9-14 April
Via Savona 35,
Zona Tortona

The last four years, Norway’s annual Salone exhibition has established a reputation as one of the highlight events of Milan Design Week, proudly championing the country’s collaborative design ethic and production infrastructure to an international audience of thousands.

Curators Kråkvik&D’Orazio explore the social, environmental and economic dimensions of circular design – in both designer and maker selection and exhibition design.
“The exhibited objects highlight how the boundaries between craft and design aren’t as clear as before. Designers no longer design solely for mass production. Why should we design a new
thing? It’s about the principle. In addition to  aesthetics, the object must have a value in terms of materiality or durability. The items we have chosen must give something in return – through longevity, decomposability or the way in which they are produced,” the stylist duo explains.

Exhibition by:  Doga, Klubben and Norwegian Crafts
