Salone Del Mobile in fair ground invited suppliers, designers, architects and visitors from all over the world in the beginning of April. This year’s manifesto was ‘Ingenuity.’ The three keywords determine the content of the exhibition; first, Innovation; second, Industry and third, Vision. It is as it is pointed by the Salone Del Mobile, the significant names celebrated ‘important anniversaries. ‘Natuzzi’ and ‘IPE’ are in their sixty years in the business, whereas ‘Visionnaire’ and ‘MDF Italia’ are 15 and 10 years of their anniversaries.
The exhibitions- which I prefer to use exhibition since almost all products are the result of the best design- are mind-blowing and give lots of hints for the not only this year’s focus but also the clues about the future trends. The new designers had the chance to exhibit their products at ‘Salone Satellite’ under the theme of ‘personification.’ Having said this, the Salone Del Mobile news letter pointed that it is all about ‘perspective’- that is finding new vanishing points.
Hybrid and Transverse –
The workplace design has changed since the cubicle designs of the 1980s. Today we are talking about the co-working spaces, sharing spaces, digital nomads, etc. in Salone Del Mobile, we observed that the direct reflection of transformation of the workplace was taken in the fair ground. It has said that in the fair the exhibition of workplace in the halls is disappeared. It is distributed throughout the entire trade fair area.
A direct and reflected consequence of the social transformation of the work area, which has become a flexible, dynamic space, open to contamination and sharing.– Salone Del Mobile
It is important for Salone Del Mobile that we should learn about and understand the future and necessary changes in the spaces we shared with others, and the starting point for the development of ideas capable of responding to new market needs.
The Concept of Office –
A deconstructed place, without fixed workstations, where the flexibility of movable partition systems and furnishings dominates the space to adopt changes in working methods, attention to privacy and concentration, which translates into sound insulation and focus work areas, up to the most original office capsule.– Salone Del Mobile
