Milantrace Edizione 2015, Milan Design Week and Salone del Mobile Highlights | Yellowtrace

 

Dearest Yellowtracers,

It is with great pleasure that we kick off our Milan report, aka MILANTRACE Edizione 2015. Today I wanted to give you a little overview of some of the things we saw, and share Nick’s amazing photos that beautifully showcase the highlights from Milan Design Week & Salone del Mobile 2015. We have so much to share with you – my head is exploding with the excitement reminiscing about all the beautiful things we saw and did during the week.

So how was Milan this year? You know. Epic and Beyond Words. Truth be told, some bits were bad (although we managed to avoid most of those things), some old favourites disappointed while others delivered a stellar performance, quite a few new favourites were discovered (hooray!), and some moments were so good they moved me to tears. Yes, the trusted Dana cry-o-meter got a bit of a workout too, which is always a good sign.

I can’t wait to bring you a bunch of stories that will attempt to comprehensively cover the magnitude of Milan Design Week 2015, paying tribute to this extraordinary event that celebrates design like no other. Although it feels like the world is pressuring us to churn through digital reports as fast as possible these days, I refuse to buy into this mindless speed. Instead, we will do our best to give you more considered coverage at a slightly slower pace, in hope to share with you as much as possible.

If you are after the ultimate overview of Milan Design Week & Salone del Mobile 2015, you can come to one of our MILANTRACE talks in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. I will not only share with you what we talk about here on Yellowtrace, but so much more. These talks are brought to you in partnership with our dear friends at Living Edge and Walter Knoll, and in association with the Design Institute of Australia. Tickets are still available via the links below.

I sincerely hope to see you there!

Bacci,
Mama Yellowtrace x
