Cassina will launch its first foray into outdoor furniture at the fair. The Italian brand has reinterpreted designs by modernist masters Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand to withstand the elements, working with the designers' estates. Look out for the 'Tokyo' chaise longue, originally designed by Perriand while in Tokyo in the 1940s, and put into the production for the first time by Cassina today, in conjunction with the 'Charlotte Perriand: de la photographie au design' exhibition at the Petit Palais in Paris, opening in April.

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.
