As usual, the Italian fashion city of Milan is THE place to be for design lovers during the first weeks of April. From 9 to 14 April, Salone del Mobile (also known as Milan Design Week) is the place to have a chat with up and coming designers, spot innovative furniture and discover the latest trends in decoration.
These six designs at Salone del Mobile were very much appreciated by us and we would like to introduce them to our readers:
Edra brings her ‘Egeo’ table and ‘Ella’ chair, designed by Jacopo Foggini, to the Salone in the new available anthracite colour. The brutal finish and asymmetric shapes are so remarkable that we are totally captivated by it. The set would fit perfectly in our office!
According to what we see at the Salone, marble is and will remain a must-have in your interior. The oval ‘Dalmazia’ table from the Italian Citco, is a new item in their collection ‘Citco Privè’. It was inspired by the Art Deco style.
This sideboard is one of the pieces Jean-Marie Massaud designed for Zanat. Zanat combines the traditional UNESCO-listed woodcarving techniques with modern designs and a complete commitment to sustainability. Solid wood and light metals were used for the ‘Koam’ sideboard.

The Vuelta FD chair is a piece of artistic design, made by Jaime Hayon for Wittmann. For the legs, Hayon chose to bring two designs: graceful tubular legs in black or messing, or the more industrial legs that come together at a central point making the chair a swivel chair. What do you choose?
Ini Archibong designed the Oshun Sofa for Sé Maison IV. The name refers to the Orisha that invokes the goddesses of the West African Ifà and Yoruba religions. "A place for personal escape," as Archibong describes the sofa. The golden details in combination with the white textile radiate luxury and comfort at the same time.
Minotti entered into a partnership with Mike Shilov for her Bloom collection. The designer used smoked, polished eucalyptus, grey-brown Italian marble and bronzed messing for the dining table. For the chairs he chose textiles from the Parisian Créations Métamorphose factory, part of Hermès Holding.
