Milano's Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2011

Milan has long been regarded as one of the international capitals of industrial and modern design, as well as one of the world’s most influential cities in fashion. The host of FieraMilano, Salone del Mobile and Milan Fashion Week, and the home of Teatro alla Scala and the iconic Milan Cathedral, the Milan’s steeped history in design makes it one of the most important hubs of creativity in the world.

Despite its common label as a furniture fair, Salone Internazionale del Mobile has become much more: most importantly, it has become a key event in the luxury calendar where furniture manufacturers and luxury brands look to showcase their creativity and innovation, and where the world’s most influential designers, journalists and professionals converge to discuss and analyse the latest technologies, materials and trends.

Your incognitio Expat reporter went to tour the exhibition yesterday and indulged in a world of luxury and design. Here are but a few impressions I wished to share with you.

Having been born in Copenhagen to a Danish mom and now in California, I still miss the European style and flair for furniture. The Scandinavians have so much creativity, as do the Italians.
