The design world turns to Italy this week for Salone Internazionale del Mobile, better known as the Milan furniture fair. Times staff writer David A. Keeps is on the scene, offering this sneak peek at some of the furniture, lighting and decorative accessories making their premieres at the show.
Demonstrating the lengths manufacturers will go to make a design statement during the event, Bisazza commissioned designer Jaime Hayon to create a full-size vintage-style plane covered with black and white glass mosaic tiles and detailed in white-gold-backed Bisazza tiles. This model shows Hayon's "Jet Set," an installation for Milan furniture week that sits in a hangar at the Superstudio Piu, an offsite exhibition space in Via Tortona, Italy.
