Salone del Mobile 2012: the Wallpaper* Edit
Having reached the half-century mark last year, the 51st edition of the world’s biggest and brightest furniture fair perhaps ought to be a more subdued affair. But the Salone del Mobile in Milan is showing no signs of slowing down with age. Instead, this year - more than any in recent history - the fair and the ‘Fuorisalone’ activities seem actively rejuvenated with a flurry of beautifully packaged new brands launching, smooth new faces on the scene, and (most intriguingly) a flurry of dynamic ideas and energetic initiatives that promise to diminish all premature signs of design fatigue in an instant. Here we give you our pick of the top 25 events.
