The 55th edition of Salone del Mobile is coming: 207,000 m2 of net exhibition space and 2,310 exhibitors and three collateral events focused on the concepts of architectural finishings, living and classic furnishing.
Salone del Mobile is one of the most important appointments in the world, reaffirming Milan’s role as the capital of design.
“The 55th edition of the Salone del Mobile occurs during a special year for the city. ‘Design after Design’, the International Exhibition of the Triennale di Milano.
This means that we are gearing up for an extraordinary Design Spring, with a combination of events in which we believe and which will bring Milan to the forefront of international attention yet again.
In 2016 the biennial EuroCucina exhibition and its collateral event FTK (Technology For the Kitchen) are back along with the International Bathroom Exhibition responding to the rising demand for quality in both sectors.
The 19th edition of SaloneSatellite will be held in Pavilions 13-15, with free entry from Cargo 4. This year’s theme is “New Materials, New Design”.
Mixing business and culture is the Salone del Mobile.Milano mission. This year, within the ambit of the XXI Triennale International Exhibition, it will be holding the “Rooms. Novel Living Concepts” exhibition, curated by Beppe Finessi, at the Palazzo dell’Arte in Milan, from April 2nd to September 12th. The exhibition is geared to underscoring the particular remit of interior architecture and providing a vision of home living projected towards the future.
The upcoming edition of the Salone del Mobile also wants to pay particular homage to what came before “actual” design. The exhibition-event “Before Design: Classic” is a reflection on the classic soul of contemporary living and the short film by multi-award winning filmmaker Matteo Garrone – screened in Pavilion 15 F15/H18 – discusses classic Made in Italy taste and its currency in an audio and visual narration. Artistic Direction by Studio Ciarmoli Queda.
The city event linked directly to the Salone del Mobile.Milano will be “space&interiors” – organised by the international architecture, design and construction biennial MADE expo – at The Mall Porta Nuova – Brera Design District: a fascinating display of surfaces, flooring, doors and interior finishings curated Migliore+Servetto Architects.
