Milan, or perhaps Milano, sits gracefully in the Po Valley more or less between the Po River and the first upward thrusts of the Alps. Arguably, this is the most German of all the great Italian cities, as perhaps exemplified by the Central Train Station above. The city seems to straddle the old and the new with a great nimbleness of metropolitan foot. What better place to inspire a fashion porcelain collection. Milan is without question at the very heart of the industrial, business and financial cores of Italy. In design, Milan along with New York, Paris, and London, is one of the primary fashion centers in the world. This is especially true of the menswear segment. Milan’s International Furniture Fair is a premier event of that inspires furniture trends year after year. Culturally, the famous La Scala opera house, has been the site of the premiers of Falstaff, Madame Butterfly and Turandot. The Milano Porcelain Collection from Marble Systems seeks the design high ground in fashion porcelain that is the legacy of its namesake city. As shown in the image above, both the august city and this unique fashion porcelain collection share a clean, clear design style. This is a pure and symmetrical approach that finds a warm and willing audience amongst the design professionals of 2014. The size flexibility that the collection presents allows for the patterning, banding and inserting that is the calling card of fashion forward interior design.
