No-one thought a cracking recession would herald one of the biggest new launches in furniture. But when Renato Preti's new design brand SKITSCH launches at Salone this year it will make big waves. It's entering the market with no expense spared and supported by big backers such as the president of MDF and 27 big name designers together with upcoming talent get ready for something exciting. Designers such as Fernando and Humberto Campanas, Maarten Baas, Front, Dovetusai, Konstantin Grcic, Xavier Lust, Bertjan Pot, Paolo Ullian and Philippe Nigro among others will unveil 45 projects at this year's Salone 2009 in the new super-brand's permanent home - a huge flagship store on Via Monte di Pieta.
Here's a preview of five of the 45 projects to be presented.
