In 2010 – twelve years after it started – SaloneSatellite extended its range by coming up with something intended to further boost the visibility of emerging designers and their interface with the companies, bolstering the connection between supply and demand, between entrepreneurs and designers, between creativity and production.
The SaloneSatellite Award provides its young competitors coming every year from about 38 countries with a further layer of visibility. Designers taking part in SaloneSatellite are asked to bring along one or more projects dovetailing with the goods on show at the Salone del Mobile.Milano exhibitions. This project will be part of the SaloneSatellite Award exhibition. Each year, a different jury of experts awards prizes for the three best projects and also confers a number of special mentions.
