What makes Milan Design Week the world’s most influential design event?

To begin with, two events form the core of Milan Design Week. Salone del Mobile – the Milan Furniture Fair, and Fuorisalone – a set of events and exhibitions spread across the city’s design districts. While the former attracts 300,000 of the world’s finest minds in design, architecture, interiors, and furniture converge, the latter also draws a lot of designers, architects, students, and professionals from all over the world.

Where crucial global trends are born

Since 1961, Salone del Mobile has always been a point of reference for the entire design community. A place of bustling creativity and healthy dialogue, this is where crucial global trends in the world of interior design and furniture are born. Trends that provide direction to the rest of the world, including China, as the world’s biggest furniture makers look upon the event as the main testing ground for their new ideas, especially in the context of the global market. Thereby impacting design, production, and distribution solutions worldwide.

How does it impact India?

It is safe to say that when it comes to interiors and furniture – colors, styles, innovations, materials – all find first life in Milan. This then influences a large-scale shift in the production of designs, textures, and finishes which impacts the industry. Popular concepts get picked up by magazines, which in turn lead to the change in the eye of both the interior designer and consumer. Thereby creating shifts in the economics and availability of products, even in India. Staying on top of the trend, therefore, is to be able to predict what will become available.

A commitment toward originality and authenticity

Even the world’s ultimate design event faces a rather growing challenge, as observed in the past decade. Much of the original furniture designs exhibited at Milan Design Week, reflecting the painstaking process and cost of development, research, and design innovation, are virtually stolen and aped (unsuccessfully) by various manufacturers all over the world.

A presence at the event is a reaffirmation of Simply Sofas’ commitment to originality and authenticity. The best furniture designs on show at Salone del Mobile are what eventually get shipped to Simply Sofas showrooms and select architectural projects in India.
