British designers Dave and Toby, the duo behind the brand-new furniture company &made, took a unique approach to the whole meet-and-greet part of the Milan experience. Offering a taxi service to callers in exchange for little more than a conversation, their goals was to "meet as many designers as possible and to find some of Milan's notorious functions." They also handed out an &made clip as part of a "Loose Change" project, asking finders to contact them to register the name and place where it was found.

Their designs, like the "Lost and Found" series that reinvents abandoned furniture with roughly-finished pieces of tree trunks (pictured after the jump) and the "Spair", a chair that folds completely flat and features a decorative tableau, are as clever as their Milan shenanigans.
