Salone Satellite Milan 2017

Salone Satellite is not to be missed when visiting Salone di Mobile. Since 1998 it is a platform for young designers, instantly becoming the unrivaled place for interface with manufacturers and talent scouts.

Many of the models presented in the previous 19 editions have gone into production, and many of the thousands of designers who have taken part over the years, along with nearly 300 design schools worldwide, are now the leading names in the international design scene.

We were especially impressed with a series of lamps created by Rachel Griffin of Earnest Studio. Her concept POST is based on a single, independent, LED light source. This source can be attached (alone or in multiples) to one of four cylindrical steel armatures—designed for the table, floor, ceiling, and wall—using a magnetic connection that allows for the use of an unlimited number of sources, in a wide range of positions and orientations.
