Campaign Research:Out of Milan//Friday so far we love

Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola has designed a modular sofa for Moroso upholstered in fabrics inspired by traditional patterns from Uzbekistan.

Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campanahave designed Cipria, a fake fur-covered sofa, for Italian brand Edra.
Konstantin Grcic opens the Extrusions collection which he has designed for Bd Barcelona design with this table, baptised as Table B. Its name is as simple and technical as the design itself. Grcic has been inspired by classic Bd pieces, such as the Hypóstila shelf unit (in production since 1979), in developing a tabletop of extruded aluminium with a minimal profile and for lengths of up to 360 cm. It is offered in various finishes and with three models of legs. Suitable for indoor and outdoor areas. Its apparent simplicity hides a complex technical development in which senior engineers have been involved. In counterpoint, the production also includes several manual processes. The result is a highly crafted piece with all the character of the German designer.

a large, rusty, cast-iron dinner service by Belgian designers Studio Job is on show in Milan this week.

Lena from the studio is set to report back more treats for us throughout the week.
