Tom Dixon‘s Fresh Fat chair is woven from Provista, a type of recyclable plastic. The Fresh Fat chair glistens like glass, but with more fluidity and less breakability. The industrial process is subverted, as the extrusion machine is deconstructed to allow humans to take charge. The hot, fresh, fat polymer pumps out of the machine and is manipulated and woven by hand into primitive shapes. The Provista plastic takes on a glass like clarity as it solidifies into extraordinary constructions. Each object is unique and precious, and challenges the preconception of plastic as a throwaway material.

Once again the big fashion houses positioned themselves in the midst of the Salone Furniture Fair in Milan – Monograms and furnishings – united by design. !
Fashion and furnishings come from two different worlds, but they share the intention to present their own take on comfort and elegance, and they are united by the same common denominator: design.
By collaborating with architects and furniture designers, fashion brands can gain the freedom to explore process and materials through more experimental applications.
#Emojimilan, was an interactive live project based on the concept of real-virtual contamination, where visitors to la Rinascente were encouraged to take selfies in front of the two windows of the annex, and post them on social networks.
The Chameleon and The Souq is a tribute that celebrates a form that evokes the “snake”, the emblem of the Visconti family and symbol of Milan.
Jaime Hayon revealed a collection of fantastical furniture pieces, imbued with his trademark whimsical style, in an installation titled ‘Stone Age Folk’ exhibited within the historical backdrop of the Palazzo Serbelloni.
Described by Hayon as a ‘combination of ideas, from folklore to fauna to colour to material to stone to furniture’, the ambitious collection’s abstract features and patterns are intricate adaptations of Caesarstone’s fine marquetry, yet again pushed to its creative limits.
James Irvine, who recently died ( Feb, 2013 ) at the age of 54, was recognised as the design world’s ” Unofficial cultural attaché in Milan ”
This is the story of a ” love affair ” which grew to become one of the key “unofficial cultural events within the Salone each year”
