One of the highlights at Ambiente, the global trade fair running Feb. 7-11, 2020, is a new presentation called “Focus on Design,” which will showcase products and detailed insights of current design trends in a selected country. For 2020, Ambiente will start with a fast-developing designer nation with striking modernist design, but that has so far only made an impact on professionals: Brazil. “This year we’re starting with Brazil, a country whose art, architecture and design scene has been influencing the avant-garde since the 1960s, yet internationally it is still mainly known only to professionals.” — Nicolette Naumann, vice president of Ambiente Five different Brazilian design studios, each with its own special identity, will be showcasing their creative output at Galleria 1. In addition, young Brazilian designers will be in the Talents area in Hall 8.0, where they will present their unique handmade items and limited series. “By setting up the special presentation Focus on Design we’ll be honoring important designer nations that may not be quite so well-known yet,” said Nicolette Naumann, vice president of Ambiente. “This year we’re starting with Brazil, a country whose art, ...

Apple’s newest tablet is a bit of a curiosity. Especially when the company already has two very capable tablets: the iPad Pro is a productivity beast while the iPad Air is more for leisure browsing. The just-announced iPad is Apple’s latest entry-level tablet. It’s more than $100 cheaper than the iPad Air and, depending on which model you get, at least $1,000 less than an iPad Pro. I’m leading with the price of the iPad, because, to be blunt, that’s its greatest advantage over the other iPads. Yes, it has a larger 10.2″ display and it can use a  Smart Keyboard, but other than those two things, this new iPad is just an upsized 6th Gen iPad. It has the same A10 chip, the same 128GB max storage, the same 8mp camera. It’s just bigger. When you look at it side-by-side with the iPad Air, it’s hard to justify not paying the extra $170 for the...
