MOST AT MILAN DESIGN WEEK

MOST, by Tom Dixon, was one of the main attractions at the Milan Design Fair this year. It turned the National Museum of Science and Technology into a labyrinth of design.

Naturally, the first thing on display was some Tom Dixon lighting – I loved the shadows these Etched Copper Web Lights threw on the walls behind them.

Next up, fittingly in a room full of steam engines, was a chance to watch the Etch Shade being made and (albeit after a standing in line for a very long time) the opportunity to make your own miniature Tom Dixon chair, with your name etched onto it. It was all very noisy and very exciting!

I kept my chair flat so I could get it home safely, but here’s the full size version…

Studio TooGood and Nivea collaborated on La Cura, a white calming space with performance and a clay workshop, designed to a provide a visual antidote to the chaos of the Design Festival. We missed the actual sessions, but were allowed in to take a few snaps of what had been created earlier in the day.

Then it was upstairs to Designersblock, which lived up to its usual high standard. The location was stunning – balconies overlooking an internal courtyard that used to be part of a Monastery. And the design wasn’t bad either!

I liked this Hot Mesh Chair by Blu Dot

It might be something to do with my current obsession with yellow, but I loved SoftWall by Molo.

Made from honeycombed paper, it was incredibly tactile.

Again, it could just be my ongoing love of grey, but I thought these shelves from Destes were rather cool too… and ditto this Custhom screen.

Our trip to Milan was supported in part by Airbnb.com.
