After three years, Europe’s most influential interior and design fair will finally return to its original spring date of 18-23 April in Milan.
In the past three years, like all major events, the Salone del Mobile has had to contend with the horror of the coronavirus: some fairs were canceled and others had to be held in the autumn instead of the traditional spring season. Next year, the organizers will finally return to the usual April date, and with it, more lessons learned from the pandemic, so the keyword for this year’s fair will be connections.
Although the venue will be the usual Milan complex, the layout will be completely reorganized to ensure better flow between the different areas—the design was entrusted to the Milanese architectural firm Lombardini22. Much more emphasis is also being placed on the design of the public spaces, as visitors come not only to see what’s new from the companies exhibiting, but also to make new connections.
Next year will see the arrival of a biennial partner exhibition, Euroluce, which focuses on lighting, and SaloneSatellite, which will showcase emerging designers, this time under the title Building the (im)possible. Process, Progress, Practice.
