The month of April feels like a new year for the design culture as it is that time of year when all trends are set in the Milan design fair.
Everyone rushes in from all around the world to witness what's new and upcoming .
The fair becomes the talk of town with the global visitors and designers.
This year was magnificent as always with the biennale of Euroluce-the lighting event that runs every other year.In fact, I felt that lighting design was the star of the show this season with the cutting-edge LED technology.
If you ask me what was particularly trending, I have to point out the Flexible and Mobile products that can easily be adjusted and eco friendly modular systems.
I have particularly noticed the repeated use of Random forms and natural shapes. For instance,Altura Alvarez had a fixture like a bird nest and it was so cute and stylish at the same time. Bocci also had dream like organic designs shaped with the glass blowing technique.
Artemide and Barovier&Toso undoubtedly had amazing sculptural pieces again and among them were the outstanding free form fixtures.
Lasvit was spectacular as always with it's magnificent glass figures exposed in translucency.I should confess that I could not keep my mouth from watering when I saw the hard candy like pieces 🍭 😊
Nothing could get cuter than the exposition of the animal figures in Karman's booth.Their installations were such an eye candy.
The 4 meter tree with hanging crystal stones from Preciosa , a brand renowned for chandeliers,was so captivating that nobody could stop staring!
In my opinion,Seletti is a to go brand for mood lifting products. So don't miss the funny details in their led lights.
Serip has been among my latest favourites when lighting shopping for clients.The colorful drop like crystals hanging from the gold leaf branches were simply epic 👌🏻
The synergy of the exhibit was so uplifting with emerging designers and international brands and contributions.I gather, especially this year ,everyone will have a hard time when finalising lighting projects with so many inspiring new products⁉️⁉️so good luck😊
