Salone del Mo­bile’s first- ever man­i­festo asked de­sign­ers to use tech­nol­ogy to ben­e­fit well-be­ing. En­ter Google, which made its de­but at Salone this year (with an in­stal­la­tion high­light­ing its hard­ware de­signs for the home), as well as Sonos (an­nounc­ing a de­sign part­ner­ship with Hay), and even In­sta­gram (launch­ing the @de­sign han­dle and #De­signForAll hash­tag at the fair). Tech, it turns out, can be beau­ti­ful: the Qlock­two Clas­sic, for ex­am­ple, tells time with words (techno ty­pog­ra­phy!); Bang and Olufsen’s Shape is a wall-mounted wire­less speaker sys­tem that looks as good as it sounds.
