Once again, Salone mania was unleashed and the design world honed in on Milan. This year’s fair, which finished last Sunday 17th April, mobilised hundreds of thousands design disciples off their Danish-modern couches back home and through the giant fairground’s gates, as well as key events across the city which included Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines’ Hermès Pavillion, the Rossana Orlandi gallery, Ventura Lambrate and, of course, the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition at the Brioni House.
Didn’t make it round to all the events? Fear not. We snapped away during the week to show you all the wonders the design world has to offer for 2011, plus we partnered up with Crane.tv to bring you a zone-by-zone film guide to the greatest furniture show on earth.
Four designers give us an insider's view on the festival and its host city
