Milan Design Week 2018

Milan Design Week 2018

Each year we count down the seconds to our annual trip to Disney World for adults in the design industry, Milan Design Week. It’s not only a special week in time where an entire metropolitan city transforms into a microcosm of the global design community, but a place to spot upcoming trends, share new ideas, connect with old friends and meet new ones (literally) crossing a street. 

We laughed, we cried, we discovered the brightest concepts and new talent in furniture design and immersive design installations, we partied in secret clubs designed by the likes of design legends such as Studio Pepe and India Mahdavi, we ate duck and drank champagne with monumental architects and designers at Nilufar Depot and someone from the design industry may have left Bar Basso pregnant. Not only did Milan fuel us with inspiration for the next 12 months, it left us utterly exhausted … which may or may not be the reason this article is like 2 weeks late. 

You may or may not have seen our live coverage on our instagram stories entitled 'Les Meufs du Design' by me, Kristen de la Vallière, and New York based design expert, Julia Haney-Montañez. With everyone taking design so god damned seriously, we thought we'd make fools of ourselves for your viewing enjoyment, to serve you a side of entertainment while discovering this year's trends. Hope you enjoyed it... By the way, no, I do not actually have a thick French accent like this IRL.

After digesting all of the incredible installations, pieces, designers, and concepts we discovered during that epic week in April, we came to the conclusion that there were too many gems for one article. Follow along in a four-part series of the best of Milan Design Week 2018 below !
