Young Designers on Display in Milan
It's no secret that during the annual Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, one of our favorite stops is SaloneSatellite, the portion of the fair devoted to young designers under the age of 35. Curated by an esteemed jury of international design stars and spearheaded by the indomitable Marva Griffin-Wilshire, SaloneSatellite is one of the most important opportunities for young designers to get noticed by the world at large. This year 11 designers have been selected to display and sell their creations for a short time during the holiday season (September 27-December 25), at Milan's premier shopping destination—the Design Supermarket at La Rinascente. Here we share a sneak peek at the offerings from each of the 11 young designers.
