Few days after the end of Milan Design Week, it’s time to make some summaries. Despite the extremely hot weather and the billions of people, this edition of Salone del Mobile 2015 was very rich and interesting. Due to lack of time, I couldn’t visit the Euroluce e Salone Satelite as well as Lambrate District at Fuorisalone, but here are some of the exhibitions and stands I was able to visit and have caught my eye. Of course there were plenty more notable ones which I’ll show you later in some Special Editions.
Salone Del Mobile 2015
Despite of this year’s trends (marsala, total white ..), most of the brands showed a different point of view to the trends. Most of them were moody, with warm neutral to dark patterns. I was expecting to see light pastels everywhere, but instead I was happily surprised by dark blue and green ones. The use of wood and soft textiles like velvet was also notable.
It was a big WOW. I liked so much everything I saw and … I think Fuorisalone beated Salone del Mobile! If you are looking for passionate designers and more interesting exibitions of the brands, I reccomend to spend more time wandering the streets of Tortona, Brera and Lambrate Districts. For me the main reason for waisting my time at the Salone del Mobile was because I was going too often outside to get some fresh air. In the districts you won’t be having these problems – going in and out of the showrooms is so easily and relaxing.
