Milan Design Week 2017: Brera District

The annual design event Salone del Mobile has closed its doors after another year’s instalment of exhibitions, talks, furniture and product fairs to engage and inspire the A&D community. A staple of the creative calendar, the event attracted over 300,000 visitors from all over the world.

During a sunshine-filled week, the Brera District – located close to the main Salone del Mobile event – was buzzing with showrooms filled to the brim with eye-catching designs and trends.


Once again geometrics and florals took centre stage across many different mediums, illustrating a graphical and illustrative style. Some designs mixed the two to create an interesting contrast between flowing, organic design and clean lines.
