Salone del Mobile, the International Furniture Fair, returns to Milano for the 61st edition, in its usual April dates.


Salone del Mobile is the showcase of Milanese and Italian excellence in international furniture design. It’s also one of the most awaited and entertaining moments in the life of the city. The Salone is back in a completely renewed guise, while keeping the connection to its roots: design and industry.


This year’s edition coincides with biennial appointment with Euroluce, which means a special attention dedicated to lighting design, accompanied by experiences and events devoted to lamps, light and lightings.


The exhibition space has been redesigned, so that the trade fair will take place on a single floor, thanks to an innovative layout that reproduces the experience of walking through an Italian historic city center, an organic example of connectedness and community, accompanying the visitor among the exhibitors’ stands, organized and highlighted according to their targets.


Salone del Mobile 2023 brings together 1,962 exhibitors, 27 design schools, and over 550 young talents. The Salone contains worlds − Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition, Workplace3.0, S.Project, Euroluce, SaloneSatellite - each with their own specificities and opportunities for in-depth discussion and networking.


Great attention to environmental sustainability and social and economic responsibility is present in all phases of the event, including the modular, reusable and renewable materials (wood and paper) used for stands and installations.

The Biennial of Lighting, in pavilions 9-11 and 13-15

The 31st edition of the biennial dedicated to light will take place in an experiential and polycentric exhibition itinerary, organized around 4 pavilions, with 30,250 square meters of exhibition space and 321 exhibitors (of which about 45% from abroad).

The international marketplace of reference in the world of lighting is organized in 4 thematic areas: sustainability and energy efficiency, digitalization, Human Centric Light, design.

At the center of this is "Aurore", a large arena which is a luminous, immersive, and enlightening installation space, and a place that can be used by the public for rest, meditation and reflection.

When in use, it will host a cycle of thematic conferences.


Exhibitions, installations and events

Closely connected with the theme of light and design, there is a rich program of exhibitions, talks and installations aims to integrate the Salone del Mobile with art, architecture and photography.

The City of Lights” will be the thematic leitmotif of the 2023 Euroluce biennial.

Its center will be "Aurore", a large arena that will host talks and workshops, where visitors can experience an immersive lighting installation.

A place set up with comfortable seating areas, where visitors can find moments of relaxation and reflection.




Hélène Binet, one of the most significant authors in contemporary photography, exhibits her work investigating the relationship between natural light and architecture.


Martina Sanzarello will oversee the curation and setting up of the exhibition, which pays homage to the classic shape of the incandescent light bulb.


Curated by Matteo Pirola, there is a roundup of "artificial stars" made by the From Outer Space studio.


Michele Calzavara will instead curate a review of images from interior design where the protagonist is artificial light. Berfu Bengisu Goren has conceived the setting as a hybrid between two functions: the actual exhibition and a space devoted to workshops by exhibiting companies, professional meetings and technical demonstrations.


Finally, Maurizio Nannucci, one of the most powerful interpreters of artificial light in contemporary art, has created a large installation for the site: a long luminous neon sign saying “You can image the opposite” which, ideally, urges viewers to reverse roles and alter received ideas.

Another veritable cultural lighthouse will be the exhibit’s bookshop, specializing in design, art, illustration and fiction titles which, in various forms, explore the theme of light.


The space will be managed by Corraini Editori, while the project is by Formafantasma studio, who have imagined it as an intimate place where you can purchase books but also peruse them.


In the pavilions of Euroluce there will also be a food bistro and a fine dining restaurant, both designed by Piero Lissoni.
