Cappellini arrives at this year's Salone del Mobile with an eclectic line-up inspired by everything from Hollywood to Africa. The 'Tron' armchair, for instance, pays homage to the jagged angular landscape of the movie's electronic interior world; while 'Burkina Faso', designed by Giulio Cappellini, is a colourful modular collection --including consoles, cabinets, benches and footstools -- that takes its vibrant hues from the rural villages of Africa.

Once again, the design world is honing in on Milan and Salone mania is about to be unleashed. The fair runs from 14th to 19th April but attempting to see everything in just a few days is likely to induce a meltdown. So, to spare you your sanity, we've compiled our annual edit of the show highlights.
A new extension to the fair this year is the Ventura Lambrate zone, whose industrial history makes it rife with gallery spaces. The area will play host to an exciting collection of exhibitions by the likes of the Royal College of Art.
Can't make it to Milan? Fear not. We'll be decamping to the city to bring you news about what's hot and not live from the fair. You'll be able to see all the wonders the design world has to offer for 2010 from the comfort of your chair. Just log on to Wallpaper.com to be kept up to date.
