I've bookmarked so many lovely things that were featured in Milan, thinking I'd showcase this 'n that over the next few weeks, but I can't help myself! Here's a grouping of good stuff; let's call it Best of Milan 2011, part 1:
Il Salone del Mobile 2011, top to bottom:
Switzerland's INCHfurniture's Papat table; long, lean, handsome
Established & Sons Takeaway; challenging the theory that what's inside the box is more interesting than the container itself- in a Tobi Wong-esque way. Charming.
The Bouroullec Brothers new & covetable creature is all set to replace old-school classics like Vitra's Eames House Bird and Kay Bojensen's Monkey for Rosendahl. He's called L‘Oiseau and will be manufactured by Vitra
Most of these items should be available towards the end of the year.
*technically not a real word but I'm thinking it should be!
