Tagina at the Temporary Museum For New Design (Tortona Around Design) -  Milano Design Week (8-13 April 2014)
The colour, the decors, the contrasts are three distinctive elements of the collection Deco d’Antan that, combined together, offer a big visual and compositional freedom. The geometrical patterns and engraved floral decors exalt the surfaces as to become true and real furnishing complements, soft to the touchy and precious to the sight thanks to the wise mix of the overlapping glazes.

Elements by Massimo Crema and Ermanno Rocchi for Melogranoblu at the Temporary Museum For New Design (Tortona Around Design) -  Milano Design Week (8-13 April 2014)
Elements is a large black box that lights up thanks to four luminous installations dedicated to primary elements. In the space, deliberately neutral, four luminous presences stand up like sculptures: mysterious, totemic, energetic and evocative of primordial power.

Thai Craftology for Thailand’s Slow Hand Design at the Temporary Museum For New Design (Tortona Around Design) -  Milano Design Week (8-13 April 2014)

According to exhibition curator and designer Eggarat Wongcharit, “Twenty or thirty years ago Thai designers were mainly providing OEM (original equipment manufacturing), but now we’re shifting more into ODM (original design manufacturing), combining design with production rather than just producing other people’s designs.” Mr Wongcharit is curating around 26 Thai designers this year, focusing on what he calls Thai Craftology, a mixture of craft and technology.

The Design Excellence Award (DEmark) was established in 2008 in order to recognise outstanding product design.

“conic-vine” by Nendo for Alcantara at the Temporary Museum For New Design (Tortona Around Design) -  Milano Design Week (8-13 April 2014)

Fine layers of Alcantara are bonded by an unusual thermocompressing process to create romantic shapes which are tied to each other lengthwise to form, in Nendo’s vision, rows of climbing plants that are easily linked together. They form a screen of soft Alcantara, in an original textural pattern in shades of dove-grey and pastel, which exploits specific properties of the material to capture and enchant the viewer.

#1 Art Interactions

#2 Superdesign - Collective Exhibit

Peugeot Design Lab at the Tortona Around Design -  Milano Design Week (8-13 April 2014)

#2 Onyx Sofa
Designer: Pierre Gimbergues
The ONYX sofa is a 3-metre long seat made of carbon fibre and Volvic volcanic lava stone. It is the first in a line of made to measure furniture.

#3, #4, #5 Pleyel / Peugeot Design Lab: Piano
design by Cyrille Vayson de Pradenne
Colors and trims by Sophie Gazeau
The lowering of the mechanics allows the aligning of the pianos cover and keyboard. For the first time in the history of the piano, the audience can see the artist play from any viewing angle. This shows off the pianist’s hands and creates a higher level of interaction with the audience. Moreover, the pianist hears the sound of their instrument with a level of quality never previously attained. The lowered action no longer inhibits the sound projection, which consequently becomes immediate.

#6 Sculpted wood & 3D printing
Seven sculptures, from 10 to 70 cm, accompany the ONYX sofa.

#7 Art Toys
A total of 12 figurines have been designed, each one reflecting its artist’s particular skills.
