In its 23rd year, 600 young designers will participate in this year’s SaloneSatellite, with a theme of DESIGNING FOR OUR FUTURE SELVES. This year will invite designers to reflect on inclusive design that promotes autonomy, comfort, user-friendliness, interaction, and safety for all.

With a diverse perspective and a fluid, multi-sectoral format, S.Project is set to reflect the latest market & societal demands. Workplace 3.0 will also explore the latest market demands with designs that feature enhanced customization and impressive sustainability features.
The Magic Box
A testament to the 10 integral values of Salone set out in the Manifesto, the Magic Box is a monumental audio-visual installation that will be staged at Palazzo Reale’s Sala delle Cariatidi from April 21 – May 3. Collaborating with 10 leading Italian filmmakers, each filmmaker has directed a thought-provoking short film that represents one of the 10 values from the Manifesto.
A “visionary dictionary of Italian creativity”, guests will enter a 20 foot high “camera obscura” that morphs from an elegant art gallery into an immersive cinema. Aiming to awaken a sense of wonder, the Magic Box celebrates Milan through the language of film.
Filmmakers include: Francesca Archibugi, Pappi Corsicato, Stefano Mordini, Wilma Labate, Bruno Bozzetto, Luca Lucini, Claudio Giovannesi, Gianni Canova, Donato Carrisi and Daniele Ciprì.
