Salone del Mobile has been one of the leading design events since its first edition in 1961. Every year, the city of Milan bursts with creativity and innovation thanks to this incredible event. Today, we’re showing you all you can’t miss at iSaloni this April!
Launched in Milan in 1961 as a vehicle for promoting Italian exports of furnishing and accessories, the Salone del Mobile is the global benchmark event for the furnishing and design sector. The Salone is held in Milan in April every year, during Milan Design Week, 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.
Italian Interior Designers
Spanish by birth, and Italian by choice, Patricia Urquiola was born in Oviedo, Spain and studied architecture in Madrid before graduating from the Milan Politecnico in 1989. She learned her craft in Italy and opened a studio in Milan in 2001, where she has developed a truly global enterprise. At Salone del Mobile, she showcases her work and collaborations with other brands, like with Kartell.
Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran invested in their individual experience with the profession and study of Design, Art and Fashion, and founded DIMORESTUDIO in 2003. Since that moment, they have designed and carried out every project in a personal and recognizable way: objects created by historical design masters live together with reclaimed materials and other “bespoke” objects to create and forge a particular atmosphere. A timeless visual and emotional pathway.
Besides his architecture career alongside Patricia Viel, Antonio Citterio has an amazing path as a designer. In the 2018 edition of Salone del Mobile, the designers shined with his special collections with B&B Italia. That collaboration has repeated itself once again, being presented at the 2019 edition.
Throughout his career, Pesce’s exuberant work has experimented with colour and industrial materials like polyurethane foam, resin, and plastics. Pesce’s brings his collectable design pieces to Salone del Mobile, showing Italy’s strong connection with craftsmanship.
Fornasetti’s ‘Theme and Variations’ have come to comprise hundreds of transformations, alterations, ironic re-imaginations and decorative re-interpretations over the years. The artist deployed his infinite imagination towards Cavalieri’s melancholy eyes and plump lips, adapting the face to be framed in a variety of surreal scenarios and situations. This amazing interpretation has taken Italian craftsmanship across the globe.
Starting from the end of the 90s, the Nilufar Gallery knew how to cut out its own space and become the reference point to lovers of historical design as well as to people following the evolution of contemporary design, above all within that more learned, poetic and visionary area shifting between production and contemporary art. Nina Yashar, the gallery founder, works with her sister Nilu and a team of five people.
Gallery Rossana Orlandi was opened in 2002 in a former tie Factory in the Magenta neighbourhood, the gallery has been forecasting along the years new and upcoming designers and establishing the premise as one of the most revered platforms for avant-garde Design and Lifestyle. This is definitely a must-see spot during Salone del Mobile.
