Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Last week in Milan, we celebrated the 56th edition of Salone del Mobile (April 4-9). There, we witnessed new product launches and the release of some highly-anticipated collaborations. Particularly interesting were this year’s creative home appurtenances. Below, Whitewall highlights a few must-see objects.
Spicing up Atelier Swarovski Home was Thomás Alonso’s contemporary serving trays. This was Alonso’s second time collaborating with the brand, this time showing the evolution of his trays and highlighting his signature color play.
Set within the regal setting of the Milano Centrale train station, Lee Broom showed a sleek and solid Carrara marble grandfather clock to celebrate his 10th anniversary showing at Salone Del Mobile.
MissoniHome’s colorful energy shone through its new wallpaper—Wallcoverings-01—during the brand’s immersive installation “Take It Easy” at its showroom on Milan’s via Solferino. The wallpaper, in medium and macro sizes, depicts a photographic image of knit, originally designed by Ottavio Missoni in 1969.
Riva collaborated with Lamborghini to release a new collection of furniture entitled “Authentic Living,” which includes a desk, bookshelf, chair, table, and sofa, and is signed by Karim Rashid. But it was its bookshelf that was especially exciting. The solid walnut wood, complemented with black leather, exudes a natural and genuine aesthetic, clad with five shelves.
Visionnaire provided a solid must-have for the bathroom. Designed by Alessandro La Spada, the console, heavy in marble and complemented with brushed steel and satin gunmetal finishing, features an elegant mirror with a metal frame.
