the salone is as a laboratory for experimentation and cross-pollution, a place for interface and new opportunities for reflection on the world of design and designing.
salone del mobile.milano has been postponed amid growing concerns over the coronavirus outbreak in italy, show officials have confirmed that the show originally scheduled for 21 – 26 april 2020, will be rescheduled for june 16 – 21. the show will still be held at rho fiera milano. statement from salone del mobile below:
“following an extraordinary meeting today of the board of federlegno arredo eventi, and in view of the ongoing public health emergency, the decision has been taken to postpone the upcoming edition of the salone del mobile.milan to 16th – 21st june.
confirmation of the change of date for the trade fair – strongly supported by the mayor of milan giuseppe sala – means that the manufacturers, in a major show of responsibility, will be able to present their finalised work to an international public that sees the annual appointment with the salone del mobile.milano as a benchmark for creativity and design.”
the 2020 59th edition of the salone del mobile.milano has been suspended. the 60th edition will now take place from 13th to 18th april 2021. the decision to postpone was made by the board of the salone del mobile.milano in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that is spreading to almost every country in the world.
the situation that led to the original change of date from april to june, announced on 25th february, has fundamentally changed. although we were determined to keep to the june date, to allow the annual event to take place as planned, the present, unprecedented circumstances and medium-term uncertainties now mean that this year’s salone can no longer go ahead.
the 2021 edition, which will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the salone, will be a special event for the entire sector. for the first time ever, all the biennial exhibitions will be held in conjunction with the salone internazionale del mobile, the international furnishing accessories exhibition, workplace3.0, s.project and salonesatellite. this means that eurocucina, ftk (technology for the kitchen) and the international bathroom exhibition will also take place next year, along with euroluce, which was already scheduled for 2021.
this single, great sector-wide trade fair will represent a fresh opportunity to pull together to revitalize our businesses, the entire supply chain that works in synergy with the salone, and milan.
the international event in the design world dedicated to the under-35s.
salonesatellite was the first event to focus on young designers, instantly becoming the unrivaled place for interface with manufacturers, talent scouts and the most promising young designers, and since 1998 runs again concurrently with the salone del mobile.milano.
its creation was essentially a declaration of faith in the creative potential of designers under 35. many of the prototypes presented in the previous editions have gone into production, and many of the 10,000 designers who have taken part over the years, along with 270 international design schools, are now big names on the design scene. indeed, 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.
started in 2010, the salonesatellite award is a further opportunity to facilitate contact between young designers and businesses.
