Salone del Mobile: Milan is the design capital of the world

April 08th to 13th 2014 saw this year’s international furniture fair, the Salone del Mobile including segments for kitchen and bathroom. We had a look around to discover creations in natural stone and will be showing examples in this and coming issues.

Here are a few statistics revolving around the fair: there were 357.212 visitors (+ 13% compared to the previous fair last year) and 2387exhibitors. The exhibit surface was brute 340.000 m² and net 204.800 m².
Parallel to the fair was held the Fuori Salone with the Zona Tortona near the Porta Genova train station and at the Zona Ventura Lambrate near the Porta Lambrate railway station. Originally these were romping grounds for creative young designers. Today they are interesting events in an informal atmosphere.
