From the easy-to-be-assembled chairs to the tiny Bambi chairs in one of the craziest and most talented exhibitors
After a visit to our funny friends from Feelt, H2DO, Delibab and Kamina, who attracted much attention from visitors, we passed by the booth of Kanazawa College of Arts, where we admired “The Hospitality Chairs” collection designed by the students and, of course, left our votes and comments. We hope to know who was finally the winner.
Thanks to Yuto Ishizu and Yasuaki Matsuura for their warm welcome!

Later on, we moved towards Monochro stand, one of our favourite Tokyo design studios in Saloni Milan in the last years. The Hanagasumi series is unique , an elegant and smart tableware using cherry barks featuring Japanese traditional crafts.
We liked their flower power lamps too.
