Team P4 Out and About in Milan

Team P4 is thrilled to announce that some of our most-loved brands made a huge splash in Milan last week at Salone del Mobile as part of the annual Milan Design Week!

Often described as the “biggest event in design”, Milan Design Week features over 2,400 exhibitors from all over the world. In 2016 the event saw an incredible 300,000+ visitors from over 165 different countries walk through their doors and this year they’re hoping for even more. The event’s tagline “be the first to see the latest” truly highlights just how revolutionary the Milan Design Week really is, featuring innovative and ground-breaking designs that challenge the design world. P4 is honoured to be partnered with a number of brands exhibiting at this year’s Milan Design Week, a true celebration of the kind of high quality and intelligent design we love so much.

Smart technology, design creativity and manufacturing innovation are just some of the key concepts explored throughout this year’s Milan Design Week.  Whether we were hitting the streets, eating spaghetti or knocking back a prosecco (or two, or three!) we were constantly inspired by tech-embracing design, challenged to rethink the limits of our creative practices  and excited by the latest, greatest and most innovative products in design today.

 

For those of you who missed out seeing the amazing work at Milan for 2017, we're pleased to share some of our favourites in international design turning heads in Milan.

 

Product: BOB by Blå Station

Design: Thomas Bernstrand | Stefan Borselius

Bob Soffa 022

Having already won Best Product - Editor´s Choice Award of Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017, the BOB modular sofa system is perfect for commercial or residential use. Offering a huge range of design options due to its removable sectors, the BOB sofa system is able to adhere to almost all environments with ease.

Blå Station is a family-run Swedish furniture production company. Passionate about creating from the heart whilst also meeting today’s needs and desires, Blå Station achieves it all. Asking themselves, “How do we interact in the public space? Has today´s society added new demands? Has our way of socialising changed?” directly influences their design process, in an attempt to not only just create furniture but to offer an alternative to what is already on the market. Finding strength in their childlike curiosity and fighting against shortcuts and apathy, Blå Station is one to watch.

 

 

Product: Lucky by Blå Station

Design: Luka Stepan

 Lucky news

Built out of form-pressed wood veneer, the ‘Lucky’ chair is a must for all design lovers. Low enough to be able to be pushed under a desk, the neat and intelligent design is both a staple and a statement. Built out of stained, form-pressed oak plywood and a leather or fabric-covered padded seat and back, the ‘Lucky’ chair offers not only a pleasing design but an ergonomic fit.

 

 

Product: Moyo by Chairs&More

Design: 4P1B

MOYO CHAIRS MORE 244806 rel9a816014

 

Chairs&More’s ‘Moyo’ chair, designed entirely from a single unbroken line, is a metal structure that can be used both inside and outside. Able to seamlessly fit into traditional rustic settings or contemporary minimalist spaces, the Moyo is a design of versatility.

Chairs&More, founded in 2007, is developed and produced exclusively in Italy. Appealing to designers, architects and interior designers alike the company prides itself on its high quality designs and reliable structures. Taking current trends and giving them a personal twist and heightened functionality is Chairs&More’s specialty with customization and modularity being a key function of most of their designs. If you’re into original design and versatile pieces then Chairs&More is one to keep a lookout for.

 

 

Product: Wing by True

Design: Parisotto+Formenton

b WING Table True Design 273849 rel6885e971

Sleek, sophisticated and ... always ... fuss-free! True definitely knows how to hit us with what we all crave most: simplicity and style hand-in-hand. Their Wing table system, causing many an "oooh" and "aaaah" at Milan last week, is an inspired re-imagining of the universal table: equally at home in the domestic or commercial environment. Characterised by a wooden frame that riffs on the studio's sawhorses, the table-top carries a sweeping rounded surface trounced-off with minimalist lines to lend an overall air of gracefulness. As a godsend for the commercial sector, the Wing table can be customised with a suite of high-tech friendly additions: a cable storage solution that perches on the central element, an integrated lamp and acoustic panels and pads designed to both minimise noise distractions and add the all-important pop of colour.

True is a celebration and a re-imagining of all things design in the age of modernity. Stating "We are aware that everything around us is ageing well before us, in consumer degradation. Today, what is fashionable is dated, hopelessly outdated, already at his appearance". True aims to go beyond fashion and into the realm of the unknown. 

 

Milan Design Week 2017 is sadly over for another year. Team P4 wishes to congratulate all of the inspiring and creative designers who exhibited this time around. And, we can't wait to see what you've got in store for us next year!
