The faces of SaloneSatellite at the Milan Photofestival 2019

SaloneSatellite has always been the platform for highly creative young designers, keen to exploit the potential of the current technical and digital transformation to the full, unafraid of taking risks by focusing on study and experimentation while never losing sight of the artisan tradition and origin of design. This new generation of designers is being portrayed by a number of students from the Italian Institute of Photography and the course in stage photography and video at the Teatro alla Scala Academy. Their coming together has given rise to a fascinating video and photographic reportage, put together during SaloneSatellite 2019, held alongside the Salone del Mobile.Milano last April, which successfully captured the daily goings-on and excitement of the most prestigious international stage for emerging design.

From 3rd to 30th June, as part of the 2019 14th edition of Photofestival, the Milanese photographic exhibition promoted by the AIF – Italian Photo & Digital Imaging Association - and held concurrently with the 3rd edition of Milano Photo Week - Milan’s Cultural Centre hosts the Faces of Design at SaloneSatellite exhibition, the story of the protagonists told through images – along with their products and their emotions - and the activities, events and uniquely special atmosphere that permeates SaloneSatellite year after year.

This initiative is designed to support and compare the creative potential of the upcoming generations. The designers, all under 35, were shot in a special Photofestival photographic set located in the SaloneSatellite pavilions, in a witty and informal atmosphere, but were also captured discussing their creative paths with visitors to the event. The Faces of Design at SaloneSatellite exhibition focuses on the human side of SaloneSatellite, homing in on the thousands of faces that make it up through an infinitely curious lens.

This must-see show homes in on new promise and things that have yet to come, but are just around the corner.
