With so much to see, experience and interact with, Fuori Salone 2015 in Milan is an assault on all the senses. We asked Liminal co-curator and ID2015 Programme Director Alex Milton to share his top five must sees from Milan so far.
Mindcraft – Danish Craft and Design
A wonderful reflective exhibition presenting Danish design and craft. GamFratesi's curation and exhibition design is beautifully simple, holding transient concepts and products within iron wrought birdcages.
