Salone Satellite: product highlights

Tuesday, 24 April 2012

An artisanal approach to detail, especially in wood mixed and matched with other materials, emerged as a key trend at this year's Salone Satellite.

Among the product highlights were Taiwanese designer Jackie Wu's Cracked vases - a series that mixes wood and marble and highlights the imperfection of the wood with bright green lacquer.
