Salone del Mobile Milano Shanghai

SaloneSatellite Shanghai

SaloneSatellite has been the first event to focus on young designers, instantly becoming the unrivalled place for interface with manufacturers, talent scouts and the most promising young designers, and is again running concurrently with the Salone del Mobile.Milano since 1998. Its creation was essentially a declaration of faith in the creative potential of designers under 35.

Many of the prototypes presented in the previous editions have gone into production, and many of the 10,000 designers who have taken part over the years, along with 270 international design schools, are now big names on the design scene.

From 2016, SaloneSatellite has been part of the Salone del Mobile.Milano Shanghai paying tribute to young Chinese creativity.

Again this year, at the SEC – Shanghai Exhibition Center – 39 young Chinese designers from the People’s Republic of China leading universities and design schools – the University of Arts in Shandong, the University of Technology in Beijing, Soochow University, the DeTao Masters Academy, the Polytechnic University School of Design in Hong Kong and the Sci-Tech University of Zhejiang – will present their work, harnessing both tradition and the future.

The common thread is the Southern Hemisphere, along with the video exhibition AFRICA & LATIN AMERICA Rising Design / Design Emergente, which made its debut in Milan in April and is now being held in Shanghai as a source of information and inspiration.


An international Jury will select the three winners.The winners of the award will be invited to participate to the SaloneSatellite Milano which will be held within the Salone del Mobile.Milano from 9 to 14 April 2019. 

In 2017, first prize was won by Shanghai-based Studio Tame for their Flux lamp, which draws on China’s artisan and artistic tradition. Second prize went to Haoxuan Zhong from Bejing/Chaoyang for the Patting stool, inspired by a traditional manual assembly technique requiring no particular tools. Xiaoqi Zhao from Beijing took third prize with Alone, a chair with a curvilinear frame that replicates the inviting shape of a leaf. Yingyu Zhang from Hangzhou was awarded a Special Mention for Cetus, a swing-chair/kneeler that ensures a correct posture for the body and mind, as well as being a homage to traditional culture.
