Milan designweek 2010

Working as I do in the interior design and furniture trade one cannot help but focus on what happens at the show in Milan. And guess what: it's on now! Marcel Wanders said on Facebook he's there and rearing to go.

Design star Marcel Wanders has created a huge range of new pieces which will launch at this year's Salone, including objects for Moooi, Magis, Cappellini, Flos, Poliform, XO, Skitsch, and Slide. Called 'United Crystal Woods', the whole collection will be on display in Milan in Via Tortona. More about how, what and the 3 year development in the vid below:

Naturally there are many other wondrous design companies representing themselves this week. One of them is:

Swedish design firm Form Us With Love will be hitting the Salone del Mobile this year and they're bringing their friends.
”Form Us With Friends is a concept designed to bring together our clients to present our latest collaborations. We are very hands-on and follow our products up until they reach the end user in the market. In the traditional sense, companies show off their designers and products, but we thought it would be fun to flip the script and do things the other way around,” said John, Petrus and Jonas from Form Us With Love.

Also: to keep on track what will be happening this week in Milan, visit Lucy's website TheDesignFiles for daily updates! She's a gem.
