It was hard to miss millennial pink during this year’s Milan design week, now that the colour has infiltrated the furniture design industry. Dezeen editor Amy Frearson has selected 10 of the best pink designs on show.
Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc chose the popular blush-beige shade for two designs she presented during the design week. The first was this daybed for British brand Sé, which pairs pink upholstery with a powder-coated steel frame.
The brand’s exhibition also included Zupanc’s 2013 Stardust armchair in soft pink.
88 Secrets by Nika Zupanc for Scarlet Splendour
Zupanc’s second pink design in Milan was this range of cabinets for Indian brand Scarlet Splendour. On show at Spazio Rossana Orlandi, the 88 Secrets collection features ribbon-like details.
Lotus Sanctum by Matteo Cibic for Scarlet Splendour
Italian designer Matteo Cibic paired pink with polished brass to create this cabinet, also presented by Scarlet Splendour. According to the brand, it was inspired by “the purity of the flower it is named after”.
Elsewhere in Milan, Cibic also showed a series of 365 anthropomorphic vases that feature the colour.
Isla by Note Design Studio for Sancal
Note Design Studio‘s biggest launch in Milan was this island sofa for Spanish brand Sancal, shown at the Salone del Mobile in millennial pink. It is the latest in a series of pink products created by the Stockholm-based design studio.
Millennial pink was one of the most noticeable colours at the Salone del Mobile stand for Danish brand Muuto. Highlights included the new Five Pouff by Norwegian studio Anderssen & Voll, a five-sided piece with stitched stripes.
Assembly sofa by Diesel Living with Moroso
Italian brand Moroso teamed up with fashion brand Diesel to create what it calls a “collection of laid-back, comfortable products” in Milan. Among them was the Assembly sofa, which combines textured fabrics like plush velvet and felt with industrial steel bolts.
Le Refuge by Marc Ange
Created by Paris-based designer Marc Ange, this pink bed became the most Instagrammed installation at Milan design week. It is shaded beneath a canopy of pink leaf-shaped panels.
A vanity table optimised for selfies was among the objects presented at Salone Satellite by Singaporean designer Olivia Lee. It formed part of a collection aiming to solve some of the problems created by the presence of new technologies in our homes.
Pavilion Rug by Britt Bonnesen for Normann Copenhagen
Designer Britt Bonnesen paired pink with dark green for this long narrow rug for Danish brand Normann Copenhagen, although it also comes in other colour combinations. The rug is made from bamboo silk, which creates the glossy texture.
This chair created by Stone Designs for Swedish furniture company Blå Station features an extra compartment to keep restaurants, bars and hotel lobbies free of clutter. It features a scoop-shaped shell, sitting on four steel legs.
