One of our favorite exhibits at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair was Loaded, which brought together 15 students and emerging designers from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) to explore the history, physicality, and currency of two catalytic materials: iron and sugar. Designer Brian Anderson explains: “Sugar and iron are two materials that represent the American history quite well, with references to the times of slavery as well as the glorious industrial days.” Read on for a look at the innovative designs on display — from lighting to tableware and jewelry.
