This morning, we had the honor of attending the Salone del Mobile Milano press conference at Intesa Sanpaolo in NYC. Just two weeks into the start of the year, it was the perfect moment to announce their new concepts and the future of workplace design.
Salone’s new projects and installations are moving away from the old tradition of a hierarchal formal setting within the workplace. Instead, they plan to embrace the office as a place that fosters sharing, collaborating, creating and wellbeing. With this in mind, a visionary project has been announced entitled, A Joyful Sense at Work which aims to breathe new life into contemporary office designs that encompass individuals’ needs, emotions and experiences.
Collaborating on this project are four internationally acclaimed architects, including US-based Primo Orpilla, that will boost energy levels and drive new integrative design concepts. Orpilla was on hand to discuss the concept and his visions for the evolution of the workspace. This installation is being created specifically for the biennial Workplace 3.0 show curated by the architect Christiana Cutrona.
With all that is evolving within workplace design, definitely be on the lookout for Salone del Mobile Milano this season. The show will take place in Milan from April 4-9.
