Reserved for trade members every day from morning to afternoon, the Salone is open to the public on Saturday and Sunday with an entrance ticket.

After the launch of the xLux sector during Salone del Mobile.Milano 2016, the 2017 edition features a new format dividing the creations on display into different clusters: Classico: tradizione nel Futuro, featuring a linear display of classical furniture along a central walkway and Before Design: Classico, featuring the display of a room and a theatre from last year’s Salone del Mobile.Milano, together with a short movie by awarded movie director Matteo Garrone.
Moreover, following a well-established format, the Design Week extravaganza is also enhanced by a unique programme of exhibitions, special openings, DJ sets, cocktail parties as well as site-specific installations and projects that make up the Fuorisalone event.
