Salone del Mobile 2014 preview
Design pilgrims are already beginning to flock to Milan ahead of next week’s Salone del Mobile (8-13 April) – the world’s most important design fair and the unofficial start of the design season. This year’s Salone happenings are woven into the entire fabric of the city, from the apartments of Brera to the historic buildings of the city’s newly minted 5vie art and design district in central Milan, to the post-industrial warehouses that make up Ventura Lambrate – not to mention the Rho fairgrounds themselves. With so much to see, navigating it all can be tough. Here, we round up the top 25 exhibitions to see.

Swedish rugmaker Henzel has enlisted some of the art world’s top dogs to create a collection of art editions. Helmut Lang and Anselm Reyle’s designs will debut in Milan, before further pieces by Linder, Richard Prince and Juergen Teller are shown in New York during Frieze Art Fair in May.
