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. In 2016, SaloneSatellite has been part of the first edition Salone del Mobile.Milano Shanghai paying tribute to young Chinese creativity.
This year, at the SEC – Shanghai Exhibition Center – 50 young Chinese designers from the People’s Republic of China leading universities and design schools – Beijing Forestry University, Beijing University of Technology, China Central Academy of Fine Arts and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design – presented their work, harnessing both tradition and the future.
