Visit to the Salone del Mobile

Europe, Italy, Milan

Last weekend, Gio and I made the trip out to Milan for Design Week. The centerpiece of the festivities is the expansive Salone del Mobile, at Milan’s Fuksas designed Fiera. The building has about 3 million sq ft of exhibition space and it was full to the brim with contemporary furniture, bathroom fixtures, and ultramodern lighting.

The fair was a feast for the eyes and the two hours I spent there were definitely not enough. But the event has thoroughly piqued my interest and I hope to visit again very soon. The highlight of the fair was the Euroluce exhibition, featuring some of todays leading lighting designers. The pieces they designed were innovative, imaginative, and incredibly beautiful.
