Having decided we can manufacture the designs that Kristian has produced, we look around for a platform to launch our products to the world. The Salone del Milano https://www.salonemilano.it – known as Milan Design Week is one of the world’s most important furniture design shows …… and it takes place in early April each year, perfect timing for us!
Initially we learn that the show is full and there is no space available…… but then we are asked to submit our designs to the SaloneSatellite team – an event run alongside the main exhibition which focuses on the most promising young designers – a place for interface with manufacturers and talent scouts – sounds ideal! We submit our drawings and it takes minutes for the organisers to reply, inviting us to take a stand and display our prototypes! We’re in!
We are then asked to submit one product for the SaloneSatellite Awards – the AeroBench is guaranteed to be completed in time for the judging so that’s the product we submit. Design Week Milan and the 4th April become our focus. We are majorly delighted to be one of the 10,000 designers who have taken part in this young talent exhibition over its 19 years …. Many of our predecessors are now big names on the design scene!
