Milan 2013: Industrial look

Are we tired of the perfection of mass production? All these smooth lines, high quality plastics, hidden construction and perfect fit…  During the Milano Design Week, I truly enjoyed many products that showed the industrial and restrained look. Materials are massive, heavy and sturdy. You can see the connections, screws and assembly process. In many of these products, the innovative features like special connections or material use are hidden. Is the new design perhaps taking a nostalgic direction?
