At the Salone Satellite

Yesterday at the International Furniture Fair in Milan.

Couldn’t help smiling at the coffee cups of Lucy Turner, a student at the University of Plymouth.


Swedish desigers Front were showing “Representation of Things”, computer game as a design tool. The work questions whether a designed object can exist without being materialized. A series of objects were created within the computer game to explore the non-materialized object and see what kind of object can be designed in a world where the forces of nature are put aside and designers can use materials that do not exist.


Rather liked the phonograph of Cucumberlab. When you approach it the glass panels turn transparent to reveal the wine bottles stacked under the music machine. There was also this provocative “most expensive chair in the world. To die for” with straps accessorized with diamonds, by John Angelo Benson.
