Salone del Mobile.Milano is gearing up for its return to international limelight with the 56th edition, which will open from April 4 to 9, 2017 at the Fiera Milano Rho. With a display area exceeding 200,000 square meters, the event confirms its place as the benchmark for quality and innovation thanks to the broad and comprehensive range of products on offer – from furniture and furnishings to lighting and workspaces – and two concurrent events, as well as its place as a forum for ideas.
Salone del Mobile holds enormous value as an international showcase for creativity and a forum for industry professionals. Some 2,000 exhibitors will be showing their products, with more than 300,000 visitors expected to attend from over 165 different nations.
Chairman Roberto Snaidero says: “A showcase for Italian and international furnishing excellence, the Salone del Mobile is putting the finishing touches to its fifty-sixth edition, which once again offers a unique opportunity for world industry leaders to unveil their products. The wide, exclusive range of commercial offerings on show attracts more than 300,000 industry visitors from over 165 countries, as well as premium media outlets from around the globe and of course the general public. Our close partnership with the city of Milan is of vital importance, confirming the city and the event’s status as capitals of design.”
The Salone Internazionale del Mobile is subdivided into three sections: Classic, Design Design and xLux, a sector dedicated to timeless luxury reinterpreted with a contemporary touch, which launched successfully last time round. Biennial events taking place alongside the Salone offer enormous synergies: Euroluce in Pavilions 9-11 and 13-15, and Workplace3.0 in Pavilions 22-24, as well as the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition and SaloneSatellite.
Euroluce, which is being staged for the 29th time this year, showcases the best the world lighting market has to offer, from decorative products to technical lighting for application in industrial, street, entertainment and hospital system environments, home automation and lighting systems, sources and sustainability and light pollution.
Workplace3.0 – on for the 17th time – is a leading-edge concept-driven exhibition dedicated to workspace dedicated to workspace design and technology; an event that responds to rapid changes in the world of work and emerging market needs. The finest furnishings for offices, banks and insurance companies, post offices and public environments will be on show, along with seating for offices and communities, components for acoustics, internal partitions and coverings, furnishings for offices, audio/video technology, technical installations and security systems.
In its twentieth year, the SaloneSatellite will once again offer a place for young people selected from five continents to meet business people, architects, interior designers and the press in Pavilions 22 and 24.
space&interiors, the only event linked permanently with the Salone del Mobile.Milano and devoted to architectural finishes, will have its second edition this year. It will shine the spotlight on a sector that is attracting increasing attention from designers and architects. The event will showcase surfaces, flooring, doors and internal finishings in an evocative setting curated by the Migliore+Servetto Architects practice.
