International furniture fair Salone del Mobile will take place from September, rather than its traditional calender date in April.
The 60th edition of the show will include all products, for the first time, including the kitchen show Eurocucina, appliance fair FTK, the International Bath Fair and lighting event Euroluce.
President of the Salone del Mobile, Claudio Luti commented: “Being able to hold the
Salone next year is an absolute priority for all those of us whose lives revolve around design.
“We have tried very hard over the last few weeks not to make proclamations or

calendar, it also has to consider the many days needed to set up and dismantle the various

“Now that we have achieved the best possible all-round solution, thanks to
the collaboration of Fiera Milano, we are in a position to confirm the new date.”
“We also believe that moving the fair to September will leave enough time for the ongoing
acute phase of the pandemic to subside and that this will provide a real chance to kickstart
design at global level.”
He added: “We all need the Salone in Milan. Over the last few months, clients
and designers from all over the world, and the press that follows us at international level,
have been asking us constantly to confirm the dates for this edition.
“We’ll be there, and we’ll be even more attractive and more motivated, just as motivated as the companies working to design and manufacture the best possible products.”
Claudio Luti concluded:”After such a lengthy period of physical and social distancing in every sphere, we would like to be able to see the Salone asan opportunity for actual meeting and discussion, and a chance for us all to share our excitement with a city buzzing with new ideas.”
Salone del Mobile, which takes place annually, was originally postponed in 2020 to June, following the Coronavirus outbreak in Italy, before being suspended for the year.
