Bridging The Gap
The organisers of the Milan furniture fair have issued a manifesto about being more responsible and sustainable.

The organisers of the Milan furniture fair have issued a manifesto about being more responsible and sustainable.

The organisers of the Milan furniture fair have issued a manifesto about being more responsible and sustainable. Itís time participants played along.

April means more than showers to those in the design game but there will of course be a fair few finely honed faucets at Salone del Mobile, which kicks off in Milan next Tuesday. Itís the jamboree to end all (furniture-themed, northern Italian)
jamborees,

where 300,000-odd souls descend on halls decked with furniture from the sublime to the senseless. Thereís always fussing over finishes and tweaked forms (plus some faintly amusing over-examination of chairs) but this year thereís also a sense of purpose around the challenges facing the industry.

Saloneís inaugural manifesto (in this, its 57th year) speaks of ďupping its gameĒ, being a positive influence on the city, supporting young designers and sustainability.

Sadly, as the firms try ever harder to turn heads, the production of novel but ultimately bin-bound products (like the Salone-themed board game above) abounds. Saloneís aim is noble enough but itís time the participants made their move.
