Milan 2007: Shunju Primaverautunno - 50 new eco design products

Last week we mentioned that looking for eco design at the Milan Furniture Fair might be like looking for needles in a haystack. However we didn't say we weren't prepared to look for those needles! After recommending the opening of the Sofar Sonear showroom during the Salone, we have found another exhibit that should be worth a browse. Shunju Primaverautunno is, according to my terrible translation from Italian, a show featuring 50 new eco-design products to furnish your home. One of the most intriguing products is Ecocarat, a sustainable ceramic tile from the Japanese company Inax. They are said to be the first breathable tiles which can absorb smells, toxins and maintain the humidity levels in a room. Other products include the Adacto radiant heating system from Project Climat and a recycled denim and rubber inner tube upholstery project from 2CWorkshop. My limited Italian won't stretch much further than this I am afraid, so if anyone in Milan can go along and find out what the other 47 new products are we'd love to hear about them! The opening party is tomorrow night from 6pm.
Shunju Primaverautunno: Spazio30, Viale Vittorio Veneto, 30, 10.00 - 22.30 daily.
