Sharpei by Massimiliano Adami is a beech chair covered in folds of gobelin tapestry fabric. The name refers to a wrinkled Oriental breed of dog, the Shar-pei.
Sometimes it feels as though Dutch design dominates the fair, and last night was no exception at the opening party for the TuttoBeNe exhibition. Presenting work from 28 young designers, the show was full of colorful whimsical objects, many made from recycled materials. The exhibition format was tight as usual and if you’re here, make sure you pick up a copy of the TuttoBeNe newspaper.
