4 Highlights of the Salone del Mobile 2015 - part 2

Af Gudy Herder  – 

My four video highlights from the Salone del Mobile 2015 in Milan.
I hope you have won a first inspiration impression in my first post: Part 1 about the Milan fair.


The next video is about an instalation Phillip Malouin (philippemalouin.com )
has set up for Caesarstone (caesarstoneus.com), the leading company specialized
in quartz surface materials.
Malouin was born in Canada and now lives in London, England where he is the director
of Post-Office (postofficelondon.co.uk), an architectural and interior design studio.

"An important part of designing something that will be displayed during a trade show is to design
something that interacts with people without forcing them to play an annoying game," Malouin says.

And there you have me, swinging in a stunning 18th century palazzo were
Napolean Bonapoarte used to live!
And don't miss the tropical forest that Philippe Malouin created with his 20 planters in the first room.

This year’s MINDCRAFT ( mindcraftexhibition.com ) exhibition presented a new selection
of the best Danish craft and design. The exhibition features fourteen new works by nineteen
of Denmark’s leading designers and craftspeople. MINDCRAFT15 is curated by the
Danish-Italian design duo GamFratesi (gamfratesi.com) and is shown in a spectacular historical
cloisteryard in the centre of Milan.
The idea behind MINDCRAFT (mindcraftexhibition.com) is to explore the span between
experimenting, innovative and conceptual design and sublime artistic and technical proficiency
in Danish craft and design.

The curators GamFratesi have framed the MINDCRAFT concept with the exhibition theme ‘In Between’.
‘We chose the theme “In Between” because it reflects the fact that Danish craftspeople and designers work
in a field of tension in between mind and craft. This exhibition covers the full range of that span, including
fully developed ideas, conceptual qualities and sublime artistic and technical accomplishments, coupled with
a unique understanding of the materials,’ say Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, who make up GamFratesi.

The changing day light reflected on the mirror tiles would make this intallation a true highlight.

So it's been another fantastic year, truly inspiring, and I can't wait to be back in 2016!
