On the Floor with Core: Student and Independent Projects from SaloneSatellite 2018

This year’s SaloneSatellite showcased a wide variety of projects, many of which extended beyond traditional furniture design. Throughout Milan Design Week in general, we noticed three material trends—inflatables, foam and adjustable ratchet straps—all of which be seen scattered throughout this recap. Our favorite projects from the rather extensive exhibition within Salone pushed the boundaries of traditional design in ways we hadn’t seen before. For example, has anyone reading this used glue sticks as a primary material for furniture before? Didn’t think so.
