Before...
...and after!

Presentation of the Swedish design school Konstfack University College caught our eyes at Spazio Rossana Orlandi at this year Salone del Mobile in Milan

We present it here via our own play with the beautiful yellow and pink cards featuring most of the exhibited projects. 13 students were selected under the theme "Design for a Liquid Society" inspired by the Polish sociologist Zygmunt Bauman's phrase "liquid modernity," an observation that individuals are more and more involved in planning their lives and careers through short-term projects and episodes.

Highlights of the exhibition included CONST lamp by Ploypan Theerachai of Thinkk Studio, which is a contemporary take on the postmodernist colorful and crazy aesthetic. Assemblage of wood, marble and metal creates decorative yet functional desk object. Each part can not function without the another. Base, body and shape support each other and playful object is born.

Our favorite piece is also small conversation piece of furniture called Confession. Designed by Nick Ross, the Confession is the micro interior environment offering intimate space for quick meeting and speaking each other.

All the projects you can find on the website of Konstfack.

When we have stepped into the Era studio Apartment Gallery at Via Palermo in Milan, we have seen beautiful space with many beautiful products.

The presentation was work of the Japanese Karimoku New Standard furniture line in the collaboration with Tomás Alonso, TAF, Lucien Gumy, Big-Game, Scholten & Baijings, Teruhiro Yanagihara and Sylvain Willenz.

Simple wooden furniture and accessories looked brilliantly in the space of this raw apartment. Alongside Karimoku furniture, the stationary products from the new label Praxis, which shares love for the durable and sustainable design with the Japanese label, were also on the display.

We bring you whole atmosphere of the exhibition on our photo report.
