It's that time of the year again: when the design movers and shakers pack their bags and head to the world's biggest contemporary furniture fair, Salone Internazionale del Mobile. Now in its 48th edition, the 2009 fair will run April 22-27 in Milan--and TreeHugger's Mairi Beautyman will be on-site, gleaning the best of green things to come from some of the world's most cutting-edge designers and manufacturers. To kick things off, we have a sneak-peak at products set to debut, compiled from press releases and some of our favorite design sites (including designboom and Dezeen), and ranging from recycled eggshell stationary to polished biodegradable dinnerware to paper furniture by architect Shigaru Ban.
