Milan In Colour!

If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you may have noticed that our team were in MILAN last week, attending the world’s biggest design fair, the Salone Del Mobile, with Dulux.

WOWSERS what a week! The Milan fair is an annual pilgrimage for designers and creatives from across the globe, and is a melting pot of international design trends. We spent a week exploring the various exhibits, catching up with Aussie designers doing us proud on the global stage, and soaking up all the creative ideas on show.

But our trip wasn’t all Instagram stories and Aperol Spritzes! Nope, we spent the week shooting a new, four-part video series, in partnership with Dulux. Entitled ‘Milan in Colour’, this series will follow four different Australian creatives attending Milan Design Week.

As the series unfolds over the coming weeks, you’ll hear why award-winning interior designer David Flack of Flack Studio travels to Milan each year to fuel creativity, and colour forecasters Bree Leech and Andrea Lucena-Orr from Dulux will divulge how the colour trends on show in Milan inform their annual Dulux Colour Forecast.

Locations seen in this film includes:  Palazzo Stamskin installation by Studio GGSV, the ‘Local Milan’ Australian exhibit, the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibit, ‘Typecasting by Vitra’, the moody interiors of CasaBASE, the swoon worthy foyer of Hotel Room Mate Giulia, the dramatic tile-clad Hermes installation at Museo Della Permanente, the ‘Swedish Design Moves‘ exhibit, the incredible Hay x Wework x Sonos exhibit at Palazzo Clerici and more!
