The 58th edition of the Salone del Mobile.Milano will be held from 9-14th April at Milan’s Rho showgrounds. This year’s event sees the return of the biennial Euroluce and Workplace3.0 exhibitions and promises to feature more than 2350 exhibitors (including 550 SaloneSatellite designers) across 205,000 sqm of exhibition space.
Preparations are in full swing for the upcoming edition of the Salone del Mobile.Milano, the global furniture sector’s platform for quality, innovation and creativity.
Encompassing five trade events, within a new format, Milan’s big show hinges on the Salone Internazionale del Mobile and International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition, which is split into style categories Classic, Design and xLux – the latter of which is bigger than ever, and will be joined by the biennial Euroluce and Workplace3.0 exhibitions, plus SaloneSatellite.
Making its debut is S.Project, a space dedicated to design products and decorative and technical interior design solutions which reflects the synergies between various industry sectors, from furnishings to wellness products. S.Project is set to include 66 participants, including B&B Italia, Boffi Living, cc-tapis, Emeco, ercol, Flos, Fredericia, Fritz Hansen, Kvadrat, Maruni, Missoni, and Rubelli.
Euroluce will comprise 421 exhibitors (48% of which are international brands), underscoring its role as the international point of reference for the lighting world. This edition will feature everything from integrated and intelligent solutions to Smart Living and energy-efficient concepts.
Workplace3.0 promises a 360° overview of the design of new working environments, while the 22nd edition of SaloneSatellite, a leading design event for talented young designers, invites reflection on the future of food from a responsible perspective.
In the wake of the new approach to the fair announced last year, the Salone is putting the spotlight on Milan as an international creative hub, and the capacity of the industrial network that underpins it. It will also pay homage to Leonardo da Vinci, on the 500th anniversary of his death.
Fair president Claudio Luti says: “At this particular time of great success for Milan, it is important to consolidate the Salone del Mobile’s powers of attraction, offering its visitors not just a wide range of products, but, especially, opportunities for international interface and for reflection on the relationship between creativity and business.”
