Wallpaper* Handmade 2013 Exhibition

Wallpaper* Handmade 2013

We loved heading down to Milan to take part in Wallpaper Magazines annual
show-stopping exhibition during the Salone del Mobile.

We joined the finest artists, designers, craftsmen and manufacturers from across the globe who produce unique furniture, fittings and fashion.

This one of a kind globe was made with Mathias Hahn with a pattern that is similar to the weave of a blanket. The 72 longitude sections and 36 latitude sections generate 2,592 different shades.
