SaloneSatellite’s mission is to bolster the ties between research, design and industry. Open to designers under 35, it aims to facilitate the relationship between businesses and young designers preparing to enter the profession and the market, post-study.
SaloneSatellite also presents work by universities and schools specialising in design. This involvement is geared to staying up to date with the ways in which the educational system is changing around design, what priorities are indicated to the students and the research processes, how the students’ intellectual and practical abilities are being stimulated and therefore their understanding of the problems and consequences of certain production methods.
Started in 2010, the SaloneSatellite Award is a further opportunity to facilitate contact between young designers and businesses.
