Milan Design Week 2013

by designspace | 11.04.13

The 52nd edition of Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013 is officially over in three days and no (!) we won’t be coming back from Milano. It seems that this year we had better things to do with Design in Tel Aviv.

It’s been a long time since we want to share the upcoming project we are working on, and now we can! Fresh Paint will hold its first design fair – Fresh Design, alongside the art fair – Fresh Paint 6 and will present selected projects by Israeli designers, galleries, leading brands and design shops.

Constantly on the move and on the lookout for the best new creations, we thought we should share the best of design we saw as well as promising Israeli designers present in Milan this year. Enjoy!

‘Mirage’ by Tokujin Yoshioka for Italian company Lema.

A shimmering collage of mirrored plates designed by renowned Japanese designer, Tokujin Yoshioka. Lined side by side, each panel is able to be manipulated and arranged at various positions and angles. It is a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional mirror manufacturing, merging the disciplines of art and design in one cohesive piece.


Israeli designer  Nir Meiri will be exhibiting at Spazio Rossana Orlandi. He will be part of Fresh Design as well  in Tel Aviv.

Marine light  is inspired by the sea.
Through the unconventional use of seaweed as a main material for a domestic environment, the product plays on the tension between the artistic and the commercial.
Ancient cultures have appreciated and utilized seaweeds for different uses. Today, seaweeds are cultivated and harvested on a commercial scale, as a result of a growing interest driven by environmental concerns.

Top-heavy chairs by Swedish studio, Claesson Koivisto Rune, are currently on show at Milan’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile.

Israeli designer Itay Ohaly will be represented at Spazio Rossana Orlandi too with his new collection Unpacking. We are glad to share that the winner of the 2013 Frame Moooi Award  is The Impulsive furnishing Unit we shared here by Christian Fiebig (Germany), Itay Ohaly (Israel) and Thomas Vailly (France). Itay will be part of the greenhouse at Fresh Design in Tel Aviv.
