Also this year the Milan Design Week is coming. This is still the most important event in Europe - and in the world - to see good design, whitin the fair and through the city. I love to go to Milan Fair specially to see SaloneSatellite, with its young designers. These fresh and crazy ideas will be exhbited from 17 to 22 of april in the pavillions 22/24

This is an excerpt from the new catalog: "An important moment in the life of the event dedicated to designers under 35: this year the SaloneSatellite celebrates 15 years of commitment and faith in young creativity - Marva Griffin Willshire, exhibition curator said - This year the SaloneSatellite looks toward the future through the theme “Design<->Technology”: a felicitous pairing reflecting the ways that technology plays an ever greater role in our everyday lives and inspires the world of design".
