Marketscape: Milan

1. Designer: Stephen Burks for BD Barcelona

Product: Grasso

Standout: The first introduction by an American designer for the Spanish brand, the generously proportioned armchair and footrest combine leather upholstery and tubular steel frames.

2. Designer: Oki Sato for Minotti

Product: Waves

Standout: As the name suggests, the ocean’s undulations inspired the Nendo founder’s painted aluminum cocktail tables topped with smoked glass, their half moons providing storage.

3. Designers: Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby for Glas Italia

Product: Ecco

Standout: Barber & Osgerby’s floor-standing mirror doesn’t just reflect: A dimmable LED inside a Murano glass diffuser illuminates, while the electrical cord and rubber bumper bands give pops of color.

4. Designer: Piero Lissoni for B&B Italia

Product: Eda-Mame

Standout: The Interior Design Hall of Fame member nods to the humble soy bean and the Möbius strip with his molded-foam sofa supported by a pewter-finished steel base.

5. Designer: Sebastian Wrong of Established & Sons

Product: Filigrana

Standout: Mouth-blown acid-etched Venetian glass composes the company design director’s pendant fixture, its striped embellishment, or filigrana, rolled onto its surface.

6. Designers: Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto, and Ola Rune for Capdell

Product: Droplets

Standout: Drops of water on a flat surface ignited the Claesson Koivisto Rune founders’ eight shapes of chrome-legged ottomans, which can group to form a seating archipelago.

7. Designer: India Mahdavi for Golran

Product: Garden of Eden

Standout: Lush leaves and a scalloped border define the architect’s wool rug, its colorways—green March, yellow June, black-and-white December, and scarlet September (shown)—tied to the seasons.

8. Designer: Olafur Eliasson for Moroso

Product: Green Light

Standout: The sculptor’s stackable lamp of the same name was the basis for the multiplex-board-and-painted steel table, multiples of which can be combined into a hexagon, lined up in a zigzag, or formed into a Y.
