Milan expo blends new flavors in eco-friendly furniture
Considered as the most important design event in the world, the Milan International Furniture Fair attracts the most inspiring and talented from the designing world. So, as the world’s most renowned designers converge at the center stage to highlight their gorgeous designs in these tough economic times, the eco-friendly factor was the obvious attraction. Targeted at the green-minded consumers with smaller budgets, the Milan expo saw unique blends of wood and metal that not only marked the taste of the moment but also explained which direction designers are heading to express themselves. Among the most gorgeous designs featured at the Milan Furniture Fair this year were De Castelli’s a wrought-iron furniture that double as planters, Michael Koening’s metal sculptures shaped like trees and Italian designer Alessio Pappa’s lounger.
