space&interiors – organized by MADE expo, the leading trade show for architecture and the building construction industry - a ground breaking marketing- and business-centred event showcasing the finest architectural and design finishes. The only event to be linked permanently with the Salone del Mobile.Milano, space&interiors will take the center stage during the Milan Design Week. At The Mall Porta Nuova, in the Milan’s Brera Design District, surfaces, flooring, doors and interior finishings will be featured in a distinctive display curated by Migliore+Servetto Architects.
space&interiors will be disclosing the various component parts of a series of living spaces, from walls and ceilings to surfaces and materials, suggesting different interpretations and giving the visitor a new map for discovering home interiors, in which every element plays a starring role. Home interiors derive their identity from the relationship between these elements in terms of the expressive, functional and innovative properties of the materials, the technology, the lighting, the acoustics and the tactile experience.

space&interiors is a project based around the identity of living and is geared to exploring the new opportunities born of the summation of various factors, such as materials, components and finishings as key drivers for defining the quality of the environments in which we live. Inhabiting a space means interacting with one’s environment, touching it, taking stock of the objects, the surfaces; this has sparked the need to create an event with the relationship between man and material at its core, resting on a few basic principles: the culture of residential behaviours, the structure of objects, our physical horizons as represented by surfaces, floors, doors …
‘"space&interiors was conceived expressly to facilitate the search for the identity that lies at the root of every architectural idea, as the history of contemporary Italian architecture has shown, its success derives precisely from placing detail at the very heart of design,” say the architects.
