Following the successful first edition that attracted over 8,000 professional visitors (30%of whom from overseas), we are looking forward to the return of space&interiors (April 4-8, 2017). Taking place concurrently with Milan Design Week, space&interiors is entirely focused on architectural finishes and is the only event linked with the Salone del Mobile.Milano.
The Mall Porta Nuova, in the heart of Milan’s Brera Design District, is the venue of this visually stunning showcase for top-notch doors, handles, paint and decorating supplies, windows, wall coverings, finishes and interior architecture.
The experience of attending space&interiors is unique. Upon entering the display space, visitors will experience the entire show floor as a narrative that winds its way through different areas. A striking esplanade takes the visitor through three different yet seamlessly integrated areas: a purely commercial trade show with products on display in stands set up in accordance with a distinctive exhibition design look, a dynamic yet welcoming space to accommodate private business meetings, and a more immersive area housing a dynamic installation disclosing the characteristics and qualities of individual products.
This year, the ‘Absolute Lightness’ exhibit, created by Migliore+Servetto Architects will show how different manufacturers embed the concept of weightlessness into their products and solutions. Lightness has always been the cornerstone of architecture, insofar as it is a wellspring for sustainability, interactions with other materials, and light itself…….
The exhibit is driven by a narrative on three separate levels. One occupying the wide central promenade, where long white tables invite visitors to explore contents and products also via an interactive App designed specifically for this rare journey of discovery.
Behind reflective surfaces expanding the space and giving rise to entirely new dimensions, an intermediate level offers a more visual narrative with an array of quotes, specific pictures of products, and illustrations.
Furthermore, an exhibit entitled “La Luce del Marmo”, promoted by IMM, will focus on design as it ties in with the three themes running through the event: Carrara marble, lightness and light, as a means of imparting value to matter and form.
This year’s edition will feature some of the top names in architectural finishes today including: 2TEC2, Abet Laminati Spa, Arte, Barusse - Doors Made in Italy, Bianchi Lecco Srl, Jansen, Italia for Contract, Effebiquattro Milano, Lu-Bek Srl, Oikos Architetture D’Ingresso, Okey Srl, Oli Srl, Omexco, Renolit, Salice Paolo Srl, Vighi Security Doors Spa, Legnoform Srl and Fewood.
