Torus by Tacchini at Milan Design Week

At Salone del Mobile and throughout Milan Design Week, exhibitors channelled the moody mystique of a dark dance floor. Here’s a recap of five launches ushering in a metallic design trend.

1
Puff by Tom Dixon
Resembling a disco ball, Tom Dixon's Puff pendant is one 2023 launch ushering in the metallic design trend.

At Euroluce, Tom Dixon kicked off the new days of disco with the introduction of Puff, a polyhedral design made from 30 perforated steel panels.

2
Gem by La Manufacture
Resting a black top on a shiny silvery base, Sebastian Herkner's Gem table is another 2023 launch ushering in a metallic design trend.

La Manufacture’s Sebastian Herkner–designed Gem dining table rests a glossy lacquered tabletop on a bed of gleaming pebble-shaped supports.

Poêle by Alessi

This wood-framed chair by Alessi features a metallic seat that matches 2023's metallic design trend.

Philippe Starck adapted a manufacturing technique typically used to make frying pans to develop the mirror-polished stainless-steel seat of Alessi’s Poêle. A brown-stained beechwood frame finishes off the futuristic throne.

4
Torus by Tacchini
Circular stools by Tacchini feature a metallic fabric that matches 2023's metallic design trend.

Umberto Bellardi Ricci modelled Tacchini’s flying saucer–like Torus pouffes on the ventilation ducts in the factory that produces his prototypes.

5
Pilotis by Minotti
Featuring a stainless steel cylinder supporting a second half-cylinder with an ash wood filling, this console by Minotti selects 2023's metallic design trend.

Another example of 2023’s metallic design trend, Minotti’s Pilotis console by Rodolfo Dordoni tucks a half-cylinder of brushed licorice-lacquered ash inside a polished stainless-steel frame.
