LIFE­STYLE PICKS: STAND­OUT DE­SIGNS

IT’S EASY TO BE OVER­WHELMED BY ALL THE AMAZ­ING TAL­ENTS AND OF­FER­INGS AT THE MI­LAN FUR­NI­TURE FAIR, AS YANG MEI LING FINDS OUT IN ITS 57TH EDI­TION, BUT HERE SHE ZOOMS IN ON A FEW OF HER FAVOURITES.

Female (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

Check out some of the in­ter­est­ing de­signs that Yang Mei Ling dis­cov­ered at this year’s Mi­lan Fur­ni­ture Fair.

“Even with a site map in hand, I got lost very quickly, walk­ing through the beau­ti­fully cu­rated spa­ces at the fair that’s filled with all sorts of colours – but that’s pre­cisely why I was drawn to this all-white dis­play at Bi­tossi Ceramiche. A min­i­mal­ist’s dream come true, the decor pieces com­prised dif­fer­ent forms and func­tions cre­ated by var­i­ous de­sign­ers, so you can take your pick from animal shapes, bowls, vases and more.” “If you like the idea of hav­ing graphic lines and eye-catch­ing forms in your home or workspace (like your fur­ni­ture, decor pieces, light­ing or tex­tile/ wallpaper), you’d love what French de­sign col­lec­tive Pe­tite Fri­t­ure has to of­fer. With its mix of ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal lines, the Week-end range of out­door fur­ni­ture de­signed by Stu­dio Brichet Ziegler cre­ates a strong graphic pres­ence – es­pe­cially the lounge chair and cof­fee ta­ble that come in five colours. On top of that, the Loop Corolle Shelf de­signed by Aman­dine Ch­hor takes on a unique form as it holds your books and knick-knacks.” “Memorable spa­ces are made of colours, pat­terns or forms. If you’re into colour-block­ing your out­fits but can’t quite get your head around do­ing the same for your fur­ni­ture, why not pick a few vari­ants of your favourite shade to spruce up your home in­stead? A colour gra­di­ent is aes­thet­i­cally pleas­ing, as demon­strated by this mish­mash dis­play of Lievore Altherr Molina de­signs from Ital­ian fur­ni­ture com­pany, Ar­per.” “Unique, play­ful and func­tional, the Luna Cab­i­net that’s de­signed by award­win­ning Span­ish ar­chi­tect and de­signer Pa­tri­cia Urquiola for French de­sign com­pany Coedi­tion is a con­ver­sa­tion starter. The cir­cu­lar cab­i­net made of wal­nut ve­neer comes with slid­ing doors in green and blue lac­quer as well as com­part­ments so you can choose to dis­play or hide your be­long­ings.”

If you’re into colour­block­ing your out­fits, why not pick a few vari­ants of your favourite shade to spruce up your home? – Yang Mei Ling, Edi­tor
