Those small, elegant items
3/31/2011

Be it animal sculptures, vases or candles - accessories upgrade a dry trade fair presentation, complete the overall look, and evoke in the one or other previously unsuspected desires. Patricia Urquiola, for example, really emphasizes her cushions. At the Milan Salone del Mobile she regularly runs past her sofa creations, plumps up the cushions and if necessary re-arranges them. Not only designers, but also manufacturers like to decorate their booths with the requisite trimmings. And some of them go to great lengths as we could observe recently at the ISH in Frankfurt. It is not just a case of draping a towel over a holder, or placing any old soap on the washstand; no, we find a host of small, elegant items, which underscore an approach cultivating either the exclusive or purist, and which are to be read and recognized by a specific target group. Whether extravagant or more ordinary, natural, kitschy or playful - take a look and see which you like best.
