Happy birthday Salone del Mobile!

The world’s most long-awaited design event, the Salone del Mobile, is about to open its doors to the great public and it will do so in celebration dress, to mark this year’s big number! In fact, this will be the 60th edition of the internationally most important event in the world of design, which has been held in Italy for sixty years.

From 7 to 12 June, Milan will host the trade fair in Rho, as always accompanied by other major events, the Fuori Salone and the lesser-known but now highly anticipated SaloneSatellite.

The 2022 programme will feature more than 2,000 exhibitors, including over 600 young designers. To celebrate the anniversary after two difficult years due to the pandemic, President Maria Porro commissioned Mario Cucinella to create the main installation with the significant title ‘Design with Nature’. “If the events of the last few years have made us rediscover the value of sociality and sharing,” says the architect, “this feeling of ours still has to find a balance with what surrounds us, both with the spaces we live in and the territories we occupy, and with the resources we have”.

While waiting, therefore, to discover the big event, we would like to point out that after the Supersalone experience, a calendar of Talks curated by Chiara Alessi, Maria Cristina Didero and Beatrice Leanza is back.
