10 product highlights at Milan 2015

As Milan Design Week draws to an end, we look back at ten new designs that made an impression.

From the Series

Sheets desk by Lucie Koldová

This two-tier desk by the Czech product designer was made for Křehký, a design gallery in Prague. It strikes the perfect balance between old-fashioned writing desk and contemporary computer workstation.

Muse light by by Studio Sandro Santantonio for Axo

Italian brand Axo Light launches additions to its Muse collection with pendant and table lamps in various sizes, colours and printed patterns.

Bowl table lamp by New Works

The latest light by the Copenhagen design studio is a modern-day take on a portable lantern. New Works’ creative director Knut Bendik Humlevik has designed an “art object” that puts a twist on its clean Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic.

PRISM Collection by Tokujin Yoshioka

The Japanese designer continues his love affair with all things transparent in this bold but understated range for Glas Italia. Yoshioka's PRISM bench and cabinet have bevelled edges that create striking colour diffractions in the sunlight.

FES Watch by Fashion Entertainments

This watch by Japanese digital technology brand Fashion Entertainments is made completely out of electronic paper that is blank until the wearer moves. The watch appears black until the wearer lifts their arm to check the time, and then the display comes to life.

GRID sofa by Studio Pool

Modular design and geometric elements come together in this sofa by Paris-based Studio Pool for Petite Friture, an edited collection of work by emerging designers. The cushions, backrests and armrests can be configured in numerous different ways atop a walnut wooden base.

Self-made Seat by Matali Crasset for Campeggi

The ever-playful French designer deconstructs the sofa into an endlessly adjustable seating system that can be dismantled into portable sections.

Kayo extensible table and Assaya armchair by Satyendra Pakhalé

The Indian industrial designer launched two products at Salone del Mobile: the glass tabe for FIAM with an extendable mechanism embedded in its legs and an armchair, pouf, side table and laptray for Poltrona Frau.

Rope Hope collection by Sep Verboom

Belgian designer Verboom upcycled discarded shipping rope into a hand-woven stool and lamp, inspired by a community of rope-makers in the Philippines.
