This week it’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italy — both the world’s largest furniture show, and a massive city-wide design fair.
I went along with Little Printer to demo and present at the Triennale Design Museum, as part of an event curated by Vodafone and Italy.
It was a fun and hectic day trip! LP travels in a silver travel case practically chained to my wrist. We were out of the door in London at 4.50am, and in the museum in Milan at 11am. Then leaving again for the airport at 3pm!

I spoke about Little Printer and its publications – what makes a good publication, mainly – and did a live demo of a delivery and direct messaging.
It was great fun — thanks to Zero for organising. The Lytro light field camera folks were also there. Awesome to see their product.
This will probably be LP’s last trip abroad… in this form. For demos I’m still using the prototype you saw in the film way back in 2011. All the other prototypes are being used in development. But now we’re assembling the first models with parts from the Little Printer production line, and soon I’ll be toting around one of those for demos instead.
