IKEA plus TERIAL by Jian-an Su
One of the highlights of this year's fair was found on the 2nd floor of the Triennale di Milano, tucked inside a black, crepe-stripped bungalow and radiating energy and light. Yii is an exhibition of 50 objects, commissioned from 15 Taiwanese professional designers paired with local master craftsmen. The initiative was under the creative direction of Droog co-founder Gijs Bakker, who's sly gracenotes touch several of the pieces in a really wonderful way. Yii derives from the word 'Yi,' meaning "change and transformation," and all of the pieces explore the journey from the traditional to the contemporary.
