Salone Milano 2014 Interior Design Team Spotlight
“Design is in The Details”
I like to think of furniture designers as furniture architects and my experiences at iSalone this year only helped to solidify this thinking. As an interior designer, we rely heavily on the guidance of furniture to speak to a certain style, mood and ambiance. The photos below are a great example of how a furniture architect thinks beyond the use of a space and a piece.
One of my favorite learning experiences from the show was the constant encouragement to be adventurous and playful! For example, playful furniture that turns from a two-seater sofa to a single seat chair. But this is done in a very glamorous way while still maintaining function and design.
My mind was overcome with the challenges presented to normal design. The show this year was all about breaking the mold and encouraging designers to think outside of their comfort zone. Since the day we’ve come back to Miami, I have already started applying this adventurous way of thinking to our interior design projects.
