Highlights from the world's best Furniture Fair
After many miles walked, many espresso’s drunk here are our highlights from Salone 2015 –
As always the Vitra stand was superb with a theme around their packaging almost like a warehouse, hence the many crates. New sizes (height increased by 2″) and colours on the DSW & DSR chairs due to people on average being larger since they were designed in the 1950’s.
There was a new upholstered version of the Prouve Standard chair, adding ultra comfort to an already superb chair.
The iconic Vitra Polder sofa has been re-sized and re-jigged with new brass buttons and fabric choices.
The SCP show was titled – ‘The Arrangement of Furniture in a Room’ and took place in central Milan. This was a cool show that had a collection of old Vintage furniture mixed with SCP’s new designs, a great mix and our favourite show.
It’s always good to see the stunning Balzac Chair, love the Tan Russet leather which only improves with age.
Another classic on show was the Agnes Shelving unit, a firm favourite here at Cimmermann.
The new Chouchin reverse lights made a good impression, the main light is finished in blown glass and the bottom of the diffuser is in the vivid colour.
Tom Dixon went all out this year, hiring an old warehouse in downtown Milan and turning it into – ‘The Cinema‘. As usual he didn’t disappoint with a stunning collection of new lights. A particular favourite was the Melt light, which looks totally different when turned on, it appears to become see through.
The Italian Masters of Plastic didn’t disappoint again. An amazing collection of new and old products with a twist. The Neon Boookworm was really cool and the new Mat finish Fly lights were stand-out pieces for us.
Salone Milan 2015 didn’t disappoint, always an amazing show with plenty to see and be inspired by. Hope you enjoyed the round-up of our favourites, here’s looking forward to next year.
