Wallpaper* Handmade 2016

Salone 2016: Wallpaper* Handmade

Always a Milan favourite, Wallpaper* Handmade is a celebration of craft and creativity. Its seventh Handmade exhibition celebrated hospitality and ‘Hotel Wallpaper*’ paired up international designers with manufacturers, with a brief to reflect on ideas about hotels and travel. Highlights included a bed designed by Gam Fratesi made by Hay, Pastry Tables by Note Design Studio in collaboration with Sienna-based company Antique Mirror, and the Water Cabin – a shower screen made in collaboration with interior architect Andre Fu and German spa specialist Klafs. The structure was constructed with a series of interlocking timber frames, alongside pivoting louvre panels. The cabin also included an outdoor scent that was created in collaboration with London-based Perfumer H founder Lyn Harris.
