Design Matters!

The other day I went to “Design Matters” an overview of the designfair Salone Internazionale del Mobile, which was presented at warehouse “De Zwijger” in Amsterdam.

The Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy, is the design event of the year during which at least 3.000 designers and brands from all over the world present over 10.000 new products. This event is always so huge and only a few days, this years from 17th to 22nd April, that it is impossible to view everything alone.

Design Matters was also an overview made by a few experts and/or journalists who went to the Salone, by presenting their favorite pieces and impressions. I can also state there was a lot of self-promotion.

I liked the fact that there was also a blogger that got up on the stage to give the opinion. The design critic Jeroen Junte, who was leading the presentation, was also a good speaker and I enjoyed listening to him.

The picture is from the piece that was definitely my favorite that got presented/promoted that night. It is a bird feeder called “Dish of Desire” by Frederik Roijé from New Duivendrecht.
