Milan Furniture Fair - The Milan Breakfasts
Friday 15 April 2011
Paul Atkinson was in Milan at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, where he introduced the topic of Open Design to a public audience for a ‘Milan Breakfast’ event. He spoke about the issues that need to be addressed and the potential impact on design in a world where everyone can be a designer. Then the chair, Saskia van Stein of the Design Academy, Eindhoven, went round the table extracting the views of the designers Yves Béhar, Martí Guixé, Thomas Lommée, Tal Erez and Joost Grootens. Some lively debate with the audience followed, proving once again that this emerging issue is proving to be provocative with all involved.
