Indesign Milan Review 2015

What can Australian design + Architecture take from the world’s biggest furniture fair?



BY Tess Ritchie

May 1st, 2015


Rather than attempt to cover every single aspect of Milan – because that is impossible – 2015 will focus on the insights and information from the fair that is most relevant to Australian audiences.

Fresh from the source, Indesign’s panel of editors, architects and designers will cut through the noise of smartphone journalism to bring you critical, considered discussion on the 2015 Salone del Mobile. From aesthetic trends to commercial developments, our review extracts key insights about how the local industry can respond to this year’s fair.

It’s all very well Instagramming the prototypes that are shown at the Fiera, but what products, people, themes, events and developments from Milan will make an impact to our local industry? What will actually be available here and when? How will the trends seen in Europe translate here, if they do in fact make it over? Why do we keep looking to Europe in the first place? These are the question’s we’ll be asking in our rigorous panel discussion in Sydney and Melbourne.

Expect to see some familiar industry faces on our panels plus some new ones.

Guests will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in social media discussions to continue the conversations. After all – Milan might be an event in a particular place, at a particular time, but its effects will continue to reverberate along our shores for months after.
