In this series of short looks at the Milan design week 2014 we take a look at the key events happening in the inner city of Milan and the Brera District.
Ecal took a different approach to the home automation trend. By taking on the subject with a bit of humor it's easy to realise how many solutions simply don't make much sense yet.
