Salone Del Mobile

One of the most disheartening patterns to emerge throughout the epidemic was the furniture industry’s tendency to play it safe when it came to the designers they chose to collaborate with. Companies were staying with names that were proven, tested, and bankable to ensure they stayed afloat during the financial crisis due to an unwillingness to take risks. While this was understandabl, it produced a worrisom situation in which aspiring designers found it more difficult than ever to get into the business.

With Milan set to host the Salone Del Mobile and Fuorisalone on a scale not seen in over three years, now appears to be the right time to shift the narrative. A slew of bright individuals and studios are competing alongside the major brands, upsetting the industry’s existing quo. They’re reimagining what it means to be a designer in the twenty-first century by pioneering new approaches to technology, materials, and interaction.

LA-based Sam Klemick is no stranger to the design world, but she has spent the last ten years focusing on the fashion sector, creating for brands such as Paige, Rag & Bone, and Free People. When she took an evening class to learn how to turn wood on lathe in 2019, something changed. She’s swiftly established herself as one of the hottest new names in furniture design, mixing her skills in woodcraft and textiles in unespected ways.

She creates handcrafted works using abandoned things and materials that beg to be touched thanks to their seductive, bulging forms. Klemick makes her Milan premiere at Alcova, The Garden, with an outdoor installation. She’ll create an ethereal environment with draped fabrics and duvet-style cushions, inspired by dreamy films.

Anna Maria Øfstedal Eng

Despite the fact that Norway has no shortage of outstanding designers, Anna Maria Øfstedal Eng’s work is in a class by itself. Her work defies the necessity for linearity in furniture with uneven, tactile, and often knobbly shapes. Øfstedal Eng creates each of hr pieces by hand, typically using a chainsaw to carve wood from the woodlands near her Fjellhamar studio.

Her power derives from the way she approaches each object as a sculpture, drawing inspiration for her organic forms from everything from rough cliffs to gnarled tree roots. Two of Øfstedal Eng’s aluminum designs are already produced by Ferm Living: the Morf Sculpture and the Rotben End Table. Following her participation in Milan, where she’ll present her striking ash-wood Vride Bench as part of the Norwegian Presence exhibition, Matter we’re likely to see a lot more of her.

Duyi Han, a Shanghai-based artist and designer, found fruitful ground in the virtual design realm that arose during the COVID-19 pandemic. Han’s work is a visual feast of both digital and real spaces and objects, exploring subjects such as cultural history, personal identity, and health. Han has a background in architecture. His talent is in his ability to transfer the same enthusiasm and inspiration that he uses in his virtual ideas to the real world.

These technicolor worlds feel like a tantalizing glimpse of a soon-to-arrive future, especially now that the metaverse has arrived. Han will occupy a space in Alcova during Salone Del Mobile to present his project, Ordinance of the Subconscious Treatment. This proposal, which combines a traditional Chinese residence with components of neuroaesthetic treatment, appears to have the potential to both calm and excite.

TAKT Project

It’s no surprise that Satoshi Yoshiizumi worked for Nendo before establishing his Tokyo-based studio, TAKT Project, in 2013. His art has the same lively, innovative spirit as his predecessors, but with a unique twist. The studio calls itself a “design think + do tank”, implying a hands-on, multidisciplinary, and research-driven approach. It no only combines design commissions with self-initiated proejcts, but it also uses technology to overlay technology over actual items, often to dramatic effect.

Visitors to Milan in 2019 may recall the project Glow Grow, in which TAKT Studio began an investigation into how LED lights might simulate ice developing in resin. Yoshiizumi’s team will display Equilibrium Flower in a solo exhibition in the 5VIE district this time. It seems to be equally enthralling as it explores the possibilities of thermally hardening fabric.
