“A stand-alone moment at which culture and industry become an international benchmark - from the creative genius displayed by the architects and designers and from the huge numbers of visitors who flocked to Milan to check out the latest innovations at the Salone and experience the buzz of the city”, said Claudio Luti, President of the Salone del Mobile, as one of the world’s more popular events closes for another year.
343,602 attendees in 6 days from 165 countries marked a 10% increase in previous years. More than 2,000 exhibitors overall, 34% of them from other countries, were split between the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition, Euroluce, Workplace3.0 and SaloneSatellite.
Trying to keep track of all of the installations and all of the designs is a full-time job. So we have let our fingers do the walking around Milan for you and found a few websites to give you some updates and keep you up to speed with what our Australian designers are doing over there as well.
