Material Intelligence: Polypropylene trending at Milan

Milan’s Design Week and Salone del Mobile exhibition are the Holy Grail of furniture design, and not only for furniture dealers and designers. Top materials suppliers also flock to Milan, often for inspiration, and sometimes just to confirm their own designs are "on trend." Profol, a manufacturer of cast polypropylene (PP) engineered film for decorative surfaces from Germany, is one of these suppliers. I spoke recently to Profol’s Global Key Account Manager for furniture products, Peter Weidenschlager, about the trends observed in Milan.
