Made in Italy: the Aftermath of Milan Design Week

Italy design has always been filled with the most astonishing designs and artists and their influence in worldwide design is undoutable. Just a couple weeks ago we were delighted to witness the biggest design exhibition, Milan Design Week 2019, along with its biggest event, Salone del Mobile. Today we recall Italy’s greatest in the interior design field.



Milan Design Week
Roberto Cavalli Home Interiors

Officially launched in 2012, Roberto Cavalli Home Interiors offers a wide range of luxury furniture and interior design accessories, developed in collaboration with the sector’s top specialists. From furniture to linen or tableware, Roberto Cavalli’s home collection is for the people who aren’t afraid to be bold, exuding luxury and elegance.

Antonio Lupi

Antonio Lupi is one of the most popular bathroom design brands in the world thanks to its creative bathroom furniture and vanities created in Italy. Highest standard quality, customer care and a wide range of collections with a deep passion for work are the key factors which inspire Lupi’s family.

Giorgio Armani

The aesthetic of Armani/Casa, by Giorgio Armani, was born from a subtle exchange between sensibility and taste, it expresses an unexpected harmony between different cultures; a collection that transforms parallels and similarities. The distinctive style incorporates a harmonious combination of different inspirations and design codes to form a sophisticated atmosphere.

Palomba Serafini Associati

Ludovica and Roberto Palomba are top names of today’s Italian design. They are the two founders of the Palomba Serafini Associati, a powerful design studio based in Milan, Italy, that was created in 1994. For the past years, they have been collaborating with the most prestigious design brands from all over the world, namely Poltrona Frau, and the majority of their products designed since 1994 is still in production, making them some of the most long-standing design studios in production in Italy!

Alessandro Mendini

One of the design legends that recently left us is Alessandro Mendini. This top product designer was one of the fathers of modern Italian design and, during his long and prestigious career, he helped shape the incredible Italian furniture industry and its amazing craftsmanship.Famed for designs that include the iconic Proust Armchair, Mendini was one of those legends who were at the front row of the radical design of the Italian Modernity movement that started in the 1960s.

Antonio Citterio

With work in every significant museum’s contemporary design collection, Antonio Citterio is a knowledge broker for innovation in design and architecture. His humble demeanour and environmental sensitivity put form at the service of function, elevating both. Salone del Mobile 2019 saw the launch of a series of new elements in B&B Italia Maxalto’s collection that direct the brand’s rich history towards the future. Apollo is a new range of upholstered furniture, composed of three sofa types that balance linear and curved shapes in a fluid composition.

Dimore Studio

At Milan Design Week 2019, Dimore Studio established an amazing collaboration with Dior. This was an exclusive collection between these two companies, where they created objects that resembled the surrealism and cubism art. Their focus sat on the concept of different metals such as gold, silver, and bronze.

Dimore Studio

Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran founded Dimore Studio in 2003. Since that moment, they have designed and carried out every project in a personal and recognizable way: objects created by historical design masters live together with reclaimed materials and other “bespoke” objects to create and forge a particular atmosphere. A timeless visual and emotional pathway. Research focused on details makes every creation, sign, proposal, suggestion, innovation and reference simple, albeit sophisticated.

Spanish by birth, and Italian by choice, Patricia Urquiola was born in Oviedo, Spain and studied architecture in Madrid before graduating from the Milan Politecnico in 1989. She learned her craft in Italy and opened a studio in Milan in 2001, where she has developed a truly global enterprise.

Piero Lissoni

In 1986, the Italian architect, art director and designer Piero Lissoni, together with Nicoletta Canesi, founded the interdisciplinary studio Lissoni Associati in Milan, focusing on architecture as well as interior and product/light design. Lissoni and his multinational team thus comprehensively cover these areas, completing them with graphics, art direction and corporate identity. For Salone del Mobile 2019, Knoll celebrated an important anniversary – the Bauhaus centenary – and presented the new collections alongside the iconic products of the brand. The new collections presented by Knoll designed by Piero Lissoni are perfectly coordinated with the recent items designed for the catalogue by the architect.
