Salone del Mobile 2015: Atelier Clerici

With many critics arguing Salone del Mobile has become a marketing fair and denouncing its lack of criticality and connection to developments in design outside of the realm of furniture, it is refreshing to see that Milan can still offer a space for debate and dialogue. For the second year in a row, the most radical platform for experimentation takes shape at Atelier Clerici, an independent exhibition and event held in a historical palazzo in Milan, palazzo Clerici. Organized by Joseph Grima’s Space Caviar in collaboration with Z33, Atelier Clerici offers the chance to some of the most leading contemporary design institutions to “define and represent themselves as agents in the field of design”, thus offering a new vision for Salone itself while also engaging with developments in design in a way that is far removed from simply displaying novel projects. Therefore, this year’s exhibitors include some of the most groundbreaking and thought-provoking individuals and organisations, from Design Academy Eindhoven and Domus Academy, to Hella Jongerius and last year’s participants Minale-Maeda.

Visit Atelier Clerici at Via Clerici 5, until April 19th 2015 from 10 AM to 8 PM.
