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.

Disney and Jobs

One of the most influential people I have come across the web is called Cristiano Dias. He is one of those guys that if were born in America would be globally famous. He recently wrote an article comparing Disney story of life to Steve Jobs’s. It’s a great article and I reckon it shows Jobs from a different perspective to those being explored in the mainstream media. The post is in Portuguese and you can find the whole article here.
