Destinations with Bite: Dezeen and MINI World Tour Takes Milan

Off the back of canvassing Cape Town's premier design conference, Design Indaba, the Dezeen and MINI World Tour makes its next stop in Milan, Italy for Salone del Mobile. This year, one of the most influential furniture fairs on the globe plays host to MINI Kapooow!, a high-impact installation inspired by the MINI Paceman's wild streak. While the diverse program at the MINI Paceman Garage may have your calendar filled with a host of creative events, there's plenty of hidden treasures to inspire your Milan bucket list.
