The Milan Report 2017 provides the Australian architecture and design industry with an in-depth insight into international shifts in furniture, lighting and materials direct from the world’s most important design event.

Curated, written, photographed and published by independent design observers – Penny Craswell, Giovanna Dunmall and Marcus Piper – the report goes beyond surface trends, investigating how global socio-economic, political and ethical concerns are shaping the future direction of design.

With over 50 years of collected experience working across some of the world’s most respected design magazines, the team behind The Milan Report are constantly inspired by design’s ability to innovate and change everyday lives.

The Milan Report’s point of difference is an intelligent approach to design reporting. Delving beyond the parties, products and prosecco – the team provides valuable insights that have the power to inform design and business decisions into the future.


Collectively the team behind TMR2017 have over 20 years experience reporting on the Salone del Mobile for some of the world's leading publications.
