Everything you should know about the project

Why a book about the Milan Design Week?

Milan Design Week is currently the most important Design and Furniture showcase of the year.

Located in Northern Italy, it’s a global design event including design industries from all over of the world, which takes annually for one week in April. Milan Furniture Fair 2019 took place in April 9th-14th.

Due to its international acclaim, Milan Design Week is the best event to spot the latest news and trends in interior and design.

Why is this not only about Milan Design Week?

The Milan Furniture Fair, indeed, reveals the biggest design trends for the future, because in Milan design and furniture brands present their new collections for the first time and independent designers showcase their works.

That’s why this publication is not just about the most recent Milan Design Week, but about what will be next in interiors and design for the following years.

Is this eBook right for me ?

This eBook is for you if:

  • you work in the design industry, and want to be inspired for your work and stay updated with the latest news and trends on interiors and design
  • you work in design communication, as a source of research for your articles
  • you attended the Milan Design Week but had a feeling there was “too much” to see and to note
  • you could not attend the Milan Design Week and want to stay updated with it
  • you don’t care about Milan Design Week, but want an overview about the current state of the furniture/interiors/& design industries and what will be next
  • you purchased the N/T #1 and loved it
  • you didn’t purchase the N/T #1 and are curious about it

N/T is a tool for design professionals and design lovers, to be inspired and stay updated with the most current news and trends.

This eBook is NOT for you if:

  • you are looking to read long texts, because this eBook is mainly about images, brief texts and LOTS of designers names, brands, and details
  • you are looking for a book in Italian, or in any languages other than English, this publication is NOT for you. But, please note that N/T is  absolutely easy to read for non-English speakers because, as I already said, there is not a lot of text
  • you don’t love design 😛


Why the cost of the book?

The project is totally independent and self-financed, making it free of sponsors and advertising.

N/T stands for ‘News/Trends’ and also for ‘No Thanks’. The small cost of this publication is set to cover part of the expenses, including original photos, graphic layout, tools for publishing, contributors, and editing.

If you are thinking that the final cost is cheap, compared to the content value of what you will get (and yes it is, trust me), so thinking there must be a catch….well, I invite you browse the blog to learn more about how we work.

N/T IS THE TRENDBOOK BY ITALIANBARK. N/T second issue follows the very first release published after Milan Design Week 2018, that was sold in almost 100 Countries, truly forecasting what we are seeing now in interiors and design.

OK: you convinced me!
