Saba, Teatro Magico, ph. Beppe Brancato

The Unboxing Salone 2022 project previewed some of the products that will be unveiled at the Salone del Mobile.Milano 2022 in June. We retrace the previews through interviews with the designers and architects, protagonists of this new edition

The bathroom: from essential to emotional, the words of Roberto Palomba

“I want to give designers all over the world the perfect tools to create their own designs. So, it's important not to be focused only on one style”.


Designing with plants, the new collection Coloniae by Gionata Gatto

“...the furniture is made of parts that plants might need to survive or grow better, so in a way rather than designing for the plants, I’m designing with the plants”.


The En series by Cecilie Manz

“Collaborating with the Japanese company, which is a leader in the field of high-quality wood furnishing, designing a solid wood series came about naturally”.

Maddalena Casadei for Quadro

“They asked me to come up with a range of accessories for the brand that’s versatile enough to sit just as well in a kitchen or entrance way. Basically, Eccetera is a collection created for the bathroom but that can also be used elsewhere”.


Giusi Tacchini talks about her dual role as CEO-Art Director

Tacchini's new product “will become a new icon, with a distinctive personality, ageless, under the banner of masterly re-editions. This product encapsulates our history”.


The new Quarzi collection by Rodolfo Dordoni

“...The different types of pitchstone take on a hexagonal pattern. Thanks to the engraving, with colors ranging from gold to green and from red to dark brown, the patterns are turned into precious carpets”.

Amelia Pegorin: the challenge for art directors? Being storytellers

“In June, as well as Cristina Celestino’s Gala sofa and the Teatro Magico sofa designed by the 967 studio, there will also be a desk, an indoor/outdoor accessory and a bed by the designer Alain Gilles”.


The new collections by Federica Biasi for Gervasoni

“We wanted to mix different styles together to shape a new Gervasoni language, in a bid to communicate through a new style, without compromising the company’s identity or history”.


Vincent Van Duysen talks about his role as Creative Director

“This year’s theme at Salone truly matches the direction I took in my new designs which is steeped in openness and transparency, there is a common thread which is lightness and the will to enjoy nature, to be en plein air and adore breathing in oxygen”.
