2014 Salone del Mobile Furniture Preview
By Kelsey Keith / Published by Dwell

For the 53rd annual Salone Internazionale del Mobile (cosmit.it), held every April at the Rho fairgrounds outside of Milan, we'll see the debut of Tom Dixon (who has shown for the past two years in town at MOST) and a raft of iconic furniture reissues. The hallmark exhibition in pavilion 9, Where Architects Live, will include installations on residential living designed by the likes of recent Pritzker Prize winner Shigeru Ban, David Chipperfield, Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, Zaha Hadid, Marcio Kogan, and Bijoy Jain. Don't miss pavilions 13, 14, and 15, where you'll find everyone's favorite freewheeling design exhibition: Salone Satellite, curated by Marva Griffin Wilshire.

Francesca Molteni writes, "A table, a window, a royal square, statues and horses. In Paris, Place des Vosges, Doriana and Massimiliano Fuksas’s home. Original Jean Prouvé furniture, and masses of artworks, from Fontana to Paladino. On the threshold, antique warriors stand guard over the house and protect it, like custodians awaiting the return of its traveling architects." Photo by Aki Furudate.
