Samsung presents the ‘Resonance’ exhibition at Milan Design Week 2019. The Resonance exhibition is composed of three zones: Empathy, Discovery, and Immersion. The artworks interact with visitors, taking their cues from everyday actions like breathing, talking and moving. These quite ordinary behaviours can transform the artworks in many different ways, allowing each guest to have their own unique experience. In the video shown is the Discovery Zone which has three installations: Dandelion, Whirlwind, Aloft. #DesignSoGood #MilanDesignWeek2019 #MilanDesignWeek #SaloneDelMobile #SaloneDelMobile2019 #iSaloni #Milano #SoFaSoGood #mdw #mdw2019

To celebrate 50 years of Unifor, a multimedia installation curated by Ron Gilad was unveiled at Pinacoteca di Brera. Gilad aimed at making the experience humorous and symbolic. A giant replica of #unifor50 book is installed in the centre of Cortile d'Onore, in front of Napoleon's bronze statue by Canova, allowing him to "read" the book. The book contains a multimedia animation video, starring Josephine Bonaparte, flipping pages for her ex-husband Napoleon Bonaparte. #art #Milan #Milano #italy #design #DesignSoGood #MilanDesignWeek2019 #MilanDesignWeek #SaloneDelMobile #SaloneDelMobile2019 #iSaloni #SoFaSoGood #mdw #mdw2019 #artinstallation #UniFor #rongilad

The Last Supper by Unifor. 
DCA Partition Wall, a double glazed glass partition system by David Chipperfield for UniFor was the first product that started the installation. The idea was to fill it up with content both from its original purpose - a silent room for an office - as well as an artistic content. In its centre Element 03 table by Foster+Partners and behind it a video wall projecting a modern interpretation of the famous painting by Leonardo Da Vinci.  #DesignSoGood #MilanDesignWeek2019 #MilanDesignWeek #SaloneDelMobile #SaloneDelMobile2019 #iSaloni #Milano #SoFaSoGood #mdw #mdw2019 #leonardodevinci #fosterandpartners #davidchipperfield

Now you can get a mini version of yourself. All you have to do is stand in front of the scanner, the 96 cameras will shoot you from almost every angle and in the end you will get a 3D version of yourself. This we can say also opens up new possibilities for interior design product development and modifications.

Capsula Mundi explores the theme of death through an egg-shaped container made of biodegradable material, in which a deceased person's ashes or body are placed. The capsule is then inserted into the ground like a seed, and a tree planted above it becomes a place for mourning and memory. By creating a cycle that transfers life from humans to plants, this approach abstracts the boundary between humans and their environment. #DesignSoGood #MilanDesignWeek2019 #MilanDesignWeek #SaloneDelMobile #SaloneDelMobile2019 #iSaloni #Milano #SoFaSoGood #mdw #mdw2019 #sustainability #biodegradable

While core products demand innovation and newness, creating perfect ambiences for them to be seen in is most difficult, since architects, designers and buyers from all continents, and hence various influences, are present. Nature has always been inspirational to human creativity, right from the time when the sun was first worshipped for bringing life giving warmth and light. And so it is at Milan Design Week 2018. Inspiration from Nature mitigates risk while triggering the instinctive comfort that we humans possess within.

Here are key observations on Naturdeco, a new stylistic language in interiors:

  • Tall plants, shrubs and small trees in pots with unusual, fancy planters.
  • Elements from the insect world, not just butterflies and dragonflies, but beetles, ants, exotic birds and mammals, are evident in tabletop and shelving props, panels, partitions, bookends, wall prints, frames images, and wallpaper. Many of these are presented in reduced form and in monotones, often in gold.
  • Non-repetitive organic motifs are popular, and are creatively used, flowing from wall to ceiling.

Naturdeco is a trend that’s here to stay as we get closer to environmental matters in our lifestyles.

When a sofa engages with a handmade carpet, the colour synergy pre-exists in the system. These tones are made to come together by an interior designer or architect on the notion that they present the right picture, for that room. And of course it depends on the skill and effectiveness of the designer creating the ensemble.

We found some vividly established trends, across all segments.

Perhaps the biggest trend is the use of gold, bronze and brass - a vague assimilation of symbiont metallics that is best described as alchemical, or surreal. Legs of chairs, vertical supports of shelving, Richness and class are direct results.

  • Dark and light - the usage of similar colours in two deeply contrasting tones.
  • A dark forest green and a lighter, almost desaturated pastel green.
  • Wine red/burgundy and light pink.
  • Deep rust/terracotta and a subtle peach.
  • Royal blue and the baby blue offtone.
  • These need not exist together; the colour palette has expanded such that they are seldom used in concert. More often, the darks are used together, as are the pastels. This evens out the context of presentation, in say, for example, a dining space with chairs of multiple colour tones. One thing to note though - the darks work best with single tone upholstery, especially velvet.

These tones are being used in upholstery, laminates, paints on walls and cabinetry, carpets, drapes, wallpaper. They go well with metallics.

Bronze-gold, high gloss black chrome and warm grey metallics are accents that are used for legs of tables and cabinets, small panels, taps, handles and small decorative elements. They are required to add a luxe quality to any ambience.

Warm grey and blue remain primary base colours, and are used on core surfaces - walls, ceiling and floor - setting the stage for class and style easily. Blue, golden yellow and even red maintain relevance, as product differentiators.

Day 2


Easily seen is the technology driving new innovation in furniture. Sofas with 360 degrees movement, seen in Koinor's new design 360° sofa, it moves to whichever angle you want. Each seat can be adjusted to any angle and allows you to relax in a comfortable posture with adjustable headrest and footrest. The coffee tables are no longer fixed, they open out when you need them, with a single touch.

From living, you will see new technology entering dining space. Inspired by the tech culture, the new Lab dining table by Calligaris extends with a touch of a button. It keeps the legs on the perimeter for maximum comfort. The table contains experience, craftsmanship, and the latest technologies of living. Lab is equipped with safety control system and a rechargeable battery that guarantees long life.

This year when it comes key trending materials brass tones and natural woods in contemporary forms mark a strong new trend. Brass tones were also seen in Molteni&C's cabinetry. The secondary trending materials include glass, metal, and stone on tables across most brands. Marble seems to be disappearing in this year's collection.

Velvets in different tones have surfaced as the defining upholstery material of the year.

This year the walls have caught our extra attention with intense colour schemes in kitchens, bathrooms, living.


Day 3


This year transformation, motion/movement, and flow seem to be the primary ideology behind the cutting-edge designs. One of the noteworthy mentions is the Blossom table by A. Casati. Parts of the table open up like curtain bringing surprise as an emotion at the very heart of the design. Movement is also very clear in Calligaris' table and the coffee table we mentioned earlier.

Our visit to Salone Satellite was quite interesting with young designers having recognised and won the Red Dot award. Natalia Wieteska's Brinkk sideboard is a storage solution inspired by the sculptural forms of contemporary architecture. The seemingly gravity-defying, monolithic, block of timber with its incision is an exercise in precision and perspective. The full collection consists of a range of sideboards and bookshelves which use this approach as inspiration. This product has won the Red Dot Award for Design Concept. Cecilia Xinyu Zhang is another young designer whose works - The Fifth D Clock and Equant Suspension are worth mentioning as well.

When it comes to bathrooms, Cleanet Riva shower toilet is something new with the sensor based washer. A design by Laufen.

Another exciting design was the Dornbracht’s “Aquamoon,” created in collaboration with designer Michael Neumayr. It consists of the four different shower rays, which in combination with the different light scenarios make showering an experience for all the senses.

Keep watching this space for more. As we cover trending colours in our next article.

The design community seems to have come out in force to make a statement that new ideas are the way to go, despite the changing geopolitical landscape across the globe. For over 50 years, iSaloni Milano has always been the birthplace of design and innovation in interiors and furniture. This year, we see numerous new materials, colours and concepts coming into vogue. While some of these have gained momentum from previous years, fashion trends have also entered mainstream interiors.

Most important though are the new design ideas that have risen from three things:

  • The past, a retro idiom of reinterpretation
  • Combination of pre-existing elements
  • Alternative materials being used

Manufacturers have integrated varied design philosophies and broken old rules.

‘Emotion’ is the core of the Milan manifesto this year. This is relevant at a time when much of the world is facing a demographic shift, and people from all over connect at will. Emotion is at the heart of the changing nature of furniture and that remains the basis of great design.
