Milan Design Week Trend Report

Check out our Milan Design Week trend report from Design Insiders by our Creative Director Dan Gillmore.

‘Milan Design Week 2022 has brought back the design community with atmosphere and creativity! Following the downtime, everyone has had time to create, the Design Week in Milan has been an opening to express creativity and to show everyone the new materials, products and designs they all have been working on.

From world renowned fashion brands to furniture designers there is a hub of activity with Milan turning into an immersive design
experience, full of interesting collaborations, innovations, and art installations to wow the visitors.

I walked the exhibition centre with its multiple halls full of furniture to Milan Centre where you found hidden inspiration in old
churches, palaces, and villas. It seemed whichever street you were in something else was there to draw your eye. Milan is back and
this time the brands really did go to town!

The highlight of the event has been the amazing installations created by the design brands, Missoni’s large rabbit in the ‘Welcome
Back Dreams’ exhibition,

The Art of Dreams by Porsche in Palazzo Clerici, Hermes Lightness structures, Tom Dixon’s ‘Twenty’ exhibition in Palazzo Serbelloni and the numerous design collaborations linking fashion and furniture.

These were inspirational and fun and were a needed injection of escapism to pull the design community back together again.’
