Milan Design Week 2008: Meta
by sabine7 / April 23, 2008

Meta’s first collection was launched in Milan last week, with the North American launch set for ICFF in New York next month. This inaugural collection features the work of a handful of top designers who worked with master craftsmen to combine “exquisite materials, the finest techniques of the past and a contemporary aesthetic.” The results are beautiful. Shown above: the Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend lantern by Matali Crasset, the Cupola reading table by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, and the Ivo table by Asymptote, Hani Rashid and Lise Anne Couture. We wish we could show you the Fig Leaf wardrobe, a masterpiece by Tord Boontje, but we all have to wait till next month.
