Anyhow, after a looong walk from downtown we got to Tortona area at lunch time, what better way to start our tour than a good tuna salad bagel from California Bakery's new location in Via Tortona 28. A street cart was giving away RedBulls so we had one which "gave us wings" to start :)
|New Nespresso machines|
Second stop - Tortona 12, where they were selling some accessories and home decor. There was also a compact kitchen display, it was a kitchen hidden in the cabinets, you opened a drawer and there was the sink, you pushed another drawer and the stove was there, perfect for Milan's reduced spaces but I wonder if the kitchen wouldn't cost more than the actual apartment!
Third stop - Home Spa Design. I loved this space, they had everything I would want in my bathroom: whirlpools, saunas, steam baths, eco fireplaces, etc.
After the spa place we headed to Superstudio Più, a huge location with many cool spots. In the garden there was a beautiful display of Turkish marble presented by Istanbul Mineral Exporters' Association, then there was a Canon light instalment (where I got a glimpse of the new DSLR cameras in my wishlist), then we saw a product which added to water in a special tub creates a massaging foam (imagine to have one of those!), we got some nice coffee table booklets from the Danish Design Centre and visited the coolest display, Samsung.
After the Superstudio we visited Moooi and Mercedes Benz, then we decided it was time for an aperitif and then dinner, but not before visiting the Lufthansa stand (presenting the new Milan Linate - Berlin Brandenburg flight) and crossing the bridge over Porta Genova station, it becomes a funnel so it takes around 15 minutes to cross, I'll have to remember that next year and use alternate streets.
