Carl Hansen & Søn @ Milan Design Week 2018

Carl Hansen & Søn invites you to escape the everyday at their Milan Retreat. A place to awaken our senses and reconnect with the space around us.

In the world of today, we are over-connected and overwhelmed. The lines between work and home life are becoming increasingly blurred, and our new dependence on technology has made us afraid of ‘switching off’. Our conscious minds are never allowed to be still and the idea of contemplation is rejected, often confused with boredom.

So how can we nourish our soul and how can the spaces we inhabit act as a retreat to quiet racing minds? How can they offer balance? How does our environment affect our ability to be inspired, to be creative or calm? For the Milan Furniture Fair 2018 Carl Hansen & Søn introduces the Milan Retreat – inviting you to escape, get away from the distractions of the city and revel in a moment of peace.

Carl Hansen & Søn chair at Milan Design Week 2018

A retreat is defined as a quiet or secluded place in which one can rest and relax: a refuge, haven or sanctuary. It may be somewhere we leave our homes to go to, but more and more, we still want to feel ‘at home’ in this place – somewhere to ‘retreat’ to without leaving. If modern escapism is to distract our minds with endless social media or the next stimuli available to us, then we are perhaps disconnected from the environment and objects around us.

The Carl Hansen & Søn philosophy is anchored by timelessness, comfort and craftsmanship and through our Milan Retreat, we explore how space, design and tactility can work together to create a form of escape. A place to awaken our senses and reconnect with the space around us. One where we can find time for personal reflection or inspiration, and communally to reconnect with loved ones, or meet new friends.

Designed as a destination for a weekend getaway, our retreat is as comfortable and familiar as home, but with a more tailored focus on luxurious features, warm materials and contemporary design anchored by crafted detail. Architecturally, curved walls create a feeling of being enveloped, which floor to ceiling windows in key communal areas support the connection to nature and its sense of peace.

Soft, inviting colors including dark burgundy, russet, emerald green, warm greys and earthy neutrals mix with rich woods, textiles and tiles, accented by an eclectic collection of objects that add intrigue and invite conversation. Rooms are mostly open plan, sectioned over multiple levels to create a change of pace from space to space. By prioritizing warmth, comfort and tranquility throughout, it is a place that encourages hibernation and escapism.


The open kitchen was designed to put connection at its heart. Guests can mingle and chat, helping themselves to drinks and snacks from the central island, sitting informally on Wegner bar stools. Meals are eaten communally on the large Børge Mogensen Hunting Tables, flanked by PK1wicker chairs; spaces to share good food and good stories. A dedicated casual seating area allows guests to linger after dinner, talking late into the night on Wegner lounge chairs


A cozy lounge embraces hygge with a choice of lounge chairs, sofas and daybeds on which to curl up with a book or have the ultimate luxury of the time-poor: a chance for mindful meditation. A central fireplace creates a soothing atmosphere, complemented by the warm woods, plush leathers and luxurious fabrics of the furniture, from the Kaare Klint sofa to Hans J. Wegner’s iconic Wing Chair.

The lounge adjoins the library, a flow of space softened by partitioned walls, allowing guests to relax in the company of others, or find their own hideaway in which to rest and recuperate. The library offers a retreat into literature, creating a quiet space for guests to escape into a favorite book, write at the Arne Jacobsen Society Table or enjoy pre-dinner cocktails served from crystal ware on the Mogens Koch bookcase.


Our spa and wet room is a sanctuary: cocooning guests in tiled and wood paneled curved walls. Moments of solitude and peace can be experienced in carefully selected chairs, including Kaare Klint’s Safari Chairs and Propeller Stools.

An outdoor partially-enclosed terrace promotes the virtues of fresh air and highlights the natural flow between indoors and outdoors. It is the perfect space for the modernist Bodil Kjær Indoor/Outdoor series, conceived to complement the aesthetic and functional interplay between buildings and outdoor space. At the same time, each piece offers the highest degree of comfort; ergonomically designed and ideal for both relaxing and socializing.


A retreat from daily life and work doesn’t mean a retreat from creativity, thoughts or inspiration. The first floor has a choice of communal areas in which to work, exchange ideas and have the mental and physical space to reflect. One of Carl Hansen & Søn’s newest collections is showcased here: the Preludia Series by American designer Brad Ascalon. The series focuses on functionality, quality, comfort and aesthetics, designed with a human-centric approach, making it ideal for a flexible, versatile environment.

At the end of the day, guests can retreat to the film room, a raised platform tucked behind the open kitchen. Here, Ole Wanscher’s comfy Colonial Chairs and Footstools are the unassuming yet timeless focus; beautiful, stable chairs with a simple and refined expression, ideal for a long sit down for guests wanting to escape into their imaginary film world.

Discover our design novelties presented at this year’s Milan Fair, including Hans J. Wegner’s CH71 lounge chair and CH72 sofa, as well as the Indoor-Outdoor Series by Bodil Kjær.

New Chair @ Milan Design Week 2018

MAD Architects Presents “Gu” Chair – Collaboration with Sawaya & Moroni During Milan Design Week

“Gu” is Ma Yansong’s contemporary interpretation of the traditional wooden armchair. Drawing reference from skeletal structures (“gu” translates to “bones” in Chinese), the design’s joints create a network of sinuous forms – similar to that of connective fibrous tissue.

Thus, each surface of the chair fuses into one another, forming elegant seams that mutate from something natural into something more futuristic, making it seem more like a growing organism than a chair.

Walter Knoll launch new furniture at the Salone in Milan

Walter Knoll has launched the Onsa Chair by Mauro Lipparini and the Ishino Table by Daï Sugasawa at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile (Hall 7, Stand A27/A31) in Milan.

The new EOOS Bundle sofa, the 375 dining chair and the Moualla Table are also on display.

Design is under the spotlight in Milan. Every year in April, on the occasion of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the city opens the doors of its fairgrounds in Rho, its palazzos, and its gardens to introduce new and innovative furniture. Here, at the world’s most important furnishing and design fair, Walter Knoll is presenting its “Premieres 2018”: quality interiors for living and contract.

Masterly craftsmanship, finest materials, awe-inspiring shapes – each new product matches the company’s DNA. Two new designers premiere their creations for Walter Knoll: Mauro Lipparini with the Onsa Chair – a relax chair balancing aesthetics and comfort, and Daï Sugasawa with the Ishino Table whose organically hewn, pebble-like bodies look as if they’ve been dipped in liquid metal.

Also new and debuting in Milan: the Bundle Sofa designed by EOOS, which takes the word softness to a whole new level. The Moualla Table from Neptun Ozis – a solid wood table with an unusual yet elegant silhouette. New in the successful 375 range are the variants with seat and back shell covered in a combination of fabric and soft nappa leather as well as the 375 Chair. There’s more. New carpets made of 100% finest Chinese silk, elaborately dyed and hand-knotted, and new carpet cushions – the Badawi Pillows – extend the “Legends of Carpets” collection.

New fabrics and leathers have been added to the Walter Knoll family expanding the philosophy “Natural Elegance”. Inspired by the colors and shapes of nature – like the fine, soft desert sand of the Sahara and its distinctive rocky formations – the materials highlight the value of the products. Elegant, tactfully appealing qualities in cultivated colors as a sign of the Zeitgeist and today’s lifestyle.

BASE Milano at Design Week 2018

A critical exploration of city making, smart cities and new forms of city planning and urban regeneration, at the heart of Fuorisalone in the ex-Ansaldo complex:

> “Trouble Making. Who’s making the city?” exhibition curated by Raumplan

> Unveiling of BASE’s brand new services and facilities: neighbourhood portineria (concierge), shared officina (workshop) and regenerated cortile (courtyard)

> spaces under renovation are set to double BASE’s total area to 12,000m2

April 17 – 22 2018
Milano, Via Bergognone 34

Tuesday April 17 opening party with live set organised by Threes

To mark Design Week 2018, BASE Milano – one of Europe’s most important regeneration projects – is offering a critical exploration of city making and new forms of urban transformation.

Everything kicks off with “Trouble Making. Who’s making the city?”, an exhibition commissioned by BASE and curated by Raumplan about mass phenomena and the virtual networks which are changing the face of our cities. By looking at the work of artists, photographers and videomakers, the exhibition will provide an interpretation of several group phenomena at work in the urban sphere: from the boom in courier work, to the new circuits of mass tourism, and the processes set off by the sharing economy, home-sharing and do- it-yourself information online.

Some of the exhibited projects are: Calibro, Donato Ricci and Òbelo, who will analyse photos of Airbnb accommodations, pinpointing the cornerstones of a conforming aesthetic which characterises the interiors of the houses and rooms for rent on the platform; Delfino Sisto Legnani’s photos will feature devices such as Amazon buttons, remote controlled smart locks for parcel delivery; Louis De Belle and Giacomo Traldi’s project will lay out the routes that tourist buses chart around cities, and Louis De Belle will also present a photographic investigation into food delivery couriers, created together with Nicolò Ornaghi; Giga Design Studio and Superinternet will offer a look at the consequences that the traffic of online information has on the urban realm. The exhibition will end with a sculpture by Ayr which will incorporate one of Achille Castiglioni’s most famous products.

Right in the midst of these city planning study cases, BASE Milano will present its very own project to the public. This newly regenerated 6,000m2 space brings the total BASE area to 12,000m2, with brand-new services and facilities: a fresh concept of the neighbourhood portineria, a shared renovated in-house officina, and a cortile transformed from an industrial loading area into a cultural entertainment venue for the city.

On the eve of its third Fuorisalone, BASE once again proves its status as a fixed landmark for innovation, creativity and culture, offering ample inspiration as a model of urban regeneration: a public space, managed by a private, self-financing, non-profit social enterprise, the result of a consortium of charities and private businesses, which lives in the market place and involves a whole range of cultural players from the city in its eclectic and participatory programme.

An ecosystem in continuous transformation, it is one of a kind, and, at the same time, part of a greater process of transformation affecting a large number of metropolitan areas in the West, where the retreat of manufacturing is freeing up space for new industries and urban facilities.

The choice to investigate urban and regenerative processes springs from the evolutionary phase that currently sees BASE occupying the role of Learning Machine: a machine for learning, a permanent training workshop devoted to the needs of the city, the neighbourhood and professionals employed in the creative industries. And yet it is also a machine that learns, a huge organism with the ability to establish a dialogue between different creative communities so as to absorb, share and transform each other’s content and contaminations.

Sounds of regeneration
In fitting with the themes chosen for this year’s Fuorisalone, the week’s music line-up is a celebration of musical scenes and subcultures that have an impact on urban transformation.

Every evening features music at aperitivo hour in the newly transformed ex-Ansaldo cortile (weather permitting), which from an industrial loading area has been transformed into a social, cultural venue, with a bar and dancefloor. The nights then carry on inside the former industrial building.
The sound profile comes courtesy of Radio Raheem, Milan’s independent online radio station who are bringing their line-up of music and interviews with key players from the world of design and beyond to the Ex-Ansaldo’s Portineria.

Italgraniti Group: First Flagship Store Opening – Salone del Mobile di Milano 2018

The first Italgraniti Group Flagship Store opens in Milan

Milan, February 2018 – Italgraniti Group, a dynamic and innovative company that has been the undisputed protagonist of the ceramic industry for over twenty years, has chosen Milan for the opening of its first Flagship Store, master expression of the company’s technological evolution, aesthetic culture and technical excellence of “made in Italy”.

Italgraniti has always been synonymous with highly technological porcelain stoneware, an exceptional, resistant material suitable for interior and exterior covering with precision and absolute beauty, which is the result of decades of experience and constant investments accompanied by a long-sighted look towards the future.

Italgraniti Group Flagship Store at Salone del Mobile di Milano 2018:
Italgraniti Group Flagship Store at Salone del Mobile di Milano 2018

The space, designed by Centro Stile Milano, an architectural studio which the company has been collaborating with for several years, will be inaugurated during Salone del Mobile 2018 and located at number 21 of the central Via Statuto, one of the city’s best places to host the excellence of Italian furniture.

The exhibition space, in 165 square meters, on two levels, will be dedicated to the new collections designed for the architectural panorama and contemporary interior design, but also a place to create relations, meeting and experimentation around new decorative languages, close to the designer and to the final consumer to whom Italgraniti will propose an innovative way of conceiving and using ceramics.

In order to achieve all this, to welcome the public, there will be the new Mega project, the majestic slabs of porcelain stoneware that reach the size of 160×320 cm with a thickness of only 6 mm, interpreting the most exclusive marbles, the finest stones and the authentic energy of metals. By freeing the surfaces from the installation grid, the new slabs give to the space the feeling of expansion with a strong visual impact and, thanks to the minimum thickness, they are easy to use even in the realization of furniture and furnishing accessories such as doors, tables, work tops, bathroom and kitchen tops, shower trays… without drawing the line to the freedom of expression.

In addition, to connect with the new edition of Eurocucina, Mega will be used in the creation of two compositions, which will be protagonists of the new space: a kitchen top with the metal base coordinated with a tool cabinet, an open bathroom with shower and a cabinet with the sink completely made in porcelain stoneware. The result will be extreme aesthetic beauty and high quality, for any type of environment.

Beside the “Mega project” the new Metaline collection will be presented, inspired by the expressive potential of metal surfaces in which the material draws new aesthetic proposals. The porcelain stoneware of this collection combines, as a matter of fact, the high industrial technology with a meticulous research on materials, interpreting at best the new requirements of contemporary architecture.

On the other hand, with Marble Experience, the company will revive the charm of marble through a careful selection of the most refined effects, constant technological innovation and the search for the most exclusive materials for the design of unique surfaces.

An area will also be dedicated to the latest collections that evoke the natural essence of wood, designed to create warm and welcoming spaces with a contemporary feel and a vintage warm and natural mood.

An internal staircase will lead to the mezzanine where a work area is set up to offer professionals and final public all the tools necessary to get to know the company better, the excellence of its products and the efficiency of the service offered.

The company’s first Flagship Store aims to be a showcase of the continuous passion, research and innovation that have always characterized the group’s history, capable of developing performance surfaces that are ideal for interior and external covering with absolute precision and beauty and satisfying, and often anticipating, the needs of the market.

As part of the Inhabits program at Milan Design Week 2018, the agrAir project by Piuarch outlines the elements which will hopefully be valued for living in the future – lightness, luminosity, careful use of resources, dissolution of contrasts between interiors and outdoors, between natural and artificial spaces – in a balanced relationship between earth and air. These ideas will also be repeated on the rooftop garden of Piuarch’s office, thus defining a synergic network at Fuorisalone.
