Last February 8th we went to the press preview of the upcoming edition Salone del Mobile. The location was really fantastic: Dolce & Gabbana headquarter in Milan!
A great event with many guests and lots of news under the claim of campaign slogan “Be the First to see the Latest” to confirm the Salone’s role worldwide.

Two biennial exhibitions will be running in full synergy with the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Euroluce and Workplace3.0, the latter one dedicated to the workspace, as well as the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition and SaloneSatellite.
Euroluce showcases the very best the lighting market has to offer, from decorative products to illuminotechnical products – used in the industrial, street, theatrical and hospital lighting sectors – as well as lighting and home automation systems, light sources and lighting application software, all with a particular focus on energy saving, environmental sustainability and light pollution.
Workplace3.0 – now into its 18th edition – is based on an innovative concept based on design and technology for designing workspaces and is an event that responds to the rapid change in the world of work and the latest market demands.
The exhibition will showcase the ultimate furnishing solutions for offices, banks, insurance offices, post offices and public spaces; chairs for offices and community spaces, acoustic products, internal partitions and coverings, office furnishing accessories, audio-visual technologies and technical and security systems.
SaloneSatellite is an unmissable event: 650 designers – of whom 30% from outside of Italy. It brings together a selection of young designers from 5 continents with entrepreneurs, architects, interior designers and the press. The theme of the 20th edition is “DESIGN is …?”, an open, topical and crucial question.
The 20 years of SaloneSatellite will be celebrated with the SaloneSatellite 20 Year Collection – a special edition of bespoke pieces designed by international designers.
The Salone del Mobile.Milano is online at www.salonemilano.it and social channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube and Flickr).
