SINGAPORE (June 11): The annual Milan Design Week showcases the best in furniture, lighting and home furnishings. Hundreds of brands and designers converged in Milan from April 17 to 22 to display the coming home decor trends for the coming year. One outstanding brand was Zanotta, which collaborated with international designers to come up with a new collection of chairs and sofas that turn a house into a home.

In total, five new products were launched: the Louise armchair by Philippe Nigro, a visual silhouette based on the assembly of wooden components; the Elipse chair by Patrick Jouin, a witty, empathic item; the Hiro sofa by Damian Williamson, marked by an essential, contemporary design; and two products from Ludovica+Roberto Palomba — the Kim sofa, a soft volume raised off the ground; and Noli, an archetypal crafted Italian chair revisited in the essential quality of its elements and clarity of form.

Zanotta also worked with past collaborators such as Achille Castiglioni and Carlo Mollino, who produced works with an updated range of fabrics, finishes, materials and colour palettes for the collections already in the catalogue.
