Fresh from Milan
Enjoy our pick of the freshest product launches from Alki, Casamania, Desalto, Diesel Living, Golran and Moroso at the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Alki showcased the depth of their heritage with new products including the Kea range of oak and wrought iron tables as well as the Zumitz collection of woven chestnut wood accessories.
True to their unconventional form, Casamania launched Lofoten, a modular furniture system made of linked seating, backrest, shelving and table units designed by Luca Nichetto.
Desalto presented a number of new products, notably the Ike family of chairs and tables, inspired by Japanese flower arrangement, as well as oval and occasional table versions of the multiple award winning Clay table.
Diesel Living impressed with an immersive display at the Salone including a new garden furniture range from Moroso. Perfect for expressing the Diesel attitude outdoors.
Golran debuted the Paralleli collection of rugs with striking designs that bring together motifs from multiple sources, from Baroque to abstract expressionism.
At the Salone all eyes were on the debut of 8 new collections from Moroso including designs from Patricia Urquiola, whose Belt seating was the pick of the new sofa launches.
