The much-beloved Milan Design Week 2018 took place from April 17 to 22 and with it comes a set of design events and exhibitions that raise the concept and future of design, such as Salone Del Mobile – the annual worldwide furniture exhibition; and Fuorisalone – a set of events spread across several sections of the city.
Milan Design Week was a week full of events that involve the cooperation of luxury brands and designers, exhibitions throughout the various point of the city. These stands allowed creatives the possibility to display and challenge themselves in an atmosphere devoted to innovation and growth. They were also ideal for specialists and visitants to explore new ideas and designs as well as engaging with the key figures of this industry.

The most important design events are:
Salone del Mobile
Salone del Mobile, the most recognised design fair in the world, reunites in just one week more than three hundred thousand designers, architects, critics and trend hunters for a week, innovation, design, technology and attractions to make from this event, one of the best global experiences for professionals.
This year Salone presents a city-based project Living Nature. La Natura dell’Abitare developed with the Carlo Ratti Associati (CRA) international design and innovation studio, will be in Piazza del Duomo. The Salone del Mobile ponders the possible reconciliation of man and nature with an emotive installation that enters into the debate on the value of sustainable living.
SaloneSatellite was the first event to focus on young designers, instantly becoming the unusual place for interface with manufacturers, talent scouts and the most promising young designers, and since 1998 runs again concurrently with the Salone del Mobile.
During the Fuorisalone, many locations often become a co-protagonist of the event. Many important brands located in the design districts introduce their new collections and host special events with live music and entertainment.
