A stand I forgot to mention from Milan Furniture fair was a group called ‘Just Married’. This was a very fitting name considering these designers had travelled from Brittany in France. Anyway, they showed a lot of enthusiasm and determination to display their work. Three designers towed a caravan from Brittany to Milan, to show off there work. They parked the caravan on a prominent walk-way between exhibitions. In the back of the caravan were a number of different products. One was a cast vibrator with a relief print of Jesus on the cross! This was very brave considering the number of Catholics living in Milan! Anyway, I was just impressed by the initiative the ‘Just married’ design team showed, overcoming the expensive challenge of exhibiting at the Milan furniture fair.
Currently I am undertaking an internship in Utrecht, Netherlands with the renowned design team consisting of Tejo Remy + Rene Veenhuizen. Through this blog I plan to document my design experience in Holland.
