It is such a pleasure to have Ruth Aram join us here on Design Hunter today to share some of her Milan highlights. As head of the retail side of the Aram Store Ruth has been visiting Milan every year since the early 1990s, heading to the Salone del Mobile to survey new talent and source products for the showroom.
Under her father Zeev’s direction, Aram was the first furniture store in Britain to exhibit the work of modernist designers such as Le Corbusier, Marcel Breuer, Carlo Scarpa and Eileen Gray. As well as being a trained landscape architect, Ruth has developed her own personal eye for product design, and before becoming Director at Aram Designs she opened her own showroom in Hampstead, known as The Ruth Aram Store.
In this special guest post for Design Hunter she picks out some of the designs that caught her eye in Milan earlier this month.
