Ciao from the third day at Milan! This is Anastasia again, searching for great designs from Salone del Mobile. Many Design fairs tend to be challenging when it comes to photography. Some photos do not do justice to the installations and objects, but still I am trying to translate all the beauty of Salone in only a few images.
These cabinets from Emmemobili are only one great example of how contemporary design is picking up forms form the Art Nouveau. I love this mix of new design and forms inspired by great iconic designs.
SEEN AT: Salone del Mobile, Hall 16 , Stand C27
A simply beautiful display of fabrics – here Kvadrat pressed fabric in forms of ancient masks to display the new collection.

This Pylon Chair is one of the iconic designs by Tom Dixon, the vibrant blue color is a strong leitmotif on Salone and is just a great reminiscence to our post on Klein Blue a few weeks ago.

Partnering with London-based design duo Studio Swine, COS has created ‘New Spring’, an interactive installation and multi sensory experience in the city’s historic Cinema Arti. Here you can see the bubbles coming out of the fountain that was inspired by the Murano glass chandeliers (Gudy is going to publish a video on Facebook this evening where she catches the bubbles which burst into smoke).

Fringes (and lighting in general) are big this year at the Salone and can be seen on furniture but this mind-blowing lamp by Artemide goes from the ceiling to the bottom.

I can’t wait for tomorrow and more gorgeous finds from Salone 2017…
