during milan design week, wallpaper* handmade X presented a series of one-off works co-created by bringing together designers, artists and architects, with the finest craftsmen, makers and manufacturers. marking its tenth edition, the anniversary exhibition at milan’s salone dei tessuti saw pieces such as elmgreen & dragset and georg jensen’s the bed, a futuristic pod that protects lovers from the digital interferences around them; germans ermičs and bang & olufsen’s circle of fifths, an interactive sound sculpture; and paul smith and mercian’s tandem bike.
