The year's finest furniture
Designer Thomas Lommée will continue his 'OpenStructures' project, a modular, democratic construction model 'where everyone designs for everyone on the basis of one shared geometrical grid'. Contributing designers to the project -- presented by Z33 House for Contemporary Art and REcentre (centre for sustainable design) -- include Dick van Hoff and Matt Sindall. OpenStructures will also be shown alongside new works by the likes of Michaël Verheyden.
'OpenStructures' by Thomas Lommée
Privata Oslavia 8, Ventura Lambrate, Milan,
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.
