New materials. New design

In partnership with SaloneSatellite/Salone del Mobile.Milano, la Rinascente in Milan is putting on sale the creations by eight young talents promoted by the salonesatellite 2016.

Materials that check out new vocations, shapes that evoke extraordinary cultures and surprising artefacts. Once again this year, the young designers who stood out at the Salone Satellite 2016, can present and sell their creations in a prestigious top store window, the Design Supermarket of la Rinascente.

Top: Sara Ricciardi has developed a series of weights that should be experienced taking into account their material. Having all the same shape, their weight depends entirely on their composition. Aluminium, copper, brass, wood, plastic, plexiglass and marble. Which one will be the heaviest? An invitation to try, discover and explore different materials and their consistency.

A project that for the fourth consecutive year sees partnership between La Rinascente, which has always give visibility to young talents, and SaloneSatellite/Salone del Mobile.Milano, the institution that for almost twenty years has brought to the Salone del Mobile the most promising designers under 35 years of age from all over the world.
