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 19 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 from 23 to 25 November – 53 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 – will present their work, harnessing both tradition and the future.


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 17-22 April 2018. An international Jury – formed by architects Mario Bellini and Piero Lissoni; designer Alessandro Copetti; exhibitors Andrea Turri-Turri, Carlo Urbinati-Foscarini and Carola Bestetti-Living Divani; editorial director Wang Xu-AD China; correspondent Rita Fatiguso-Il Sole 24 Ore; professor Caterina Tiazzoldi; Patrizia Malfatti, International Press Office Coordination Manager, Salone del Mobile.Milano, and Marva Griffin, Founder and Curator of SaloneSatellite will select the three winners.


Last year, the first prize went to Fang Gao for the sideboard “In-between dimensions”, inspired by the light filtered from the trees in the woods: an elegant game of light, shadow, grid and light colors. Weiwei Wu with “Line series: shelf”, a bookshelf in which the absence of vertical supports makes it a sculpture piece, won the second prize. The third prize went to Anqi Tang for the small tea table “Softwood”: 6 blocks of different forms and functions with a waterproof and non-toxic surface.
