Salone del Mobile 2017 preview
Next week, design devotees will be making their yearly pilgrimage to Milan for the creative calendar’s most important event: Salone del Mobile (4–9 April). With new districts popping up on an annual basis, the list of who and what to see grows ever more unwieldy as each year passes. That’s where we come in.

Anxious about the Salone slog? Fear not, there will be an opportunity to recharge and reboot at Todd Bracher’s organic cafe, right in the heart of Brera. Created in collaboration with Humanscale, the green space is set to include charging stations with built-in biological lighting, an air-purifying wall and Bracher’s latest designs for the ergonomic brand, while providing an ’urban oasis’ atmosphere, complete with a cafe serving green shots.
