    Milan Design Week




    What’s in your kitchen?! We toured Salone del mobile and surrounding events to identify some of the most interesting kitchens with connected features and paid a visit to The Restaurant by Caesarstone and Tom Dixon.

    So much to see and so little time! We decided to put together a map of the hottest design districts and pinpoint amazing products and people we discovered. Check it out.

    We cover the story behind David Chipperfield’s Città delle Culture museum and gallery complex in Milan or “The War of the Floor.” Other goodies include newly released acoustics products, a focus on some of the most beautiful faucets by Axor and others and more. Don’t miss a continuation of our In Time piece with interviews of designers in Milan during the fair.
