    Rabari Rug Collection by Doshi Levien for Nanimarquina.

    16th June

    I’ll preface this post by saying that this was one of my Top 5 favourite products from Milan Design Week. Yep, 100% – these are that good. Designed by Doshi Levien for Spanish rug maker Nanimarquina, Rabari rug collection evokes “the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India.” I am a real sucker for projects which clearly reference designers’ past experiences, memories, ethnic origins and iconography, particularly when brought into a contemporary context such as this. For me, this is an example of design authenticity at it’s best.



    Shoe Stool by Koichi Futatsumata.

    5th June

    I can’t say I ever thought we’d be blogging about a shoe stool here on Yellowtrace, if ya know what I’m sayin’. But when a piece of furniture is this beautiful, we are left with no choice. This gorgeous stool was created by Japanese designer Koichi Futatsumata for a fashion brand FUJITO as a limited edition item for the brand’s 10th anniversary. The stool was re-released by Opinion Ciatti and it was exhibited this year at Salone Internazionale del Mobile.



    MILANTRACE, Edizione 2014 // Invitation to the Milan Design Week Talk Series, Presented by Yellowtrace.

    28th April

    Hello, hello! Are you having a good Monday? Hope so, because I’m so freaking excited today all because of MILANTRACE, Edizione 2014 baby. HOORAY! I’ve been dying to share the details of this project for quite some time, which has been in the works since late last year, but the day has finally come. Allow me to explain a little further…



    Yellowtrace Presents // MILANTRACE, Edizione 2014 (#MDW14).

    25th April

    Dearest Yellowtracers, Team Yellowtrace is back from Milan Design Week once again. Holy moly – what an amazing trip. Today I wanted to share with you some of my favourite moments from the #MDW14. Also, I wanted to explain that this year we are taking things to the next level with our Milan report, also known as MILANTRACE, Edizione 2014.

    You see, with the proliferation of social media channels, blogs and websites, it feels like Milan Design Week gets washed over and forgotten in no time. Instagram pics are uploaded and #hashtagged, press releases are churned out, quick roundups are shared. But what about presenting it all in a cohesive fashion, addressing the highs and the lows of all the events, Milan’s culture and architecture, comprehensively exploring the sheer enormity and beauty of the World’s premier design event? Well, that’s where we come in.



    “Where Architects Live” Exhibition at Salone del Mobile // Milan 2014.

    4th March

    This year’s premier design event, Salone del Mobile in Milan, will be hosting a very special exhibition titled “Where Architects Live”. The exhibition will provide a unique peek inside the homes of serious design royalty – think Zaha, Libeskind, Chipperfield, Shigeru Ban etc. I know what you’re thinking – they really should have called it “Where STARchitects Live”. As much as it would’ve been really fun to see mediocre furniture and average homes (the reality of many designers and architects I know), I hate to disappoint you – these houses are pretty sexy. No popcorn ceilings, Ikea desks, stained rugs and hand-me-down sofas to be seen here. No sir. It’s all pretty dandy in the land(y) of rockstar architects. Let’s take a closer look.



    Design Installations & Other Special Moments During Salone del Mobile // Milan 2013.

    17th May

    Today I wanted to chat to you about some of the wonderful moments and installations that took place during the Milan Design Week. As you’ve probably gathered, an overwhelming amount of things happens in Milan during the Design Week. When compared to previous years, 2013 was definitely quieter and more modest due to the grim state of European (and global) economy. Having said this, there was still plenty to see and do. Let’s dive in…
