Milan Design Week just ended and lots of things happened around the city of design and I Lobo You can’t wait to show you everything that happened during this fun week. Every single April, the best design event comes to Milan, Salone del Mobile, but much happens outside of the event’s venue and is taken to Milan’s design districts, Fuorisalone.
At Salone del Mobile 2019, Boca do Lobo launched a new piece to its Metamorphosis Collection, The Metamorphosis English Snooker Table. With the intention of provoking and evoking, the design brand has a constant need to elevate design and bring new products to its collection.
Embroidered images of cats, tigers, and bees traditionally decorate pillows, but this year during Milan Design Week, cat-shaped pillows, owls and butterflies were added to the usual square and rectangular ones. In addition to pillows and blankets with a new print, candle holders have joined the Gucci Decor collection.
The Gucci Decor pop-up store will be opened until the end of June at Via Santo Spirito, 19, Milan.
The Italian furniture brand Seletti methodically announces design trends and modern art into everyday life, producing modern furniture, carpets, and dishes with prints of current artists.
For Milan Design Week, Seletti created in collaboration with Toiletpaper magazine, a series of low modern cabinets, bar stools and chairs with drawings by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari.
It happened on the 10th of April during Milan Design Week but it was simply magic, as Seletti described it! Seletti Design Pride is the most democratic party of Fuorisalone.
Especially for Milan Design Week, Louis Vuitton adds pieces by Atelier Biagetti and Zanellato/bortotto to its objets nomades collection. Joining a line-up of renowned designers including India Mahdavi, Patricia Urquiola, and Tokujin Yoshioka, like them, the Italian duos have worked alongside an in-house artisan to produce their designs.
Versace Home had one of the top installations from Milan Design Week, and it was at the Palazzo Versace on Via Gesù, where white-hot interior design talent Sasha Bikoff and artist Andy Dixon dressed up each room in a wild remix of prints, hues, and paintings best described as a neon-tinged fever dream.
Doppia Firma 2019, one of the greatest events during Milan Design Week, where great artisans and artists collaborate and create complete masterpieces happened last Monday.
