Before I get started, I have to thank Kay McMahon of Wallpaper* for providing hundreds of fantastic photographs of the 2008 Milan Design Week which includes events from the Zona Tortona and the Salone Del Mobile. Although I don’t have descriptions for each image, leave a comment about any piece you’re curious about and I’ll find out what it is for you, I promise.
If you want to see Kay’s images in their entirety, go to her Flickr page and if you want to read about the exciting debuts that happened this past week, then check out Wallpaper*s fantastic coverage of Milan’s most exciting events.
Kay took so many images that I’m breaking these images up into multiple posts that I’ve categorized a bit. I call this post The White Album for its overwhelming whiteness.
Black Pig Side Table: Possibly Moooi? Yes.
What would the interiors look like if Santa Clause were married to Toni Basil? Now you know.
Didn’t Olivia Newton John patent this look?
Too simple for Robert Kaindl, but equally beautiful.
These look like Marcel Wanders chewed gum moose heads in gold.
Red Cocktail olives with lights.
Horse Lamp from Moooi
Massive Table Lamp tall enough to be a floor lamp. Marcel Wanders again?
We’re now in the midst of arguably the most important design event of the year: Milan’s Furnitur Fair, and I’m stuck in San Francisco. SO, to satiate myself with not going to Milan for their fabulous design week, I’m reading great articles like the one referenced below:
Droog has done a complete overhaul on their website to make it so much more handy. If you’re not familiar with Droog, they are one of the most influential organizations in Dutch Design. It’s a treat to explore their wittey design objects and furniture, and it’s een more of a pleasure to explore this easily on their site. Mind you, their last site had this sort of adolescent game-like quality to it that made it fun as well. But if you were looking for something specific then forget it.
