Classic: Tradition in the Future

Classic: Tradition in the Future is the new 2017 Salone Internazionale del Mobile classic furniture and furnishing accessories exhibition format. Pavilions 2 and 4 take on a more homogenous, balanced and unbroken layout: a central “promenade” takes visitors around a space informed by values such as wealth of knowledge, craftsmanship and skill in the art of creating classic style furniture and objects.

A classic style that looks to the future, straddling timeless eras; a crosscutting home furnishing category that is, of itself, highly contemporary.

The atmosphere is contemporary and elegant, the cordial warmth of stylish spaces marked out by sophisticated, unique details blended with extremely high end materials, making for exhibits that transform traditional artisan skill into enduring chic luxury.

A small, stylish exhibition conceived by Simone Ciarmoli and Miguel Queda is being restaged to underscore this new concept. It takes the form of a “Warehouse”, in which classic pieces of furniture and accessories live on in the tradition of the future. Multi-award winning director Matteo Garrone’s stunning short film Before Design: Classic will be screened in a small theatre space, stirring infinite emotions that endure over time and are projected into the future.
