Five years ago...

Five years ago this week Dezeen arrived in Milan for the 2007 Salone Internazionale del Mobile, where we saw a lamp comprising a cluster of writhing human bodies and a vase made by bees.

Both Phillippe Starck and Ron Arad were presenting new chairs for furniture brand Driade, while Toyo Ito showed a spherical light made from layers of delicate fibre mesh. Elsewhere Established and Sons launched their cartoon graphics-style cabinets alongside Jasper Morrison's storage units that look like crates.

Back in the UK, we revealed the news that Jean Nouvel was to design the new Philharmonie de Paris, although a series of financial problems have stalled its construction, and UNStudio collaborated with 3XN on the competition-winning design for a waterfront housing development in Denmark.
