Hayon and Wanders at Milan Design Week 2008

Categories: Art + Graphics, Modern Decor + Objects, News + Events + Contests

With all the Earth Day events and green hype, have we forgotten about the world’s largest furniture fair that just occurred last week in Milan? It was amazing. I have to thank Kay from Wallpaper Magazine for providing hundreds of photos of the show for me and all of the readers. Unfortunately, space is at a premium, so I’ve distilled the photos down to five. Three from Marcel Wander’s Poliform show called My House of Dreams and two from Jaime Hayon’s Bisazza Home Showroom.

Both Designers, I think, are projecting a much more baroque and fantastical future for contemporary design for years to come. Their work is predominated by white, smooth finishes with punctuations of color and shiny metals like gold. For lack of a better analogy, I would even say their styles, which were the most popular shows of the year, feel like stepping into Alice in Wonderland. Only time will prove if either designer’s visions will be fully realized in mass consumer products, already, both designers make a large host of beutiful products that exude similar whimsy. To see  and buy some of these designer’s great stuff, check out:
