Traveling the world from biennales to exhibitions, she has made many famous talents such as, for example, Fernando Mastrangelo. Her famous gallery in Milan, Via BandelloThis year's event, which will take place in the Netherlands, is renowned for offering visitors the opportunity to discover an impressive array of new names and products that will set the trends for the future. Small selection, but great talent.
Fabulous glass work by the Dutch designer Germans Ermics. At Rossana Orlandihe presented theOmbré Glass Chair as well as the Horizon Screen which made a sensation under the lively pergola of their host. The designer plays on the too fragile, too miraculous aspect of this collection in order to divert the functional spirit which despite everything, inhabits them.
Hattern is a young design studio that has focused on working with a material capable of expressing colour and nuance using the principles of refraction and transmission of light. Their series of vases Mellow, in transparent or translucent acrylic, performed remarkably well this challenge.
Who could believe that these lamps are made of leather? And yet, here is the feat. The 2017 collection of Jorge Penadés Studio includes the Structural Skinlamps, Whose structure is well made of leather, and are available in any color. The study of this material in order to test it gives rise to a unique and incredible pattern.
Special mention for the NOV GalleryThe 2017 edition of Salone del Mobile featured many talents.
Both designers are fascinated by polyurethane foam.

Moreover, with Foam Me, they ask the question of the hybrid furniture. Can we attribute several functions to furniture?
The little lamp RTB by . Vincent Dechelette is surprising and different from what we perceive at first sight. You think it's light? Its pedestal is nevertheless made of terrazzo. You think it's fragile? Its preformed diffuser is however made of plastic (PET) and whose stark color sublimates the whole lamp, appreciated as much lighted as for the object itself.
Studio Thevoz-Choquet has reinterpreted an object whose shape could quickly become a classic in design: the bike lock. Putting forward the minimalist and functional aesthetics of it, the designers duo rebaptized the series The Locked Objects, allowing him to finally penetrate into a new universe, the one of the interior.
The design editor Scarlet Splendour, for its third participation in the Salone del Mobile, introduced a new collection which includes the very feminine series 88 Secrets, with remarkable finishes, designed by Nika Zupanc which was decidedly in the spotlight this year. 88 secrets for the 88 constellations we know... 2017?
