Although quieter in visitor numbers, this year's Milan Furniture Fair was a loud and visceral feast taking designers, architects, buyers and the media on a journey of the past and future of design.

MS: Please describe the Moooi collection in one sentence.

CV: Moooi is about the dot in the i, a collection with the mission to make any environment more beautiful.

MS: What was one of the biggest highlights for you at this year’s launch?

MS: Were there any new technical processes and material experiments you worked with this year?
