The Salone del Mobile 2021

salone del mobile 2021

The Salone del Mobile 2021: the 60th anniversary edition will be held in September 2021.

salone del mobile 2021

President Claudio Luti said that the 2021 edition will be the symbol of a new start for companies and the design community; the September period, from 5ft to 10th, has been chosen as the safest date for exhibitors and visitors. All the exhibitions will be present and the digital one will also make its debut.

This will be a special edition because it will celebrate 60 years of a leading event in the world that in 2020 was stopped by the health emergency and in 2022 will take place again in April.

salone del mobile 1

This is the expected announcement of the date, made by Claudio Luti, president of Salone del Mobile.Milano, who arrived after a series of reflections and evaluations that involved Salone and Fiera Milano because they had to evaluate the best solutions to ensure the safety of exhibitors, professional visitors, architects, designers and buyers given the continuing health crisis taking into account that the 2019 edition had over 386 thousand visitors.

claudio luti

The 2021 edition will be special because the sectors, such as the kitchen and lighting, will also be on display every two years and, above all, because the physical salon will also be accompanied by the digital salon that will be present in all future editions. And that’s not all, once the Milan Show has restarted, the timing and modalities of the international initiatives in Moscow and Shanghai will be studied.

“There is a need and desire for the Salone in Milan. Clients and designers from all over the world, as well as the press that follows us at an international level, have asked us insistently in recent months for answers on the confirmation of the edition. And this answer has been given – stressed Luti again – We will be there and we will be even more beautiful and motivated as the companies that are working to design and produce the best possible design and product proposals. After such a long time of physical and social distancing in every field, we would like to be able to think about the Show of meeting and real confrontation. To be able to come back and get excited together again with a city animated with new intentions”.

“Happily involved” in the difficult definition of the exhibition calendar is the new CEO of Fiera Milano, Luca Palermo, who will be in office from next January 1st. “For us at Fiera it was also a moment to think about the restart through the most important Italian event and we worked because next September will be an important month for Milan. We have thought of enriching it with events and proposals by teaming up with Homi, so that in those days in Milan we will have the largest representation dedicated to the world of living and lifestyles, and there will also be fashion.” This is a strong signal, a sign of trust, of the ability to look ahead concretely as a system: Fiera Milano is at the service of companies, a platform that allows the relaunch of the Italian system and we are convinced that we will give a great signal to the country.

An experiment is also being considered with Sea Aeroporti di Milano and Politecnico di Milano in order to obtain a health passport for visitors.
The decision of the Salone del Mobile, to move the dates, follows by a few hours the decision to hold the fashion system events in March 2021. A great sign of optimism is therefore coming from Fiera di Milano, which manages to bring together the entire economic system of Milan and the Lombardy Region, with an estimated impact of around 8 billion euros.

Ideas to Decorate a Cozy Bedroom.

Ideas to decorate a cosy bedroom: a welcoming nest in a few steps.

flou beds collection

Relaxing in our own bedroom for a deep and restful sleep able to give us new energy: this is everyone’s dream, maybe at the end of a long day of work. To make it come true, it is important to furnish the room with care, creating a relaxing and restorative environment.

flou nathalie bed

There is no need to ask for help from a specialised designer or interior architect to create a warm and welcoming environment, capable of giving peace and serenity: just follow a few style tricks and work on a few simple details.

flou peonia bed

Decorate the walls.

If you desire to change the colour of the walls, we recommend relaxing colours such as blue and light blue; or very soft colours such as cream, pastel green or lilac.

flou notturno bed

Another idea could be to consider wallpaper, or wood-panelled walls or stylized floral decorations for a minimal and personalised style.

Decorative Elements.

Equally important are the furnishing accessories. If space permits, it is possible to furnish the room with a refined and elegant pouf and footrest. Placed near a coffee table, they will create a corner of privacy and relaxation where you can dedicate yourself to your hobbies, from reading to listening to music.

The Upholstery.

But in the bedroom the real protagonists are the fabrics, i.e. the upholstery of the bed, curtains, rug and furnishing accessories: choosing the right ones means revolutionizing the appearance of the room in a single stroke.

Cushions and Pillows.

To complete the bed area there are soft pillows to be placed over the blankets. The most appreciated are the rectangular or square ones which, if combined correctly with the linen and the walls of the room, can recreate suggestive plays of colour and make the room welcoming as well as chic.

The Praise of the Essential in Furnishing.

The praise of the essential in furnishing: how to renovate the house for the winter season.

&tradition furniture

Whether it’s furniture or furnishing accessories, almost all the designers’ projects for next winter have one thing in common: the praise of the essential. The object must be beautiful and useful in the sign of soft Modernism.

&tradition furniture 1

The Kitchen.

The kitchen has become the heart of the home, especially in this period of health emergency, increasingly technological and at the same time increasingly comparable to the status symbol of a supercar.

poliform kitchens

Italy is undoubtedly the home of top-of-the-range kitchens, combining culinary wisdom, traditional craftsmanship and excellence in design, all ingredients that make it the spearhead of the sector.

poliform kitchens 1

The Dining Room.

If the kitchen is considered the heart of the house, the dining room is its belly button and the table is its master. The trend for the new year is to mix high-tech structures with copper, bronze, raw iron, matt lacquered trellis-shaped or with crossed central legs with tops in various shapes, especially rectangular with acid-etched glass and ceramic finishes and solid wood with irregular edges in order to take up the vintage trend in a modern key.

The dining table will be accompanied by stylish seats conceived by the designers in the search for ideal proportions, enhancing the hand, eye and heart of the craftsman, with the seat upholstered in leather, eco-leather or nubuck and the legs upholstered in the same finish to highlight its importance. In Anglo-Saxon countries, large dimensions are usually preferred (250×100 cm. the most requested), while in other countries the size of 200×100 cm. is chosen.

The Living Room.

The most eclectic architects and interior designers prefer unusual shapes and finishes to decorate the living room, and more and more they tend to have their standard products customised (sometimes exaggeratedly) by manufacturers in order to give a touch of exclusivity to the environment, thus giving the customer the feeling of having purchased an unique product.

Minimalism is back, just a few pieces but of the highest quality, thanks to the made in Italy and its reinvented fundamentals in different segments and returned to the centre of moodboards all over the world.

The Outdoor.

In the eyes of the average consumer, the outdoors does not arouse the same reverential fear associated with indoor design, but since every outdoor space is potentially a space to be lived in, products intended for the general public are treated in the smallest detail on a par with indoor products, using a sophisticated style and using the reference models of great designers in the weather proof version.

Homage to Enzo Mari

enzo mari 1

Homage to Enzo Mari: the most intransigent and radical master of Italian design.

enzo mari

On the occasion of his recent death, an author’s portrait of the most intransigent and radical master of design in Italy, which “appears ever larger and richer and more complex than all the definitions used to define him”.

enzo mari works 1

Rigorous, severe and intransigent. These are just some of the adjectives with which in recent years almost everyone has tried to define the master Enzo Mari because of his very particular character and his countercurrent ideas.

enzo mari works 2

Indeed, he is the master of design who, more than anyone else, has tried to reflect on the social implications of the discipline. What he has always reiterated – even at the cost of being a little rude at times – that design is for everyone. Not for marketing. Not for glory. Not for prizes. Not for showrooms. Precious lesson. Lesson more current than ever, especially in the difficult period we are living in.

rexite delfina chair

Get the look with  Rexite Delfina chair

Enzo Mari’s works are characterised by a deliberate and conscious contradiction that once again confirms the most distinctive feature of his creative and design personality: at the same time against the system of goods but within the market, Mari is aware that the quality of the product cannot be separated from the quality of the production method.

enzo mari works 3

And it is precisely this awareness that makes him one of the most lucid witnesses of the often unresolved tensions running through the world of design, as well as one of the few designers still capable of questioning, even provocatively, the meaning and role of a project (his or someone else’s).

enzo mari works 4

Let’s think for example of his relationship with mass production: Enzo Mari sees this as an unmissable opportunity to democratize the world of objects and to circulate design products to the widest possible range of users, not limited by economic or class discrimination.

enzo mari box chair

Intolerant of the kitsch that – he says – dominates many current productions, Enzo Mari makes design the creative practice through which he tries to translate his egalitarian utopia and radical criticism of consumerism into tangible form.

enzo mari works 5

Enzo Mari was an artist and ideologist, a craftsman and philosopher, an anarchist and communist. Enzo Mari was a fierce critic of modernity (television, comics, cars, football…), but then very modern in the concept of almost all his projects.

Miniforms Itinerario V.02 Collection

miniforms ozz lamp

Miniforms Itinerario V.02 collection: eleven brand-new products, new reinterpretations of the past and much more!

miniforms itinerario vol 2 collection

Among Italian historic buildings and creative leaders’ apartments, the new Itinerario V.02 collection was presented for the first time, supporting Miniforms idea of the domestic space: a place where iconic and suggestive elements always surprise.

miniforms boterina armchair

In this occasion, Miniforms is contract-oriented, and focuses its reflections on the individual and his new way of interacting with the community. So, for example, this is how the new Marino sofa was born, Miniforms first modular bench system.

miniforms marino sofa

Let’s discover together other products of the new Miniforms Itinerario V.02 collection:

-Boterina armchair: A cloud with a backrest. Boterina, the smallest member of   the Botera family, is a more compact armchair that will prove agile even in less spacious settings.

miniforms boterina armchair 1

-Briscola table: An ace in your kitchen. Drawing inspiration from the seventies,   Briscola is a noble revisitation of the bistro tables where card games were   played. It has the flavour of the Italian bars of yesteryear, amid coffee cups   and warm informality. The top is supported and framed by an ash-wood tray,   while the base, in black or galvanised metal, roots it firmly in the present.

miniforms briscola table

-Botera sofa and pouf: All about comfort. To relax, nod off or just put your feet   up, all modules share a squishy seat in different lengths, forming a sofa, a pouf  or an armchair.  These eclectic modules are conceived for spaces that change. From the exuberance of the sofa to the casual ease of the pouf, these modules expand into their space in long compositions or contract to fill cosy nooks.

miniforms botera sofa

-Milonga bookshelf: Straight up and down. Milonga is a bookcase with long legs, set with a delicate cadence between spaces. Either as a partition between rooms or, more traditionally, against a wall, this is an indispensable piece for organizing your home library. As well as being technical, Milonga is bold and distinctive, and plays on the colours of the tubes and the layout of the shelves. Indeed, it is the sequence of the shelves that gives the bookcase its sense of movement, echoing the rhythm of the lines printed in the exercise books of our childhood.

miniforms milonga bookshelf

-Soda coffee table: Blown away. Soda was born upside-down, with a puff of air. It weighs 20 kilos, and it is blown, drawn out and shaped by three master glassmakers. The result is a single volume of glass with three large petals forming the stem. In Soda, the glass vibrates: its tough, hammered surface fragments its transparency to give a primitive aesthetic. This is artistic value granted to an industrial product.

miniforms soda coffee table

-Furoshiki pouf: Wrapped with care. Furoshiki is an interplay of patterns and colours. The fabric upholstery covers the padded seat with precise geometries and an unequivocally oriental delicacy. The seams become sartorial details, dividing the item into precise segments. The weave and colours of the fabrics meet and greet one another, then continue in opposite directions.

miniforms furoshiki pouf

-Ozz lamp: Illuminating a story. Ozz is made of light and stone. It shifts from shy domesticity to become central to the home, proving itself a key figure, with its large, look-at-me arc. The design starts in the concrete and end in the lampshade. Between the two, the shaft curves in a dramatic trajectory until the point where the light bites the bait.

Many designers have been involved in the creation of Museum collection: from the famous Rafa Garcìa, to Design Note Studio, from MUT to Estudio Sancal and Sylvain Willenz. Everyone has made a huge contribution to this collection through personality, innovation and foresight.

This year new collection’s concept is a nod to the world of art, showing Sancal’s products as if they were museum pieces.
“Our furniture are not art works, we admire and respect artists too much to say that, but we treat them as if they were,” admits Elena Castaño-López Sancal.

Like most museums, Sancal’s new collection includes painting and sculpture with the aim of making people reflect on controversial issues as the women in art or the relationship between the emptiness and the matter.

Sancal Museo collection is characterized by a clean design with which the designers wanted to escape from the conventional forms of a furniture and explore a new design language.

The sculptural forms are surprising and the graphic silhouette reveals the designers talent for illustration, transcending the function of a furniture to become a decorative object.

Home decor ideas for autumn season: how to give the home a warmer and more comfortable look.

saba furniture collection

With the arrival of autumn we feel the need to make the house a welcoming retreat, a nest in which to take refuge when the days get shorter and protect us from the temperatures that begin to drop.

Let’s discover together the most effective tricks to use to decorate the house in the cold seasons!

Accessories

It takes little to give rooms a more comfortable look, for example by choosing the right textiles for the living room and bedroom, opting for soft and comfortable pillows, rugs, poufs, wool blankets and fabric covers.

The Sofa

If you are planning to change the sofa, we suggest you to choose a very soft and enveloping fabric model with a chaise longue or additional modules that allow the user to lie down and sleep.

The Reading Corner

A reading corner is one of the focal points of the home during the cold seasons. Also in this case a very comfortable armchair with a high and enveloping backrest is a must. Another solution could be a chaise longue that would give a touch of style to the room.

A Cozy Bedroom

As far as the bedroom is concerned, you have to focus on the most important element: the bed. If you have a bed with a wooden frame and headboard, we recommend you to abound with accessories: pillows, blankets, upholstered benches and furnishing accessories that balance the minimalism of the bed.

If you feel like changing your bed, we recommend a model with upholstered frame and headboard; a soft but modern, comfortable and informal one like Flou’s Nathalie bed designed by the great architect Vico Magistretti

Small Living Room Decor

miniforms botera collection

Small living room decor: some creative and smart solutions to furnish a small living room following the latest trends.

miniforms botera sofa

When you have a small living room you should use some tricks to make it cosy and elegant, avoiding the two most common mistakes: making the room “heavy” and making it less functional. So the two keywords for this year will be: order and minimalism!

Order

Order always comes first! In a small space it is necessary that the visual impact is always pleasant and harmonious, so it is important to avoid clutter or a decorative style that includes too many accessories, such as the Boho Chic style, for example.

miniforms boterina armchair

Minimalist style

As far as style is concerned, it is advisable to opt for minimalist and/or modern style. Few pieces of furniture with clean, rounded lines (the new trend for the autumn/winter season), accompanied by some design elements to give a touch of class to the environment.

miniforms soda coffee table

Small comfortable sofa/armchair

The living room, regardless of its size, must be able to function as a space for relaxation and entertainment. So, let’s opt for an extremely comfortable and enveloping sofa and/or armchair with soft lines that will create a pleasant contrast with the minimalist style of the room.

miniforms boterina armchair 1

Pouf

The pouf, versatile and multifunctional, is a useful and almost indispensable element in a small living room. It can be used in various ways, to sit, rest your feet when lying on the sofa or as a coffee table.

How to Decorate a Small Flat

How to decorate a small flat: the keyword is few, but designer pieces of furniture!

alki furniture

Decorating a small flat can be a pleasant and fun experience. You don’t necessarily need an interior designer, just follow a few small steps for a satisfactory result!

saba geo armchair

1) The first rule is not to overfill the space by “smothering” it with furniture and accessories. Few but the right pieces!

saba valentine armchair

2) Be sure about the style you want: modern, shabby chic, vintage, contemporary, boho chic… Try not to mix the various styles together, because you would risk the “bazaar” effect that is not suitable for a small environment.

saba baby geo armchair

3) Study the lighting points well. Light is a fundamental element especially for a small flat that may not have a terrace. Focus first on how to use the available natural light and then on artificial light.

4) As far as colour combinations are concerned, it is better not to exaggerate! It is not recommended to create an environment that is too neutral, but also an environment with too bright colours. The key word here is: Balance.

saba new york suite sofa

5) If you can, we advise you to choose designer furniture and avoid custom-made furniture, as if you were to change home one day you would avoid buying other furniture. Designer furniture is of excellent quality, long-lasting and easily adaptable to any space.

Optimizing the Domestic Spaces

lema wardrobe 6

Optimizing the domestic spaces by “merging” the living room and the bedroom.

lema wardrobe 2

In modern societies there is an increase in singles and single families. The consequence is only one: the boom of all-in-one rooms.

lema wardrobe 1

According to the latest furnishing trends, interior designers focus on the desire to combine in a single area the bedroom and the living room, or alternatively the kitchen with the living room area.

lema wardrobe 3

The goal is always the same: to optimize spaces and make them more functional, adapting to the needs of an evolving real estate market characterized by the systematic increase of singles and small families looking for one and two-room apartments.

lema wardrobe 4

Hybrid spaces are thus born

Making the most of every single square meter becomes the dominant imperative for the so-called “unique” rooms, i.e. open space in which the spaces of the living area merge with those of the bedroom.

lema wardrobe 6

The must-have is the sofa bed element, used to rest during the night but also as an extra bed to accommodate relatives or friends. The new way of living the domestic spaces, which have become more and more fluid, makes the sleeping area become, little by little, the new living room where you spend on average about 70 minutes a day watching television, surfing the web or reading a book.

lema wardrobe 7

The hybrid spaces between bedroom and living room are also characterized by the presence of a modular wall. The chairs, then, from chairs for the living room, in many cases are also transformed into bedside tables, to be placed next to the bed.

lema wardrobe 5

Hybrid furniture

In open space environments it is advisable to choose hybrid furniture, suitable for both the living area and the sleeping area; for example a small table that can be used as a base for remote control or cell phone, who decorates it with furnishings and flowers who simply leave it empty.

Two other versatile and indispensable elements are the armchair that can also be used for lunch and one or more lamps. The armchair must be chosen following the subjective parameters of comfort and functionality.

The light element then has a key role! From the adjustable floor lamp to a refined suspension solution, the lighting must provide perfect reading light but also create a relaxing atmosphere.
