Born from Salone del Mobile.Milano in 1998, SaloneSatellite was the first event to focus on young designers, instantly becoming the unrivalled place for interface with manufacturers, talent scouts and the most promising young designers, and is again running concurrently with the Saloni WorldWide Moscow since their creation in 2005.
The SaloneSatellite WorldWide Moscow - the platform for emerging designers under 35 from Russia and the post-Soviet countries - is an unmissable occasion for direct contact with the leading furniture sector companies, and an opportunity for personal growth for its young participants, given the chance of interface with other designers and the critical judgement of experts within the sector.
The young designers and graduates-to-be are selected from among the leading design schools in Russia and the post-Soviet countries. They will showcase a wide variety of projects, ranging from eminently classic design to the latest trends, or referencing their own cultural traditions. Most of all they will demonstrate an increasingly committed approach to design.
A Jury composed of sectoral professionals will award the three best products and the top three winners will be invited to the SaloneSatellite, held under the umbrella of the Salone del Mobile.Milano, in April.
The winners of the 12th edition have be chosen, as always, by an International Jury composed of sectoral professionals: Barbara Abele, Associate Professor Art Academy of Latvia; Kyrill Cheburashkin, Dean of Furniture Design Department, Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts and Industry; Luciano Colombo, Owner/Sole Director, Annibale Colombo; Duilio Forte, architect; Francesca Granchi, Sigma L2; Olga Kosyreva, Design Editor, Vogue Russia; Paola Magro, Account Manager, Salone del Mobile.Milano; Ekaterina Peganova, Editor-in-Chief, Interni Russia; Marco Sabetta, General Manager, Salone del Mobile.Milano; Alberto Vignatelli, Fendi/Club House and Marva Griffin, Founder and Curator SaloneSatellite.
