Top Tech Players Lead The Way At Milan Design Week 2024

LG Milan Design Week

Milan Design Week, one of the world’s largest design and furniture exhibitions, is underway in northern Italy from April 16 to April 21. The mega fair has around 2,300 exhibiting companies, and here’s an update on some of the major tech companies showing in and around this prestigious fair.

Samsung

Samsung Electronics will showcase its new premium kitchen and lifestyle at EuroCucina 2024, one of the largest kitchen events held along the sidelines of Milan Design Week.

Samsung’s booth at EuroCucina this year invites visitors to zones which consist of the Bespoke AI and Premium Built-In Kitchen. At the Premium Built-In Kitchen zone, Samsung has unveiled three new built-in products.

The Built-in Wide Bottom Mount Freezer (BRB6500D) is the first wide model to appear in Samsung’s built-in refrigerator lineup. Using its Wi-Fi compatibility, users can reduce their energy use by up to 10 per cent through SmartThings AI Energy Mode. The Anyplace Induction, is also displayed at the zone. The Anyplace Induction enables users to cook flexibly anywhere on the cooktop. The induction uses 76 sensors to intelligently recognise pots and pans and show their locations on the AI Home display. This allows users to choose cooking areas and set temperatures according to what they are cooking. Also, Samsung’s new Energy Efficient Dishwasher is on display at EuroCucina 2024. Users can turn on the energy saving mode if the monthly electricity bill seems to exceed their target. Then, the dishwasher uses up to 23 per cent less energy with the Pots and Pans programme by reducing the temperature of the main wash and hot rinse while extending the cycle time.

Its Bespoke AI zone has multiple screens. The AI Family Hub and AI Home has a seven-inch screen built into the Bespoke AI Laundry Combo and Anyplace Induction. Through the screens, users can get useful information about tthe device itself or get a phone call directly on the Bespoke AI Laundry Combo while doing laundry.

The devices also feature SmartThings 3D Map View, a three-dimensional perspective of the home that locates connected Samsung appliances throughout the house. It turns off connected devices that aren’t being used and checks their energy usage.

LG

LG Electronics has a 483sqm booth at Salone del Mobile (EuroCucina), a display at Signature Kitchen Suite showroom and a collaboration with Moooi at the Dutch lifestyle company showroom.

LG’s exhibition booth at Salone del Mobile showcases the ultra-premium Signature Kitchen Suite built-in lineup. LG is also displaying its PuriCare AeroFurniture air purifier, new designs by Moooi, as well as other new products such as the InstaView bottom freezer with MoodUP.

Among the products on display is the newly unveiled Signature Kitchen Suite 60-centimeter built-in oven with Gourmet AI technology. LG’s AI innovation can identify what the user is cooking and automatically suggest the optimal cooking mode from a database of 130 recipes. The LG InstaView bottom-freezer refrigerator with MoodUP, meanwhile, can be found alongside the French-door InstaView fridge with MoodUP.

The newly-revealed Signature Kitchen Suite 48-inch French-door refrigerator and the sleek appliances of the Transitional lineup include built-in combi refrigerators, induction hobs and microwave ovens.

Visitors to the Milan Design Week 2024 can explore LG’s advanced built-in kitchen and home appliances at the LG exhibition booth at Milan Fairgrounds, the Signature Kitchen Suite showroom (corner of Via Manzoni and Piazza Cavour) and the Moooi showroom at Salone dei Tessuti (Piazza Cavour).

Gaggenau

Gaggenau returns to Villa Necchi Campiglio this year. The Elevation of Gravity experience offers a glimpse into its future that it says celebrates “our innate attraction to craftsmanship; that magnetic force that transcends the conventional and elevates life.” It features how Gaggenau’s smart home appliances can be integrated into living spaces.

This architectural installation is a monumental experience whereby Gaggenau says that “the invisible force of gravity is made tangible in the form of a new way of living and Gaggenau’s upcoming masterpieces.”

Ikea

After a previous failed attempt at introducing inflatable furniture, the new BRÄNNBOLL gaming collection will include the first successful inflatable chair from IKEA. Also revealed are two IKEA products from the latest launch of the Nytillverkad collection. These products were originally developed and now updated by Japanese designer Noboru Nakamura.
