Milan, Italy’s Design Week is the destination for those who want to be first to see the newest contemporary design trends. Architects, designers and retailers all converge with the latest furniture pieces and avant-garde home objects. Soft edges, pastels and lots of Art Deco inspiration dominated the show this year. Here’s a roundup of the coolest (and most out-there) creations from Milan Design Week 2018.
Designer and art director Patricia Urquiola created some of the most memorable pieces of the show. Her color selection and fluid lines were on-trend with the soft tones and Art-Deco-inspired vibe. Her collaboration of leather goods with Louis Vuitton for their Objets Nomades show were especially striking. Photography by Patricia Urquiola.
