The Milan Design Week 2014 is officially opened and it looks is going to be great. Here it is a first selection of designs launched for the occasion.
Assemblage by Faye Toogood moves from the angular and straight line to round corners and fat appearance. The swift was influenced by the designer's recent pregnancy and motherhood. All the products are made out of fiberglass, a reminder of Eames' iconic chairs. Also, Markus Johansson's new sofa named Coquille, after the French word for "shell". Glass and Carrara marbles are the materials used by Lee Broom for his On the Rock glasses collection, one of my favourites so far. Then, Japanese Nendo with the furniture collection designed for Italian brand Glasitalia: the furniture is produced out of rectangular sheets of glass finished with layers of paint in blue, grey and beige hues. The last object is part of the Chinese Zisha Tea Project.
