‘Entre-deux’ by Konstantin Grcic for Azucena
has done it once again, offering us their own discerning and fabulous edit of the best of the extravaganza that was this year’s Salone del Mobile 2011 in Milan in a 218-image-strong truly excellent slideshow, here
As Wallpaper* puts it…
Once again, Salone mania was unleashed and the design world honed in on Milan. This year’s fair, which finished Sunday 17th April, mobilised hundreds of thousands design disciples off their Danish-modern couches back home and through the giant fairground’s gates, as well as key events across the city which included Shigeru Ban and Jean de Gastines’ Hermès Pavillion, the Rossana Orlandi gallery, Ventura Lambrate and, of course, the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition at the Brioni House.
Didn’t make it round to all the events? Fear not. We snapped away during the week to show you all the wonders the design world has to offer for 2011…
And take a look at all the rest of our Salone del Mobile 2011 Milan posts, here.

Pilar Viladas has written Part 2 of her Salone del Mobile (Milan Design Week, or Milan Furniture Fair to some) wrap-up, entitled, hardly coincidentally, “Milan Report | The Wrap-Up, Part II” in the T-Magazine (or is it The Moment?) section of The New York Times, highlighting some of (t)he(i)r favorites from this year’s outstanding, vast, offering. Among those favorites you’ll see, in the fine photos by Mattia Zoppellaro and others, Konstantin Grcic‘s discretely paranthetic folding screen, Entre Deux, above, Maria Volokhova‘s slightly disturbing Dolci Lacrime teapot, the seemingly beribboned Plaid Bench series by Raw-Edges, below, and others.
Plaid Bench series by Raw-Edges, shown at Dilmos, is made of interlocking benches in different colors
