A chart from Architonic’s new Trend Analysis series
It’s natural to compare. We all do it. Call it human nature. When such sizing-up is motivated by dissatisfaction or inadequacy, it’s probably not such a healthy activity. But if it’s underpinned by a desire to take stock, to see where you stand amongst your peers and how you can improve, it can reap reward. And when it has a clear business benefit, so much the better.

Architonic is the official online media partner this year for the Brera Design District and Superstudio Group
14 to 19 April will see the Lombardian city once again become the epicenter of the design world.
So as not to lose sight of the fair’s diverse offerings, as well as those of the Fuorisalone quarters and their showrooms, we’ve put together an edit of the best exhibitors and events in the form of our Architonic Guide. What’s more, you can find us at three venues, plus we’re also official online media partner this year for the Brera Design District and Superstudio Group.
In collaboration with Moroso and Fantoni, we’ve developed a special Booth-in-Booth concept, allowing us to address our partners from specialist retail directly. And our team is looking forward to presenting you with our latest services and offers in the Press Gallery (hall 6).
Alongside our guide, our new Architonic Trend Analysis series is particularly interesting for anyone preparing for the biggest design event of the year. In this newsletter, you’ll already find a comprehensive set of insights into the latest developments in the furniture and lighting markets, accompanied by useful infographics.

Studio Ton Ton’s Light+Light house in Indonesia is designed to be filled with light and to welcome nature indoors, as is driven home by a guava tree growing in the centre of the bathroom
It’s a long time since bathrooms were regarded as purely functionalist, private spaces for performing perfunctory, daily ablutions. For the past 20 years or so, they’ve been elevated to a potentially communal space people choose to linger in. Take clean-lined, open-plan wet rooms — redolent of hammams and, free of clunky shower screens and trays, appealingly spacious —which are still in vogue today. Or the freestanding bath positioned mid-bedroom, though this looks dated now. (by Dominic Lutyens)

Wonderwall, a house in Thailand by architects SO, is designed to be as open-plan as possible and to meld together indoor and outdoor spaces
The trend towards breaking down the walls surrounding bathrooms and opening up this space – not just to other areas of the home, but to the outside world as well – was not only observable at ISH, but is also confirmed by a series of projects. Our feature article ‘Wild and wet: the new bathrooms getting in touch with nature’ provides more details.

The entrance at Expo 2015
Last week MADE Expo, Italy’s premier building trade fair, took place in Milan. For this edition of MADE, an entirely logical development was to link this year’s fair with Expo 2015, one of the biggest events to take place in the city, which will be opening its doors in one month’s time.
