Habitus Does Milan

Join the conversation as Habitus Deputy Editor, Nicky Lobo, talks themes and trends from Milan 2013.

It’s one thing to see the sights and lust after the latest products. But now that the heat from the Salone Internazionale del Mobile has died down (sort of), it’s time to reflect. Because it’s not enough to take in the visuals and the atmosphere on the ground – we need to understand how it will affect local residential design.

Along with an industry panel, Nicky Lobo and Fabio Fanuli, MD of Fanuli, will discuss themes and trends and how they will translate into Australian residential environments. The panel will include interior designers Alena Smith of Jackson Teece and Kate Hogan of Woods Bagot, and industrial designer Chris Hardy (who presented his work at Ventura Lambrate), to date.

Form, colour and materiality will be discussed – how it is being used and where it is headed in the future. As we look to the traditional centre of design in Europe, the panel will ask, what makes Milan the foremost design event in the world, and where does it look for inspiration?

The event will be held on Tuesday 7 May at the Fanuli showroom in Cremorne. To register your interest to attend, please contact liana@lsquaredink.com.au
