The Return from Milan 2012
Maya Dvash / May 09 2012

Returning from Milan is not always easy, and we are envious of anyone who manages to formulate their impressions, discover vogues, and share with such speed:

SALONE DEL MOBILE 2012: The Design Week That Was / Jacob Peres

One week, thousands of spectacles, hundreds of people, encounters - most of them fleeting. Once in a while one image pierces your eyes and makes you linger, just for a moment. You stand still and look.

One such moment occurred at the LIXIL exhibition at SuperStudio - Zona Tortona, by Japanese curator Kenya Hara:

Another occurred at an exhibition by Israeli designer Ron Gilad at Dilmos Gallery.
