Salone del Mobile and the associated events that make up Milan Design Week are the industry's annual showcase for innovative design products and ideas. If the official Salone itself feels as though it’s on the point of dissolving into one vast sofa ocean of homogenous, if exquisitely upholstered, home furnishings, seek out instead the always-inspiring Spazio Rossana Orlandi, Moroso’s adventurous installations and limited edition works at Gallery Nilufar. And For fresh ideas and theoretical propositions, head to Ventura Lambrate, which has overtaken Zona Tortona as the rightful home of design’s cutting edge.

Salone del Mobile and Milan Design Week 9-14 Apr, Milan Fairgrounds, Rho, Milan. Trade only 9-12 Apr, Public 13-14 Apr.
