Best of Furniture at Salone del Mobile 2017 in Milan: Part 2
In the world of design April is traditionally associated with the most important international exhibition that neither designer nor an architect should miss. Of course, we speak about Salone del Mobile – the world famous exhibition that was held in Milan for the 56th time. We’re continuing our overview of the most attractive stands and latest trends.
Exclusive pieces of furniture of this brand are created by famous architects, and hence their production is approached to like a piece of architecture. This time the brand announced the start of collaboration with the Agnona Company, which specializes on the production of slim noble fibers.
Earlier the brand focused exclusively on the production of beds; now it manufacturers the whole range of furniture. Next year Flou turns 40, and we expect to see many fresh ideas. In 2017 the company surprised everyone with their new design of beds with huge extended headboards. Among the new products the visitors marked new finishing materials and two models of wardrobe beds.
This year the brand represented bright installations. In them photos of apartments in the style of 1960s created a perfect backdrop for versatile products of the company. The image looked so organic that it seemed like a real interior. This way the company showed how to fit contemporary accessories into classical and retro styles.
One of the world’s leading furniture mills Lago presented a few collections in the context of their “Never Stop” concept. Their stand featured 8 interiors inspired by lifestyles of 8 famous ladies, such as the ballet dancer Carla Fracci, the designer Cristina Celestino, the writer Chiara Gamberale and the founder of Patricia Pepe brand Patrizia Bambi.
Pretty much attention of Milan’s guests was attracted by Edra’s stand and in particular by the new designs by Francesco Binfaré and Jacopo Foggini. The stand was eye-catchy per se – it was designed in a peculiar color scheme and coupled with unusual lighting. The most amazing things on display were polycarbonate plastic chairs, gorgeous sofas and other interior elements in the shades of amber, gold, kermes red and aquamarine, with velvet and polished steel details. And of course, we can’t but mention black and white bear-sofas and cool golden chairs: these are nice options not just for home interiors, but also for hotels and restaurants.
The world famous Italian brand Missoni is ready to cheer us up with warm colors, airy textile and their fantastic combinations. You can spend hours watching all the hues, but will always find something new and beautiful in the end.
Those who have their hearts set upon sophisticated beauty and stylishness, opt for the Italian brand of Misuraemme. Black oak, gray elm, glass and marble – the designers of the company managed to mix these materials skillfully and laconically.
Every year stands of this brand are the places to admire how skillfully leather can be processed. Only deSede can manufacture such products. Recently this German brand has established the following pattern: what we make today is just a reflection of what we saw yesterday. That is why their products can be safely deemed out-of-time and evergreen.
