Milan Design Week 2023
Excitement was high for the 61st edition of the Milan Furniture Fair, the globally important event is finally back in its traditional April slot, from the 18th to the 23rd. Expectations were also great because, in spite of the worldwide problems of the last few years, the Fair has always performed well, closing its 2022 balance sheet with a production turnover of 56.5 million euro and growth of 12.6% compared to 2021.
Pre-fair doubts were soon set aside by the usual, much appreciated attendance by architects, designers, trade professionals, students, and journalists from all over the world, who flocked to the city, visited the expo, and animated the presentations and events at the Fuorisalone.
Legno Arredo presented the official data confirming a highly successful 2023 edition, such that it can be said that the Show has proudly returned to its pre-Covid numbers: 307,400 visitors, a 15% increase over 2022, from 181 different countries, including Europe, North America, the Middle East as well as the expected and welcome return of China and the Far East.
Key Cucine’s milanese showroom, at the heart of the Brera Design District, attracted an attentive, motivated crowd of architects, industry professionals, and design lovers, all ready to appreciate HAIKU - the new kitchen previewed by Key Cucine at the Fuorisalone - and our sincerest thanks go to all of them. This new composition was met with a great deal of interest: HAIKU is a perfect combination of the many specific qualities that make Key Cucine and its constant desire to innovate and experiment stand out from the rest.
In particular, Key Cucine’s characteristic minimalist, clean-cut style is shown in a new way in this composition with its soft, rounded shapes. Bold, imposing volumes for the island, back as the absolute feature point: the top is 4.72 m long, with a cantilever section of 1.65 m, 1.35 m deep, and 94 cm high (variable according to product customisation). Great focus has been placed on using elegant, prime quality materials, including “Emotion Grey” marble for the top and counter top, with bronzed pewter finish metallic effect for the doors.
