Wallpaper* July Issue

“SaloneSatellite 2022, themed ‘Designing for our Future Selves / Designing for Our Tomorrows’, takes place in the grand setting of Salone del Mobile 2022. At the heart of the ‘design under 35 exhibition’, 600 emerging creatives reflect on the world that will be, and the role that objects will play in future living – also, they see SaloneSatellite as a key platform to gain acknowledgement by an international audience, as well as a bridge between creativity and business. […] ‘I’m incredibly happy because all of my children did extremely well,’ exclaims Marva Griffin Wilshire, the soul and the curator of the event, who also presented the Salone Satellite Award, now at its 11th edition. ‘As one can see going around, creativity is everywhere, as well innovation. For example, the word sustainability is so much in fashion now, yet I have been seeing the issue of sustainability for so many years at the Satellite.’ The jury, led by Paola Antonelli, selected three projects (plus special mentions) that ‘stand out because of the message they embody, focusing not just on the formal incisiveness of their design but also their sustainable, communicative, interactive and ludic element, essential for the lives of adults and children now and, hopefully, also in the future’." (full article)
