Jesper Larsson provided some recent coverage for us in Milan and reports the following:
Many events were closing down on Monday, the last day of Milan Design Week, when I finally got a chance to visit some of the smaller events in the Zona Tortona area, such as the ChauhanStudio, with work by brothers Tej and Sach Chauhan.
I finally managed to get my foot inside the door, and I'm glad I did. On display were beautiful retro futuristic designs that made me think of Naoto Fukasawa, one of my favourite designers.
Colombo II DECT phone
I especially liked the Colombo II, a trimline style DECT phone that looks to re-establish the lost relationship between earpiece and mouthpiece on modern telephones. The phone is manufactured by Suncorp Communications and should be available spring/summer 2008. According to ChauhanStudio's homepage, they are also planning to release the corded telephone Colombo III in 2008.
