The latest design trends from Austria at the Milan Furniture Fair
With around 300,000 visitors, Salone Internazionale del Mobile is one of the world’s most important furnishings fairs. Austria is represented for the fifth year in Milan with its own design showcase; this year’s motto is CONFESSION OF DESIGN .
A total of 60 furniture and product designers and well-established companies will be presenting the latest design trends from Austria from 8th to 13th April 2014. The organisers have once again chosen an unusual venue in the centre of Milan, with an 18th century church, Rotonda della Besana, playing host this year.
The concept for the exhibition originated from the Vienna studio Vasku&Klug . The motto “CONFESSION OF DESIGN” strives to reflect the goal of “Putting the New centre stage and formulating an Austrian confession of design through the relationship between the New and Tradition”.
38,500 companies are involved in Austria’s creative industries and they generate EUR 18.2 bn per year. More than a third of these companies export their products and services.
