Salone Internazionale del Mobile – Milano 2012

On the run for more than 50 years, once a year of course,  the International Milan Design Fair, has always been one of the most awaited events for designers all over the world. This time we can find in many of the pieces shown a mix of styles and lots of experimenting, large traces of  ‘fake’ personalization and inbuilt self portraits. I have to say I get a little too cautious with this kind of thing and would have to say that only a few pieces have really impressed me. All the pictures here are from the Gizmag. You’ll be able to find more of it on the original post, here I’ve selected those which are in a way connected to what I think is the spirit of the blog.

New MTV Summer identity by Rachel Falkenbach

Raquel Falkenbach is one of those very talented people whose works are very influential are a milestone in design. One of her latest projects, alongside Rio de Janeiro based BEELD, was a brilliant piece for Brazilian MTV. Their new summer identity is just amazing, vibrant palette and illustrations that resemble the sea depth, the new identity is beyond doubt young and innovative. Definitely a thumbs up! (via ideafixa)
