700 designers, over 37,000 visitors, almost 3,000 sqm of exhibition spaces. These are the numbers of the 2015 edition of the SaloneSatellite, collateral event that will accompany the Salone del Mobile also this year.
The SaloneSatellite is the first event focusing on young designers and architects, either students or professionals, that creates a big exhibition space displaying new prototypes for home and office, meeting point par excellence between talent scouts and the most promising designers. Its creation in 1998 was an act of trust towards the creative potential of under-35 talents. Since then, more than 10,000 designers and 270 international schools of design have taken part in it. Among the participants of the previous editions, there are designers now known all over the globe, such as: Matali Crasset (France), Patrick Jouin (France), Satyendra Pakhalé (India), Tomoko Azumi (Japan), Okisato - Nendo (Japan), Harri Koskinen (Finland), Ilkka Suppanen (Finland), Xavier Lust (Belgium), Front (Sweden), Sean Yoo - Cory Grosser (USA), Nao Tamura (USA), Johan Lindstén (Sweden), Daniel Rybakken (Norway), Federico Churba (Argentina), Rodolfo Agrella – Anabella Georgi (Venezuela), Nika Zupank (Serbia), Francesca Lanzavecchia (Italy), Alessandra Baldereschi (Italy), Donata Paruccini (Italy), Carlo Contin (Adriano Design) (Italy), Paolo Ulian (Italy), Lorenzo Damiani (Italy), Benedetta Mori Ubaldini (Italy), Davide Groppi (Italy), Studio Adriano (Italy), Sebastian Herkner (Germany), Gam Fratesi (Denmark), Sebastian Wrong (UK), Álvaro Catalán de Ocón (Spain), Pedro Paulo Franco (Spain), Walter Archela (Braszl).
In the 2016 edition the SaloneSatellite, curated by Marva Griffin, will once again look beyond with a theme spurring its participants to explore the relationship between science, materials and design: “New materials, new design” is the theme of the nineteenth edition of the event and, as every year, a Selection Board composed by internationally known design and communication players will shortlist 700 participants, including many international design schools.
The SaloneSatellite Award, getting to its seventh edition, will also continue, asking participants to present one or more projects related to the product sector of the biennial events occurring alongside the Salone del Mobile – in particular, the 2016 edition will involve EuroCucina and Salone Internazionale del Bagno.
Hotbed of emerging creativity, incubator for the talents of tomorrow, place of discovery of new visions for future design: the SaloneSatellite is a step forward in the contact between demand and offer, entrepreneurs and designers, creativity and production. That is what makes the event unmissable.
