamps in the collection -- repeated, rotated and repositioned -- will be multiplied to present the nature of every model in a crescendo of emotions. This is Metamorphosis, the Foscarini installation at Fuorisalone 2011, in the Superstudio Più spaces. Watch this video!
