As the Salone del Mobile in Milan is approaching, it is necessary to make predictions, albeit it a perverse habit that runs the risk of ruining the surprise. Seeing as most of the world, even those who cannot be present in Milan for design week, consult the web, we would like to indulge in this tendency, and make our predictions. We ask our readers to make allowances for the partiality of our choices; for the moment, this is only a taste. The best is yet to come, but we have already received word of certain, up-coming presentations, which we have selected. The focus this year, as we noted in our last issue, (#31, Backwards), is on the classic, indicating a decisive return to decoration in all of its forms. We are favouring feminine design, in synthesis with Silvana Annicchiarico’s collection of female design for the XXI Triennale, featuring the debut of two noted French artist/designers, as well as the return of the duo FormaFantasma, with a double presentation (galleria Peep Hole e Miart) of their new lighting collection, “Anno Tropico”.
