The glass cabinet of Vitra and Panasonic

The highlights in technoligcal innovation couldn’t match the big innovative and technological revelation that came from the collaboration between Vitra and Panasonic together with designer Daniel Rybakken. For Milan Design Week, they decided to create a concealed Vitrine television. The prototype, which was shown, was made of a normal wooden frame with what looked like a single pane of glass at an angle.

However, when they turned on the TV, it became clear that the glass was in fact an OLED screen. With all the electronic components hidden in the frame, the television blends in with the living space environment. The object is a careful balance between art and design and this innovation just gives the future of interior design so many possibilities.

The first ever artificial intelligence chair designer.

Among the highlights, the chair made by artificial intelligence to be put into production takes the crown. As an initiative by Philippe Starck, Autodesk and Kartell, they launched their chair designed by an AI at the Salone del Mobile.

The Chair designed by AI is one of the biggest highlights at Salone del Mobile.

What made the design so much different from others was the minimal use of materials to create a still comfortable chair and the fact that the design was not influenced by culture, memories or other outsider influence.
