2013 Salone Internazionale del Mobile Furniture Preview

Hello, sports fans! That's right: Milan's annual design fair happens next week, and it's big, bad, and enough of an endurance test to qualify as spring training. As you read back in February, Cosmit, the Italian organization behind Salone Internazionale del Mobile, is ensuring that 2013 will be even better than usual—including a new city and museum pass that's being incorporated into the ticket price for the fair. One thing to keep in mind (as with all design fairs worth their salt) is that the off-ground exhibitions are as exciting as what's happening on the official schedule. Click through our slideshow for a peek at what brand new furniture will debut next week, and read on below for a cheat sheet of where to go in Milan.

Kickstarter of the Week: DHaus Dynamic Living

Our favorite Kickstarter this week is an exciting new project that runs the gamut from furniture to architecture. Modeled on English mathematician Henry Earnest Dudeney's clever way of transforming a square into an equilateral triangle, the D*Table, from the D*Haus Company comes in four pieces connected by removable hinges. Move the four components around from square to triangle, or any shape your space dictates, and you'll find one of the most versatile low tables out there. Each module has different shelving and facets too, giving you a raft of options as you configure the design. DHaus Dynamic Living goes a tick farther than furniture in its video though, suggesting the eventual application of this system in architecture. They envision a house that literally folds out to meet its surroundings, a truly dynamic piece of architecture designed to embrace the outdoors. That does feel rather far away at the moment, but the D*Table looks to be a worthy investment indeed.
