From 18 to 23 April, at Fiera Milano Rho, the 61th Salone del Mobile Milano will take place, which will bring the “beautiful” and “well done” back to a stage of international importance.

The news of the 2023 edition
In recent difficult and complex years, reflections, research and questions on the future of trade fairs have been on the agenda. Reflections that led to a revision of the exhibition format of the 61st Salone del Mobile Milano with the aim of being able to continue to generate value for the entire design community.
Hence the three novelties of this edition, starting from the single exhibition level, with the exhibitors of the upper pavilions (8-12, 16-20) relocated to the lower ones to simplify, improve and enhance the fruition and experience of visit.
Hence the new layout of Euroluce, which, from a centric stand, will bring man and the use of the event back to the centre. And this thanks to a hyper-usable and better connected circular route.
Finally, the cultural component will be integrated into the spaces of the biennale of light through interdisciplinary and experiential contents, which will range from architecture to art with exhibitions, talks, workshops, site-specific installations.
“One of the characteristics of the 61st Salone del Mobile Milan https://www.salonemilano.it/it is its ability to evolve to respond to the most urgent contemporary challenges. We did it in 2021 by inventing Supersalone, the first global event after the very tough months of the pandemic, with the edition of last June, when we returned to the traditional format by accepting the challenge of sustainability, and we continue to do so with the 2023 edition. After three years, it was unthinkable to return to April, our traditional position on the calendar, as if nothing had happened”, as the president Maria Porro underlined during the press presentation.
