One of the names of the top interior designers is Patricia Urquiola.

Like its predecessor, Sonar showcases design skills, thanks to Laufen’s talent for attracting the industry’s best designers. Sonar is made of Laufen’s ultra-thin SaphirKeramik material, which boasts wafer-thin walls and tight-edge radii of 2 to 3mm. Urquiola tested the miracle material’s abilities even further by incorporating a three-dimensional texture for Sonar’s washbasin bowls’ external surfaces.

The Dimore Studio presented during Milan Design Week their new exhibition, Interstellar. This project presented the debut of Dimoremilano: the new brand that comprises furniture, fabric, object and outdoor collections by Dimorestudio. The shapes of this new collection are dry and robust as evidenced by their well-defined lines. The materials are aluminium, lacquers, brushed and polished steel, bronze and laminated surfaces and the colour used was black. Launched in a historical building of the Rationalism era, which unveiled the vision and the evolution of Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci’s galaxy. The new furniture collection was the protagonist for four divisions created by coral silk partitions – bedroom, dining room, office and living room – showcasing the firm’s creations in their fullest splendour.

Cassina is an Italian furniture luxury brand. During Milan Design Week, Cassina presented the Cassina Milan Showroom which was the epitome of The Cassina Perspective with an installation curated by the company’s Art Director Patricia Urquiola.

A drawing by Le Corbusier created for Chandigarh was developed in 3D, this drawing was the background for four videos that came to life to tell the story of the embracing Back-Wing armchair by Patricia Urquiola, the CAB family by Mario Bellini, the Cotone sofas by the Bouroullec brothers and the elegant Dress-Up! sofa by Rodolfo Dordoni.
Flou is an Italian furniture brand. One of its most recent projects included in the 2019 Novelties is the Double Bed KOI designed by Carlo Colombo. This is a double size bed with clean, sharp lines. The original and architectonic shape of the headboard, framed by the eye-catching metal structure that continues downwards to form the feet, is softened by the fabrics that have been skillfully stitched with vertical quilting. This decorative addition appears to elongate the bed and contributes to the creation of a design that is welcoming and sophisticated.
The Heritage Collection is one of the most recent projects of the Italian luxury brand Molteni. Molteni&C is re-examining its own history with an eye to the future. The 80! Molteni exhibition, the creation of the company’s historical archive and its recently inaugurated Molteni Museum have provided an opportunity for a revival, from the origins of modernity. The collection presents an enormous variety of products: armchairs, single units, chair, accessories, small tables and among others.

The MHC.3 is a Char, THE Miss chair, designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa in 1986. This year the Molteni&C Collection designed by Gio Ponti is enriched with the D.355.1 hanging bookcase.
During the Milan Design Week, the Italian brand presented an innovative product created with Philippe Starck. The partnership of the two of them and the 3D software company ‘Autodesk’ resulted in a chair with Artificial Intelligence. As the name says, the chair combines A.I. with a creative design.
