Following the successful launch of the last edition of xLux the Salone Internazionale del Mobile has continued its updating activities and brought in an innovative format for classic furniture and furnishing accessories, in Pavilions 2 and 4, under a new name, Classic: Tradition in the future, and with a more homogeneous, balanced and fluid layout. A central “promenade” takes visitors into a space that draws on values such as patrimony of knowledge, craftsmanship and the skills needed to create classic furniture and objects.
A small, stylish exhibition devised 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.
