I believe that in 2019, the general trends from 2018 will be further amplified especially the trends based around the sustainability issues as the problem is ever more present in the public debate. More meaningful design that is always made in a more conscious manner and with the idea that the products, as well as the design, should be able to last!
On our side, we are currently working hard on some new products for Milan with a new Italian brand we have just starting to collaborate with, but also on several new collections for Green Mood that will be launched in the off, in the city in the Fuorisalone. This year in Milan Bonaldo will also be marking the 10th anniversary of our iconic Big Table with the launch of a special edition.
We have also started collaborating a very nice British brand working on a new piece with natural materials like cane and wood, with some of those pieces to be launched in May in NY. As for the last 9 year in a raw, we are again collaborating with Buzzispace on new collections to be launched at Neocon in Chicago in June. And since we now have the chance to be working with XL Boom we are now designing several new collections of smaller products which is very much fun since in general, we tend to work on much larger products.
