In 2022 we celebrated the 60th anniversary of beauty and innovation in interior design presented at ISaloni Milano. All design fans, design furniture manufacturers, and creators celebrated the 60th anniversary of the world-famous Salone del Mobile.Milano fair in Milan this year, Milan furniture salon.
In 2022, Milan's Salone del Mobile.Milano furniture fair has returned to its full-scale format. Given the 60th anniversary of this annual event and the exit from the pandemic, Italian President Sergio Mattarella jumpstarted this one of the most prestige events in the design world.
2.175 exhibiting firms, 27% foreign companies, of which 600 are young designers, participate in this magnificent show. There were 262.608 visitors from 173 countries for six days. 61% of buyers and industry professionals came from abroad."The 60th Salone del Mobile.Milano is an international success, and we are delighted with the results, which exceeded our expectations. The vast number of visitors is an excellent result, for which we have worked very hard. This year the event has confirmed its international significance and the cohesion of the design community," said Maria Porro, President of Salone del Mobile.Milano.
The environmental component was a focal point of this year's event. Both at the level of organizing and holding the fair and at the level of developed solutions, the environmental aspects of modern design took the central part at many significant presentations such as the "Design with Nature" exposition, at the SaloneSatellite and the stands of a large number of independent designers.
All this has made the Milan Furniture Show an international podium for entrepreneurial ideas and technological solutions that can contribute to protecting the natural environment and the more efficient use of resources in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Many visitors also visited the Royal Palace, where the Milan Furniture Salon presented the production "Scatola Magica" ("The Magic Box"), which ran there until June 17, 2022. This show was a multimodal presentation about emotions, quality, innovation, creativity, but above all, about the beauty of the Milan Furniture Salon.
Another direction of the exhibition was to emphasize the international significance of the Salone del Mobile.Milano and the city of Milan in design tourism. The Progetto Accoglienza (Hospitality Project) project, a result of cooperation between the Municipality of Milan, the Fiera Foundation, and the leading design schools of the city - New Academy, IED - European Institute of Design, and the School of Design at the Politecnico di Milano focused on these aspects of the event.
One hundred students at significant points in the city provided thousands of visitors with information about the city's transport, the exhibition, the accompanying events taking place in the town, and the main events in Milan. According to the survey results, the preferable way of transportation by visitors was "green" transportation solutions at the exhibition, such as trains and subways.
