MOCO'11: Milan, the furniture fair, has turned into a kind of entertainment carnival
by Harry / December 30, 2011

Our month-by-month review of 2011's notable objects & architecture continues... In April it was the biggest design fair in the world, Milan. An interview with Tom Dixon shot in Milan by Domus sums up the tone and the direction the event has taken in the last decade.

Says Dixon, "... people are coming from all over the world [to Milan], not really to do furniture business any more, but to have visual sensations...". Instead of fighting the carnival Dixon, through various collaborations, became part of it using social media, video, and opening a pop-up restaurant.

Join us on Twitter and Facebook where we'll be showing more of yours, and our, April 2011 favorites until tomorrow.
