MILAN THE SALONE
wood, bamboo & pulp #milan2011
Wood, bamboo & pulp continued to be major materials of choice at various locations throughout the city.
This sustainable thread quietly wove its way through the city’s Fuori Salone events, notably in Gijs Bakker’s selection for Yii at the Triennale and the Design Academy Eindhoven’s impressive exhibition curated by Ilse Crawford.
Wood was even turned into a washable textile by young Academy graduate Lenneke Langenhuijsen, while cork was transformed by several innovative designers for Amorim and Experimenta Design at their Materia exhibition in the Brera. April 2011
