Milan Salone del Mobile 2012

Just a few highlights of Milan's International Furniture Fair, which finished yesterday.

Loads of venues around the city, showcase new designs and creative installations, often in existing shops, courtyards and even the science museum (Tom Dixon's "Most")!  The exploratory nature of the fair is what makes it so interesting, which is why I didn't spend too long at the actual massive fair, in Rho, Milan.  It's crazy, intense, and overwhelming!  To give you an idea of size, they offer 3 day tickets, so you can see everything.  I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't 20 times the size of Earl's Court.  It's immense.  Highlights included for me, Lago, a collection of furniture which examines who we actually use space, and applying that to furniture design, and BeB's outdoor range.
