The 54th edition of the Salone del Mobile will throw open its doors at the Rho Milan Fairgrounds from Tuesday 14th to Sunday 19th April, and OBJEKT©International will be there. Along with the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition and SaloneSatellite – both annual exhibitions – and the biennial Euroluce / International Lighting Exhibition and Workplace3.0/SaloneUfficio, quality and innovation, major collateral events and a comprehensive, wide range of goods are the ingredients that make the Salone such an unmissable event.
Euroluce will build on its mission to reveal the very latest in indoor and outdoor lighting appliances and special use lighting, as well as lighting systems, light sources and lighting application software.
Workplace3.0, an exhibition underpinned by an innovative concept, devoted to design and technology in workplace planning, will bring together the different components of the workplace in a single space, showcasing proposals and design solutions for living the workplace in its many different contemporary interpretations.
The Workplace3.0 pavilions will also host ‘The Walk’, a great workplace-based installation, signed by Michele De Lucchi which will characterise the upcoming Salone del Mobile and the office world in particular.
Another event – ‘IN ITALY’ – will be curated by the architectural practice Four in the Morning, focusing on a design by architect Dario Curatolo, featuring a number of manufacturers and a select group of designers, planners and architects, who will tackle the issue of products, design and planning. Videos will take the audience through a virtual exploration of Italian know-how.
SaloneSatellite, the unrivalled opportunity for interaction between young designers, businessmen, architects, interior designers and the press, will be back in Pavilions 22 and 24, alongside Workplace3.0. Now in its 18th edition, the event allows emerging young designers to showcase their products and also gives them a chance of being selected to take part in the 6th edition of the SaloneSatellite Award competition, for the 3 best prototypes on exhibit, relating to the goods categories on show.
