The furniture design world is starting one of its biggest weeks of the year today in Milan. The biggest names in the business will be showing off what's new and beautiful in venues and shows of all sizes. In addition to the many hours I plan to spend at the Fiera I'm absolutely making time for a trip to EDIT - a Milan outpost of the popular London Design Week staple, Design Junction.
Here are just a few of the many things to see and do at EDIT:
Take a magical mystery design tour by bike:
The Japanese bike brand tokyobike will be organizing bike tours throughout the Brera Design District, originating at designjunction. According to the EDIT press release, "The tours will take riders on a 3 hour journey to mystery design destinations each day." The tours will run from Tuesday through Saturday from 10am – 1pm.
Have a bite in style:
There will be pop-up eateries and an outdoor cafe featuring custom counters designed by Material Lab, the London studio that provides expertise on the lastest innovations in architectural and design materials.
Get a little work done:
The "VIP" lounge at EDIT is a quiet place to take a break, have a conversation, check your email and update your instagram feed. It features decor that is a collaboration between Apartment 58 and the British furniture brand Modus.
And, of course, take in some new world-class design:
Here are just a few of the folks who will be exhibiting at EDIT - Per Soderberg, Utopia & Utility, Feliz, Mabeo, Atelier Areti, Case, Christopher Farr, Ercol and Kalmar Werkstäetten.
