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.

The always-interesting blog Designboom has published a great post entitled, appropriately enough, “Piet Hein Eek Milan 2010” on the collection of new and past work by the Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek shown at Spazio Rossana Orlandi in Milan, in conjunction with the Salon del Mobile Milan 2010.  The show features some very good work in lighting, porcelaine, wood, and other materials which look at the concepts of recycling, unification, ethical production and sustainability.  Great ideas, good work, very good photos.
