The impeccably talented editorial team at Yatzer recently took a trip to Italy for the 51st edition of Milan Design Week 2012, and they came back with an exquisite selection of their favorite creations. Milan Design Week is by far my favorite annual design trade event in the world, each year continuously showcasing the most original and exciting designers and designs from around the globe. This year’s show took place from April 17-22, with more than 3000 Italian and foreign exhibitors taking part in the renowned showcase which never restricts itself behind exclusive closed doors — the creations are spread out over the entire city of Milan, and often pop up in the city’s public parks and urban spaces (i.e. Paola Navone‘s blue-domed “Secret Garden”). If, like me, you were unable to make it to Milan in person this year, then a visit to Yatzer’s gallery of their A+ selections from this year’s show is the next best thing. I’ve picked a few of my faves of Yatzer’s faves below, but for their full gallery be sure to visit Yatzer.com. And for live updates from the world’s #1 online destination for fine and applied arts, be sure to follow Yatzer on Facebook and Twitter.
