Highlights of Salone del Mobile 2022

Salone del Mobile 2002 is on! The city of Milan comes alive once again for the 60th edition of Salone del Mobile Milano. The Salone del Mobile is a celebration of design, culture color and style.

EasyMilano was there and here we share some of favorites.

Design in the city

Tadashi Kawamata

The imaginative mind of the artist Kawamata has transformed the buildings of Milan into urban installations. The exhibition “Nests”, curated by Antonella Soldaini, is on display throughout Milan until July 23rd displaying the works of the Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata.

Various locations.

Jean Mirò

Not part of the Salone del Mobile show as it is a permanent feature of our city, but Mirò always brings a new dimension of style. The work is called Mère Ubu (Mother Ubu), made of bronze and dates to 1975. It was donated by the artist to the city of Milan in 1976. It represents a mysterious and zoomorphic figure, with the face of a bird, a hollow belly and two powerful legs.

The statue is located in front of the Palazzo del Senato and is on permanent display.

Address: Via Senato, 10, 20121 Milano MI

International Designers

Le Broom

Kohler’s FuoriSalone exhibition features the world premiere of a large-scale immersive art experience, entitled “Divided Layers,” an installation that builds upon the duo’s release of Rock.01 – a 3D printed sink Daniel Arsham designed in collaboration with Kohler on display in the courtyard of Palazzo del Senato. (See featured image, left.)

Stacks of panels form a tunnel that can be walked through in the immersive installation. Arsham created Divided Layers in order to show the internal workings of the unique Kohler process. The 3d tunnel reveals the subtractive process by removing portions to allow the visitor to walk through the volume.

The opening of the cavernous structure is mirrored and reflected by a pond within the installation allowing visitors to think about how volumes interact with each other and accept that space can be reshaped.

Kohler Ceramic Sink, Rock.01, made with their unique 3d printing process – After 7.5 hours of print time, a clear glaze is applied and then the price is kiln fired for hardness. The result is an elegant, functional piece for any home.

Address: Via Senato, 10, 20121 Milano MI
