Each April, designers from all of the world descend upon Milan to display their wares, from chairs to lamps and more. The bulk of it is market-ready furniture. But venture outside the official fairgrounds, and you’ll find a cornucopia of student exhibits, interactive installations, and conceptual products. Yours truly hit the pavement all week to bring you some of the best from Milan. (It likely goes without saying, but the magnitude of Milan Design Week means that we can’t see it all). Here’s a smattering of the impressive work I spotted, now updated to include the full week’s worth of traipsing through the city.
