Bulgarian designers participate in Milan’s HOMI fair

Atanas Zgurev, Creative Line studio, Irena Pamukova, Ivan Arnaudov, Maia Ivanova, Nikolay Mi­­­hay­­lov,  Milena Paleva, Velichko Velikov, Vera Ilieva and Yordan Dobrev participated in this first presentation of Bulgarian design at HOMI. Most of the products they showed were seen for the first time by the public, and some of the exhibits were designed specifically for the fair.

The designers showed furniture for the home and garden, jewellery, decorative ceramics and lighting fixtures. The Bulgarian designer products attracted tra­ders, architects and interior designers from different countries. Over 60 firms showed interest in the presented products, mostly in furniture for the home and garden and the lighting fixtures.
The Bulgarian designers were noticed by representatives of Salone Satellite, the largest world platform for young talent, in which, until now, Bulgaria has not been represented. They invited the representatives to participate in the next prestigious edition.

Another recognition of Bulgarian design was the second invitation – to participate in ICFF in New York, alongside selected products from all over Europe. Cherga’s participation in HOMI 2016 was made possible with support from MD magazine and financial aid from GS Malmgren.
