Day 3 at the Salone: New Talent from the SaloneSatellite, Part 2 of 2.

Here are more of what we loved at SaloneSatellite this year, both from Scandinavian designers.

Boa Shelving/Storage by Tuyo Design

This is the shelving that I would love to have in my home, and I’d actually go to Norway to pick them up if I have to. It is a clever way to display books without bookends, wine without wine racks (although they are already looking for an even better solution to store wine) and more. The felt strips may be adjusted to accommodate more (or less) things as desired. Two strips of felt may be connected from one shelf to another to create more storage options.

My Granddaughter’s Cabinet by Lisa Hilland

This is a series of pieces that Swedish designer Lisa Hilland created called “My Granddaughter’s Cabinet”, which was inspired by family treasures. The piece pictured below is of the same name as the collection, and is a birch cabinet with oak, cherry and birch veneer for contrasting patterns.

Day 3 at the Salone: New Talent from the SaloneSatellite, Part 1 of 2.

SaloneSatellite has always been one of my favorite parts of the Fair. This is when young designers have the opportunity to showcase their designs on the world stage during the Salone del Mobile, the largest gathering in the world in furniture design. This year we continue to see the talent displayed. Here are our picks for this year:

Seasons by Nao Tamura.

These are silicon serving plates that are designed in the shape of leaves and can be easily rolled-up for storage, or perhaps even displayed as art. It’s simplicity doesn’t require much more explanation to appreciate. This was the winner this year at SaloneSatellite.

Folding Chair by Plicio.

A simple chair that just needs to be folded with a few easy steps and connected at the base with a rope to keep its shape. The chair when stored flat is only 6mm thick.

Perpetual Illusion Clock by Delphine Frey.

This aluminum clock requires a closer look. There are layers positioned to spin on top of each other, giving an interesting effect while telling time. It definitely caught our eye while we browsed through the many designs at the show. Her designs have been displayed by Christofle as well as Nespresso.
