For the 9th consecutive year, SaloneSatellite and la Rinascente come together to create an extraordinary project: to enhance the most authentic expression of the inspiration and skill of 10 international design studios. They were distinguished last April among all the participants in the event by their furnishings, outstandingly appealing by their evident ecological conscience and awareness of design, plus a certain fascination with the rough, the unfinished, the seemingly casual, the raw or the recycled.
From 5 October to 6 November, 14 new eco-friendly objects that simplify the project and are outstanding by research and versatility are on display and on sale at the Design Supermarket. Experimentation, innovation, craft skills, sustainability and inclusion are the threads uniting all these objects and furnishings, in which the striking lightweight design, sometimes very light, softens the forms and uses less material in harmony with an increasingly accentuated environmental sensibility. These are products that show young designers are unafraid to get involved by experimenting, risking and sustaining a greener future. Here are the chosen objects and their authors.
