In a phase where natural disasters compete against uncompromising financial news, the strategic movement of Italian design & manufacturing industry, to artfully expand its international trade fairs to foreign territories- with no reductions to quality and relevance- is propably the dominant business move on a European level the post-2008 years. The ''Moscow branch" of Salone del Mobile, took place again this October 2016, sharpening the edges of the global production, by introducing the best of Italy (: which tends to remain the best of the world, despite the economic crisis) and promoting new, exciting realities and groundbreaking ideas. The insatiable, creative power of the organizers, brought up a network of producers, designers, companies, specialists etc., including the vast territory of the ex-Soviet world: a powerful source of talented "Russian-and-beyond" avant-garde no2. History is repeated, here are some important aspects from this year's manifestations:
1. The twelfth edition of the SaloneSatellite WorldWide Moscow marked the exhibition, in which 44 young designers from Russia and the former Soviet Republics were involved. The award winners will be invited to the SaloneSatellite in Milan, which will be held under the umbrella of the Salone del Mobile.Milano from 4th to 9th April 2017.
2. The three Master Classes, providing an opportunity for reflection and discussion on design-related issues, featured three of the architects from the 11 architectural practices that took part in the great ROOMS. Novel Living Concepts exhibition organised by the Salone del Mobile.Milano as part of the XXI International Triennale Exhibition in Milan: Duilio Forte, Claudio Lazzarini and Carl Pickering, and Francesco Librizzi.
3. The third edition of MADE expo WorldWide was onboard , the event devoted to interior architecture, involving a number of leading Italian door and surface sector companies.
4. As complementary, Salone del Mobile.Milano Trend Lab announced an event of major importance in the Russian capital, commenting on the concept of Return To Nature. In 2019 a real living forest will appear in the centre of Moscow just a few steps from the Red Square. Zaryadye Park – designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, creators of the acclaimed High Line park in New York – comes under the heading of what is known as Wild Urbanism, "an urban design trend that extends nature and the countryside into the urban landscape, in which natural elements and crops coexist and interact with the built environment, creating a new genre of public space".
