2012 will be my 6th year at the Milan iSaloni furniture fair. I am travelling with Niels Bendtsen who is at his 47th fair…
Milan design week is exhausting and energizing, foggy and sunny, trend-setting and too-trendy, long days, short nights.
A typical day starts with an early breakfast at the Hotel Cavour with fair maps and daytimer calendars plotting how we will be splitting up some meetings and getting together for others. A 15 minute walk through Giardini Pubblici to the Palestro Metro station is probably the only pause for air in the day before we board the already-jampacked train enroute to the fairgrounds.
