Arihiro Miyake’s new furniture collection is presented at Salone Satellite during Milano Furniture Fair 2009 (22nd-27th April).
The collection includes six projects which are newly designed and developed in the past year. The lightings, arm chair, cable container and partition wall are showcased at Pavillion 22/24, Booth B22 in Fiera Milano, Rho.
In this exhibition, Arihiro is aiming to switch the functional essence into a new aesthetic. The theme is an aesthetic that is purely indicated by core design factor and leads us to the innovative and extreme nature of tomorrow. The presented designs introduce specific materials and technologies, such as power-LED and recycled PET fibre, concerning sustainability as an inevitable issue of the future design. The designs in the exhibition also highlight Arihiro Miyake’s progressive solutions towards design matters of our time. Above all, he calls it “A Way to The Future”.
The exhibition is organized by Studio Arihiro Miyake and assisted by Valentina Folli. The exhibition is supported by Finnish Cultural Foundation, Art Council of Finland, Mytime Oy, Martela Oyj, Legnani s.r.l and Potomak co.,ltd.
