Our perspective on the 2015 Salone del Mobile in Milan

Every year in April, Milan erupts with energy for the ‘Salone del Mobile’. You go to the Salone and ‘Fuori Salone’ for ideas not so much to see products. It’s an intense few days to concentrate on design, exchange ideas with colleagues and to be inspired. The event requires strategic planning as it’s vast. 

Here are a couple of memorable installations, one from the fairground which included Workplace this year.

A sculptural installation by Michele de Lucchi, one of Milan’s historical figures in design, ‘The Walk’. A ‘belvedere’ for unexpected encounters, a pathway through and over the four concept spaces. Different environments to enhance creativity and productivity ‘The Club’ , ‘Free Man’ ‘Lab’ and ‘Agora’. The Lab with its carpenters’ workbench picked up on the craft theme and extensive use of wood for many of the stands.

Elsewhere at the fairground there were many examples of adjustable height desks and tables to be seen reflecting the interest around health, encouraging movement and standing .

A free standing acoustic screen creates a sculptural backdrop, just one of the many acoustic devices and treatments to be seen.

Many of Milan’s hidden courtyards and gardens become populated with various installations for the week.

Here the botanical gardens of Brera hosted ‘A journey through scents’, an interesting and inspiring experience in a beautiful garden.
