Once again, I found myself drawn to the bustling streets of Milan for yet another exhilarating edition of Milan Design Week. Amidst the myriad of captivating displays and thought-provoking exhibits, a few gems stood out among the rest. Here are my top three picks that left an indelible mark on my experience at MDW.


  1. Hybe Design Team: Combining Japanese artisan techniques with modern design, Hybe Design Team offers a unique approach to everyday items, transforming them into cozy essentials. Their glass cups and bowls, which elegantly double as beautiful lights with the help of magnets, left me awestruck.
  2. Anna Carnick, representing Nifemi Marcus-Bello, captivated audiences with the striking installation “Omi Iyo.” This powerful work sheds light on the arduous journeys of migrants from Africa to Europe. Anna’s choice to showcase Marcus-Bello’s poignant message resonated deeply with me, connecting to my own roots and leaving me profoundly moved.
  3. Draga & Aurel once again demonstrate their mastery in merging art and design, creating a seamless symbiosis of glass, objects, and lights. Transporting viewers to the ambiance of the 70s and the Space Age era, their work offers a tantalizing glimpse into the future, a future worth eagerly anticipating.
