From 7 to 12 June the curtain will rise on the 60th edition of the Salone del Mobile Milano which will focus on quality, innovation, beauty and, today more than ever, on the theme of sustainability.
The goal of the 60th edition of the Salone del Mobile Milano is ambitiouis: demonstrating that it is possible and absolutely necessary to go back to organizing major international events in the presence merging criteria of sustainability and environmental attention with the production of furniture.
Focus on sustainability
The Salone del Mobile Milano has launched and disseminated a series of guidelines that help exhibitors and those who design and build stands to follow basic sustainability criteria. It is suggested that they prefer the use of reusable materials (such as wood), recycled (upcycling), low environmental impact or FSC and PEFC certified materials. To consider the logistical sustainability of the sources of supply of the materials themselves.
To adopt environmentally safe products and equipment in the realization of the fittings. To avoid wasting materials, electricity and water; to make sure that “adaptability” and “disassembly for reuse” are the key principles in the choice of the components that will make up the project, already having in mind where and how they can be reused or disposed of.
The Show undertakes to follow the same recommendations in the creation of the common areas at the fair.
The supply chain focuses on young people
In doing so, the 60th edition of the Salone del Mobile.Milano will be the stage for the progress made by creatives, designers, brands and companies on this issue and, involving the young talents of the SaloneSatellite, will bet on the new generations who, grown up in an era of crisis, aspire to a more equitable and responsible production and fruition.
The 2022 Events will bring together more than 2,000 exhibitors, including over 600 young designers under 35: everyone will be able to express their identity to the fullest, in full creative freedom. At the fair, the visitor will walk inside the stands which will be, at the same time, architectural and communicative elements. Spaces that will welcome visitors to show the new collections and lifestyle concepts of the individual brands. An immersive visit experience that has always distinguished and made the Salone del Mobile unique in the international trade fair panorama.
