Last Thursday evening saw the second part of our annual Milan Talks take place in our Melbourne showroom, marking the first time the event has taken place in our new showroom. Partnering with Belle magazine, the talks were an informal yet informative discussion that provided a comprehensive review of the most important week in the design world at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy.
This year, the panel was comprised of Belle magazine editor-in-chief Tanya Buchanan, Travis Walton – founder of Travis Walton Architects, Fiona Lynch – founder Fiona Lynch Interior Design and Sandro Fanuli. Throughout the evening the panel members discussed the latest trends and themes from Milan Design Week, reflecting on the new releases from some of the most respected design brands in the world.
This was another strong year for Milan Design Week and with a number of new releases from our intimate family of brands including Flexform, Kristalia and Riva 1920, there was much to be seen throughout the exhibition. But it was not only the exhibition hall that drew the crowds, as there are now more and more events and installations popping up around the city in the ultimate celebration of design.
We would like to thank everyone who joined us for the 2016 edition of our Milan Talks in both Sydney and Melbourne and we look forward to seeing you again next time for what is sure to be another exciting year in design.
