Salone del Mobile, Milan, Italy

Share this post

The festival of the best of home furnishings design took place in Milan, Italy, a mecca of design, at the end of April after a decline of several years. It is undoubtedly the most important and prestigious design festival in one place on different platforms: from classic design to retrospective presentations and conceptual projects.

What kind of trends can we expect in interior design in the following years? And how did Czech designers contribute to the global scene?

Interior design trends

As far as materials are concerned, aluminium is gaining more ground; thanks to recycling, it takes many different shapes, forms and layers. This trend is confirmed by, among others, the Norwegian brand, Hydro, with its collection of experimental interior items made from recycled aluminium sections.

Fashion business icons keep influencing interior design increasingly and more intensively, which continues to be an obvious trend. As a result, Salone del Mobile featured installations by brands, such as Gucci, Hermés and Bottega Veneta. For example, Yves Saint Laurent introduced its version of plates by architect Gio Ponti for his Villa Planchart in Caracas. And if you want to know what this year’s trendy colour is, it is cocoa.

Award-winning Czech designers

Czech designers left an indelible mark on the fair as well. For instance, Ravak, with its oversize balloon wall by Vrtiška and Žák, presented its sanitary ware series. Other brands included Brokis with its presentation of 19 collections of lights (three new ones plus a new concept) and Ton, based in Bystřice pod Hostýnem, with its untraditional presentation of the “classic fourteen.” Lasvit was given the prestigious Fuorisalone Award for its Re/Creation installation presenting relief glass panels by designer Maxim Velčovský.

Words from our past clients

We have been cooperating with Philip & Frank brokers for a few years. Throughout that time it has been proved that it was a good choice. We are especially satisfied with their transparency and regular information about the progress of each project. At the same time we have always been in control of all decision-making. We will be happy to recommend them and their legal services to our friends and relatives. It was our pleasure warking with them.

While we were selling our flat, we approached the brokers of Philip & Frank who had been recommended to us. I was really satisfied and delighted. Their truly professional approach – meetings with us, organization of tours of the flat with clients and arranging the formal aspects of the sale, including cooperation with an excellent lawyer – was astonishing. I appreciate their competence and I recommend this real estate agency to other clients.

Thanks to the professionalism of Philip & Frank real estate brokers I learned that even purchasing a property can be a pleasant experience. Their thoroughness, reliability, helpfulness and kindness enabled us to concentrate only on the property. We were relieved of all the worries regarding the purchase and we could simply enjoy buying the flat. That is what you dream of but I would never have thought that it could come true. Thank you for your perfect services!
