After Köln, Milan


Salone del Mobile in Milano, after Köln…less hype, more craftmanship. On the 80th anniversary of the bauhaus, the return of the well-crafted over the decorative, the fashionable, the redundant, the transient is good news.

I am looking forward to returning to that second-hand market in Berlin where I saw the most beautiful 1950s oval table…for just 50 euros…(it’s gone, I know, I know…). I am more into “pick and mix” rather than in Salone mood!

Look at the beautiful colors of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt cafe’…very much recycled stuff, I love it! (even it does not fit with The Flat)

    ehi ciao paolo…I wish I was there, because by looking at what magazines advertise during the fiera it looks like they all do the same typically sleek, linear, mostly white sofas-furniture-bookshelves etc…kind of sad and boring homes but “with a lot of attitude”. A kind of Tom Fordesque feeling…

    I do agree that the neutrals are wise, you can always spice things up with you own belongings, but in the ads they may try harder though…the ads look all exactly the same.

    But from you say It seems that the reality was less monotone than the images!
