The icon design trail hits Milan 22.04.09

Recognised by its bright yellow cover, the icon design trail is an unmissable guide to the Milan furniture fair. It is distributed with the May issue of icon but is also available free of charge at key venues all over Milan.

Everyone has been wondering what it'll be like at this year's Salone del Mobile. Would the state of the world economy turn what is usually a frenetic, celebratory occasion into a rather dour affair? Making the Milan design trail, we were in a unique position to see just how jittery people were, with some still not sure even six weeks ago whether their events would be happening.

Things may have come together more last-minute than usual, but they came together. The contents of the Milan design trail are a testament to the design world's resilience, its energy and its desire to keep moving even when times are tough. And by the looks of it, Milan is in for another lively year.
