Salone Satellite / Fabbrica del Vapore / Milan • Italy


Following in the footsteps of the exhibition A Dream Come True held in 2007 to mark the first ten years of SaloneSatellite, we are presenting a new exhibition – again curated by Beppe Finessi and designed by Ricardo Bello Dias. SaloneSatellite. 20 Years of New Creativity which also features graphic design by Leonardo Sonnoli, is an attempt to rethink the entire history of the event, looking back at the work of all the designers who looked to SaloneSatellite for advice and dialogue with the manufacturing and critical world, and for contact with other young designers engaged in thinking up new design ideas, in the domestic realm particularly, in different parts of the world.

SaloneSatellite. 20 Years of New Creativity brings together more than 500 projects by as many designers, creators who have taken three consistent and diverse directions, corresponding to three different design methods and approaches. These three great design fields have informed the exhibition concept, an arrangement in three acts, corresponding to the three aisles in the large Fabbrica del Vapore “Cathedral”, the deeply fascinating and historical building hosting the exhibition.
