In April 2023, the BDA team attended Milan Design Week, including coverage across the Salone Del Mobile expo. Immersed in the energetic buzz, we discovered the latest innovations in interior design, furniture, lighting and homeware. With this free report, sample some of the key takeouts and themes from our Macro and Home trend analysis.

SolidNature & OMA, Beyond The Surface

SolidNature displayed a wonderland exhibition at Milan Design Week, ‘Beyond The Surface’ designed by Ellen Van Loon and Giulio Margheri of OMA.

Set in the basement of the Neo-Romanesque Casa Maveri, visitors ventured into a parallel universe below ground, and into the realm of sleep. The exhibition included a series of illusory installations responding to themes such as ‘Confrontation’, ‘Revelation’ and ‘Patience’ – each exhibiting various approaches to designing with natural stone.

Loewe, Loewe Chairs at Salone Del Mobile

At Milan's Palazzo Isimbardi courtyard, Loewe presented a collection of playful chairs that showcased experimentation with unconventional materials and colours.

The designs featured handwoven materials by expert craftspeople from around the world, to reinvent and transform everyday objects into one-of-a-kind pieces. The exhibition demonstrated how weaving and embellishment can be tools for avant-garde design, allowing Loewe to reinvent humble objects.
