Milan in Colour

Milan in Colour · David Flack, Interior Designer

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.

A month ago we were wide-eyed and walking around the world’s biggest design fair, the Salone Del Mobile, with Dulux! The fair, attracting 400,000 visitors, presents the very best in international design with hundreds of exhibits and installations from leading and emerging designers, as well as international design brands. Beyond the commercial fair, the city itself comes alive with a public program of over 1300 satellite events and installations known as the ‘Fuorisalone’. (literally, ‘outside the fair’).

Today, in our second Milan in Colour film, Melbourne designer David Flack of Flack Studio shares Milan through his eyes. In this episode, the award-winning designer explains why he makes the pilgrimage to Milan each year, and how engaging with the global design community is pushing his own practice in new directions.

Stay tuned next month, when our Milan series comes to a close with an episode featuring colour forecasters Bree Leech and Andrea Lucena-Orr from Dulux, who will divulge how Milan Design Week has informed their 2019 Dulux Colour Forecast.
