best of Salone Satellite 2008

Working as a stylist for the greek magazine MAISON & DECORATION, I had the opportunity to visit Milan during the Salone del Mobile exhibition. For this reason, I would like to thank my Milan leader..Makis Tsakpinoglou (editor in chief of the greek magazine MAISON & DECORATION) for the “must see” tips of the design week and for his “always welcome” design lessons. I would also like to thank Agapi Tsakpinoglou (publishing director of the greek magazine MAISON & DECORATION), for her awesome design-gift.. I’m more than thankful for their support..

Milan’s Salone del Mobile ranks as the world’s biggest industrial design event with the city taken over by exhibitions, events and parties and I’m going to publish all the honorable mentions of my experience in the city..the following days!

Part of the Salone del Mobile was Salone Satellite , which was held in a space designed specifically for the occasion within the Milan Fairgrounds in Rho and many young talented designers were gearing up for the annual celebration of creativity.

The following selections are some of my favourites from Salone Satellite 2008. A design starter of fresh ideas and conceptual projects.
