The official countdown to the Salone Del Mobile 2018 has already started (with a series of important declarations), but the Salone Trend Lab is working non-stop on the current design follow-ups, in order to establish forthcoming values derived by the everyday reality of contemporary habitats. Live and Play while at your home, is the spirit of the times according to the mantra of our bewildered society, thirsty for balance and more than that. Home revival now incorporates the sense of a new playground and not just for children, but a creative, entertaining and self-schooling space of experiences. The process of remapping our house, just to generate stimuluses for living AND working inside IT, is the mega question and the pursue of a group of innovative design studios and collectives, listed in Salone's current Press release, quoting the notions of functional art, unconventional solution, lateral thinking, “serious” amusement, among others. This is the beginning of various interactions between traditional furnishing items and emotional needs, such as the idea of pure happiness. Feel free to explore the works of KI Design, Plumen, Think & Shift, Accent, Paul Ketz and Uuio and get ready for more chapters to read, regarding the Salone's upcoming edition and all its major factors.
Milan, Seoul, Helsinki: all three are lighting design capitals, for any design lover to intensify his/her research for the best domestic or public/architectural lights. The Milanese wonder makers Migliore & Servetto worked their magic on the Intesa Sanpaolo skyscraper in Turin, during the XX edition of "Luci d'artista" - creating a lighting project of high fidelity and extreme technical excellence. The design is composed of two installations, one external on the 35° floor and on internal, within the greenhouse in the heart of the building projected by Renzo Piano. A truly admirable work, securing Italy's position as the traditional milestone in the old continent's lighting venture. (Views in pictures bellow, Photo credits: Grattacielo Intesa Sanpaolo / Ph.
