Salone del Mobile Milano 2017

We are just getting back to normal here in W2W after an eventful week in Milan. JP Rust travelled along with three members of the Design team to find out what is trending for this coming year. There were no dramatic talking points from this year’s exhibition, but we noticed that most brands opted for a timeless classic design that displays a lightness and simplicity.

Natural Materials

One thing for sure is that natural materials are here to stay for quite some time and we are loving the introduction of softer materials into the office.  Marble was just about everywhere – Knoll displayed an impressive selection of Saarinen tables with marble tops that were stunning. 

 

Colour

Organic pastels will still be a major trend for the coming year but there was an influx of rich velvets at Milan this year. Deep sensuous jewel colours that scream luxury. 

Return of the rounded edges

This was evident among the stands we visited. Simple forms rounded edges – new to the Fritz Hansen range was the Lune modular sofa designed by Jamie Hayon. We displayed this at our recent RESIDE pop-up showroom in the Fumbally Exchange. The Lune Sofa is both timeless, sculptural and functional, characteristic of Jaime Hayon’s Style.

Knoll

Knoll, first established in 1942, is renowned for creating home and office furnishings that inspire, evolve and endure. Knoll remains true to Bauhaus design philosophy that modern furniture should complement architectural space not compete with it. Florence Knoll, Eero Saarinen, Jens Risom, Warren Platner and Harry Bertoia are just some of the world famous designers Knoll have collaborated with.

Republic of Fritz Hansen

Founded in Denmark in 1872, the Republic of Fritz Hansen collection contains some design classics such as Arne Jacobsen’s Egg, Swan and Series 7 chairs and more recently a new modular sofa called Lune by renowned Spanish designer Jaime Hayon. Fritz Hansen aims to design beautiful furniture without compromising on quality. Fritz Hansen’s work is guided by the philosophy that a single piece of furniture can beautify an entire room or building.
