Applications For SaloneSatellite 2021 Are Open
Calling All Young Designers…Be a Part of Salone del Mobile!
SaloneSatellite, the emerging design section of Salone del Mobile.Milano, was founded and curated by Marva Griffin Wilshire. Since 1998, SaloneSatellite has discovered and promoted young talent – i.e., the most promising designers under 35 years old – and presents international Design Schools and Universities.
SaloneSatellite’s challenge has always been to imagine the shape of design to come and to try and imagine how future generations will forge a new, perfect balance between project, function and beauty. Over the years, many internationally well-known designers have been discovered at SaloneSatellite.
Since 2010 SaloneSatellite Award has been awarded the three best products chosen by an International Jury chaired by Paola Antonelli (Senior Curator of the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA in New York).
Next year Salone del Mobile.Milano marks 60 years from its foundation.
Applications for SaloneSatellite 2021 are open until August 31, 2020.
About Salone del Mobile.Milano
Launched in Milan in 1961 as a vehicle for promoting Italian exports of furnishing and accessories, the Salone Internazionale del Mobile is the global benchmark event for the furnishing and design sector.
The Salone is held in Milan in April every year, along with the biennial Euroluce exhibition in odd years and EuroCucina and the International Bathroom Exhibition in even years, and in tandem with the annual International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition and Workplace3.0. These events are flanked by FTK (Technology For the Kitchen), EuroCucina’s collateral event and S.Project, the exhibition devoted to design products and decorative and technical furnishing solutions.
Under the umbrella of the Salone del Mobile.Milano, these events cover a net area of almost 210,000 square metres overall at the Rho Fiera Milano fairgrounds, showcasing more than 2,300 of the most dynamic and creative companies on the global market each year.
Over 370,000 professional visitors attend the fair each year, just under 70% of them from 188 other countries, along with more than 5,000 national and international journalists and around 27,500 members of the public at the weekend, making the Salone del Mobile.Milano the unmissable sectorwide appointment. Not to mention the collateral events that take place alongside it, invariably curated by leading international artists and designers, because the Salone is not just synonymous with business but also with culture.
