British designer Alexander Taylor speaks with Max Fraser at our TV studio in Milan.
As this year’s Milan Design Week comes to a close, Alice Rawsthorn summarises her thoughts on the event in her most recent article for the International Herald Tribune.
Discussing the general sentiments felt throughout the week, Rawsthorn highlights a number of trends seen, while offering her best pics from the, surprisingly, not so bleak lot.

For the first time, DeTnk, in partnership with ZonaTortona, will be hosting ZonaTortona.TV + DeTnk.Tv – a live onsite purpose-built studio, in the centre of ZonaTortona.
The project will be one of ZonaTortona’s institutional and content initiatives for the 2009 Milan Design Week.
With 7 days of live interviews, on the spot editing, and daily uploads we are pleased to announce that the ZonaTortona.TV + DeTnk.TV Studio was a great success.
In partnership with ZonaTortona, to celebrate Milan’s Design Week, we took to the air to speak with over 50 key figures from the global design scene.
There are two extant examples of the long 'Dolphin' chair, one which was the example exhibited at the Copenhagen Cabinet Makers' Guild exhibition in 1950 which is now in a private collection and the present lot. It is therefore believed there were only two ever produced.
