SaloneSatellite Shortlist For Cosmit 2015
For the 3rd consecutive year La Rinascente, Italy’s most luxurious department store, and SaloneSatellite, an international program from Salone del Mobile, the worlds most prestigious interiors design fair, partner to showcase 6 new designers whose creative works mark either a new way of working or a new use of materials.
The SaloneSatellite was created in 1998 for the express purpose of bringing together, in the same place and time, the most promising young designers from all over the world with the most important business people and talent scouts gathered in Milan to visit or exhibit at the Salone del Mobile. The Satellite immediately became an unparalleled observatory of young international creativity.
Each year 700 young designers and students of the most prestigious design schools and universities exhibit and exchange ideas at this unique showcase. This year six were selected for the Cosmit Satellite 2015 now on display at La Rinascente.
The six young designers for the SaloneSatellite 2015: Xuberance Studio (China), winner of the SaloneSatellite Award 2015; the study KIMU LAB (Taiwan); Robert Van Embricqs (Netherlands); AMWA Designs (UK); Fusillo Francesco (Italy); Markus Johansson (Sweden).
This years diverse winners were selected based upon product designs driven by originality and a desire to make a mark. The winners displayed designs that created new ways of working or leveraged new materials in a contemporary reinterpretation of past styles, that experimented with materials and innovative techniques.
The winning designs are currently on display in the “Design Supermarket”, in the home furnishings section. La Rinascente Galleria is located in the grand Palazzo Vittorio Emanuele II facing the famed Duomo Cathedral. The historical four-story department store is in the city center in a space of great attraction. Each year the location attracts millions of shoppers and tourists from around the world.
The six designers will be on display and available for sale, while supplies lasts, until Christmas. The next SaloneSatellite will be held on 12 to 17 April 2016 during Milan’s annual Salone del Mobile.
