Milan furniture fair exists since more than 50 years, it is a great opportunity to reflect upon the state of Italian design. In spite of those who think that its glory days are over, a new generation of designers that are both ethical and visionary have ensured that Italian design is still in good shape
at the beginning of the 1950s a network of family businesses, aided by a network of brilliant prototyping companies, constituted the backbone of the Italian design system
Vico Magistretti, Achille Castiglioni, Marco Zanuso, Ettore Sottsass turned Milan into the capital of design, but also Cesare Cassina, Aurelio Zanotta, Pierino Busnelli ‘B&B’ and Giulio Castelli ‘Kartell’, entrepreneurs capable of transforming a scribble into a product
since italian design is still going strong and the Salone del Mobile host over 2000 exhibitors each year don’t miss 2012 Milan furniture fair from 17 to 22 april 2012
