The world’s most prestigious furniture fair, the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, in Milan, Italy, starts in two days! And we’ve got three Inhabitat correspondents on their way to Milan to scope out the green design on this year’s international scene. Cate Trotter, Ariana Mouyiaris and new Inhabitat writer/photographer Antonia Halse are headed to Salone to bring back the best photos and coverage of the most interesting new furniture, lighting, products and presentations from Milan – all through a sustainable lens of course. We are hitting the ground running and, starting Wednesday this week, Inhabitat will be your source for green design at Milan Salone 2008!
We’ve been pouring over previews and looking forward to bringing the best of Milan back to Inhabitat. Sneak peeks we found Inhabitat-worthy were Light Emitting Wallpaper by Jonas Samon and Ryan Frank’s Zig Bamboo Shelf. Both of these designs, and many, many more are on our radar and we are on the edge of our seats with anticipation to get the live scoop on sustainable, eco-minded appearances at this year’s event.
We are thrilled to bring you extended Milan coverage this year! We have lots in store from Salone 2008, so stay tuned – Salone Internazionale del Mobile gets underway in two days and we’ll be there from start to finish!
