Sharing an apartment with four Dutch girls, all bloggers and my friend Allan from Bungalow5 was fun, we had a brilliant time and stayed for 6 days, to see as much as possible, walk way to much, and enjoy the city, it’s bars and restaurants and each others company. I love to hang out with laid back people who are dedicated to design but not obsessed to see everything, as I know it is impossible and you will always miss things…. plus getting some sun and coffee on a terrace is really important as well.
MENU at the Salone del mobile
At the fair I had a look at some of my favourite brands like the Menu stand, designed by Norm Architects where the new collection and specially made pieces in limited edition colours of the Modernism Reimagined collection were showcased on a central podium and in four areas for different types of living, office, bar, kitchen, living room, dining area and a greenery where an updated shelving system in white gave place to many plants.
I got a little tour by Bjarne himself who showed me all the latest additions to the collection like the daybed and a first sneak peek at the new bathroom furniture, and we had a nice chat about the different design, coffee and hands full of chocolate for on the road. My favourite piece must have been the black marble block table that will be added to the collection hopefully soon.
