This month id focuses on some of the highlights of this year’s Milan Design Week, the epicentre of which is the annual Salone del Mobile… Some of our favourite new releases seen there will be in UAE stores in the next month or so.
Arecord 415,000 visitors descended
on Salone Internazionale Del Mobile at Rho Fairground, where a multitude of new concepts and ideas were presented to a truly global audience.
Dotted among the crowds were, as usual, a large number of UAE and GCC designers and architects, as well as buyers in search of inspiration.
The biannual EuroCucina and Salone Internazionale del Bagno exhibitions were a huge pull, but it was the halls of furniture and accessories that had the biggest buzz.
The Fuorisalone in-town activities were equally exciting, and many companies also chose to launch their new collections there.
In this month’s Design Formula (p. 35) section we present the fabulous new bathrooms seen there. (The new kitchens trends were showcased in our June issue.)
Here we have chosen ten newly launched products that will soon be seen in the UAE’s design showrooms and retail shops – including items that have been designed by members of the id Design Awards 2018 jury…
