Milan Design Week 2012

Another Milan Design Week completed! 

I keep forgetting how much walking you do in the short amount of time when at the Design Festival … 
( not-to-self - forget about looking cool during the day, where trainers! )

I was drawn to the Ingo Maurer show that featured lot’s of new one-off objects plus the latest version of the LED Wallpaper … all fantastic but what grabbed my attention was the adapted 'biotope' and 'johnny b. butterfly' wall which consists of hand-made insects, each a work of art on their own - they flutter out of natural sponges which conceal the source of light and filter the colourful and diverse lumens that are emitted from it.
