Ruth Aram's Milan 2017 Highlights
During Milan Design Week 2017 we brought out a strong team of ten who between them covered all the disparate zones sharing their discoveries along the way, which gave me more time to spend at the Salone and at showrooms in town. Here are some of my highlights:
The iconic Random shelves by MDF Italia have been launched in 3 more sizes and a wide range of colours. Their Milan showroom was also impressive focussing on workspace solutions with the Minima system.
In the Brera district, Miyazaki Chair Factory launched stunning new designs demonstrating the company’s exception quality and attention to detail.
I cannot resist a little well executed humour in design and Jaime Hayon is often on hand to deliver. These Happy Susto Vases are for BD Barcelona.
In fact Spain's Jaime Hayon is one of the most in demand designers of the moment as seen on Arflex's 70's inspired stand and many others besides. I have a soft spot for Jaime after we worked with him on his first UK solo show in The Aram Gallery back in 2006.
Zanotta created a strong and stylish stand at the Salone combining great new products with masterly styling.
Historic Italian manufacturer Cassina celebrated 90 years with a spectacular event at Herzog & De Meuron's Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli.
