hot In milan
Key trends coming our way soon…
PETROL FINISHES Hello pearly surfaces, goodbye matt mania. At Milan design week, Studio Roso brought iridescent shimmer to its mirror collection for Fritz Hansen, while Glas Italia showed off opaline laminated glass tables. BACK TO THE FUTURE Two distinct tribes ruled at Milan: the future thinkers and the throwbacks. Nostalgia ruled at Studiopepe’s Seventiesthemed members’ club and Vitra re-earthed forgotten prototypes. Google, meanwhile, explored tactile, textile-clad technology. SOLAR SYSTEM STYLE With Planet Earth having a hard time, designers were looking to space for twinkly, constellation-esque escapism. See Gervasoni’s Moon collection and the celestialinspired lighting from Lee Broom for proof. EUCALYPTUS GREEN In short – this year’s ‘it’ colour. Alivar, Gallotti & Radice, Vondom and Kasthall were among the big names working the hue on everything from furniture to floors. ASH WOOD When canaletto walnut-devotee Porada shifts its attention, you know it’s a thing. Coffee and honey finishes are bringing a softer, dustier finish to the brand’s 2018 collection.
