In this final installment of new and exciting products showcased in Milan, we bring you some of our favourite discoveries from around the fair – ideas and innovations to watch out for:

The Chankley Bore prototype by Maarten Baas for Established&Sons

‘The Salone del Mobile will see the launch of three Limited edition pieces by Baas. Each piece of the collection is work in progress, and gives an insight into the Maarten Baas exhibition being held at the Established & Sons LIMITED gallery during Frieze Art Fair in October 2008′

D/A Clock by Alvin Aronson

‘This object plays on the common LED-display digital clock with physical segments that slowly fade in and out of a white surface. The D/A Clock introduces new characteristics to the digital mediation of time: a physical dimension and intermediate states – the time between 0 and 1.’

Shade Collection by Front

‘Sketched pieces of furniture, hand drawn by Front, like materialized illustrations.’

Jet Set by Jamie Hayon for Bisazza

‘A setting reminiscent of a hangar, totally atypical and chic, hosts a sophisticated “fantasy” aeroplane with a decidedly surreal shape, decorated with white gold mosaic tiles, leather inserts and featuring a neat lounge with padded white sofas.Through playful language, irony coupled with the creative, fantastic flair of Jaime Hayon allows visitors to escape from reality, “diverting them” towards a surreal, poetical world.’

“I like the idea of being able to create a fun, more sophisticated version of an object as serious and functional as an aeroplane. Set in a very glamorous hangar, this aeroplane is a light-hearted work with an unusual and enchanting look, complete with a glass cabin, leather wings and coloured missiles and symbols alluding to love. Jet Set is a sitting room cum aeroplane: an objet d’art in an imaginary installation which displays the potential of Bisazza mosaic.”

Brothers Dalton Mirrors by Harry & Camila

‘Brothers Dalton is a family of mirrors, all standing on two feet and leaning to the wall. As the real Dalton family, that the designers Harry & Camila have inspired to, Brothers Dalton family members have different height’

Wiremore by Joris Laarman

WirePod

‘Joris Laarman’s WirePod is a flexible grey powder pod that begins with a three-prong plug and branches out into four curled arms, each with a single three-prong socket. Its arms and body roll and unfurl as needed to adjust for your functional living space. Wirepod is the first piece in Artecnica’s Wiremore collection, a series of electrical products that challenge conventions by transforming power cords and wires from concealed, passive objects into visible active elements that aesthetically and functionally energize living and working spaces.’

The beautiful game by GRO design

‘Table football is great fun to play – it’s social, active and physical. As an object, however, the football table is becoming less desirable as its often cost-driven appearance no longer fits in with the designed landscape of modern interiors.
Many recently built football stadiums have a strong architectural and sculptural beauty, becoming city landmarks. We wanted the design of our football table to be equally spectacular and memorable – through form, colour, material and the subtle use of light to bring a sense of drama and excitement to the game. We were interested in creating atmosphere through form, colour, material and subtle use of light, bringing a heightened sense of drama and excitement to the game. The table’s flowing lines express the dynamic aspect of football, while reducing unnecessary detail to allow the raw energy of the game to come to the fore.’
