Last Thursday, Salone del Mobile Milano, the famed annual trade fair dedicated to interior design, held a press conference in New York announcing its planned exhibitions and events for this year’s 54th edition from April 14th to April 19th 2015 during Milan’s design week.

The fair played host to over 400,000 people last year and more are expected this time around with some of the best interior designers, curators and architects participating, amongst them Michele De Lucchi, Carolina Nisivoccia Studio di Architettura, interior design ravaiolisilenzistudio, Candida Zanelli Studio and Cameranesi Pompili

The Salone will host “IN ITALY” a multimedia installation, which explores the awareness that every object produced in Italy stems from a historic artistic tradition, family entrepreneurship, industrial know-how and creativity of design. The film installation, which will also be distributed globally as an interactive app, will show five different apartments around Italy done in five different design styles.

The fair will also present the largest exhibit devoted to Leonardo Da Vinci ever devised in Italy. The exhibit, held on April 15, will include a significant group of pictorial masterpieces by Leonardo, some of his original codices and over one hundred autograph drawings as well as a considerable number of manuscripts, sculptures, codices, incunabula and 16th-century treatises from the world’s greatest museums, libraries and private collections. It will also include some of Da Vinci’s most famous artworks on loan including La Belle Ferronière, The Annunciation and John the Baptist.

The fair will also present the 18th edition of SalonSatellite an event dedicated to 700 emerging designers under the age of 35. This year’s Salone del Mobile is being helmed by new president Roberto Snaidero.
