The SaloneSatellite was created in 1998 for the express purpose of bringing together, in the same place and time, the most promising young designers from all over the world with the most important business people and talent scouts gathered in Milan to visit or exhibit at the Salone del Mobile. The Satellite immediately became an unparallelled observatory of young international creativity: many of the pieces presented as prototypes in the fourteen previous editions have gone into production, and many of the participating designers have become important figures in the star system.
Each year 700 young designers and students of the most prestigious design schools and universities exhibit and exchange ideas at this unique showcase. The proposals are examined and evaluated by a prestigious Selection Committee drawn from the same pool of international professionals from the world of design, architecture and media.
The next SaloneSatellite will be held from 14 to 19 April 2015.
