SaloneSatellite is the jewel in the crown of the Salone del Mobile.Milano, from 16th to 21st April 2024. It’s the very first event to have devoted particular attention to young designers, instantly becoming the meeting place par excellence for entrepreneurs/talent scouts and the most promising designers. Its creation – in 1968 thanks to Marva Griffin Wilshire, who is still its curator – was an act of faith in the creative potential of creatives under 35. Many of the prototypes presented at previous editions have gone into production and many of the 14,000 designers, along with 270 international design schools, that have taken part, have become prominent names on the design scene. An outpost of creativity, ruled from the very beginning by the belief in experimentation and the courage of those leaving college to venture out into the big bad world, this visionary hub explores the design world of the future, edition after edition, reflecting on how to tackle the challenges of the future from a design point of view. In an age characterised by swingeing changes in environmental, economic and social balances, it will be young designers who will provide valuable information that will serve to guide us. Each year, the SaloneSatellite Award rewards three of the most meretricious projects and assigns up to two Honourable Mentions. All the competing prototypes are assessed by an international jury and showcased in a single collective exhibition. SaloneSatellite is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2024 with a large exhibition at the Triennale di Milano, at which designers first encountered on the cusp of their careers will present their most recent projects, already in production or not.
