Managing to see all the amazing initiatives presented each year at Milan’s Salone del Mobile, is a challenge. There’s always something left out because one gets stuck in traffic or because it escaped from the meticulous schedule. For this reason, we have prepared a list of our last impressions: a selection of projects and events that we managed to see “just in time” and that might turn useful for all you design-curious foodies!
This season Seletti teamed up with Toiletpaper magazine, an art publication directed by Maurizio Catellan and Pierpaolo Ferrari, to create a series of curious kitchen utensils. The collection was presented in worldwide preview during the days of the fair, while the controversial publication celebrated design week with a lasagna-based private dinner prepared by Carlo Cracco.
On Friday, Officine Castiglioni presented BQ2, the new venture of five visionary enterpreneurs, who united their forces to create the perfect barbeque: a beautiful design and the latest technology where put together to create the best “machine” of the kind in circulation.
Last but not least, there where the numerous gigs and presences of all the “big names” of Italian food and design: The Food & Design circuit of RCS with three days of tastings, talks and show cooking, the food and wine walk in Porta Venezia with the support of Slow Food and the “omnipresence” of S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna across some of the most respected showrooms of the week, from Kartell to Cassina.
