The Makers Show: craftspeople, self-producers and makers on show at “supersalone”
“supersalone” – the special Salone del Mobile.Milano event curated by Stefano Boeri, welcomes in independent makers who create a story, a message and emotions by shaping materials in original ways.
The Makers Show is a “supersalone” selection of work by designer-makers from all over the world. Featuring workshops, studios, laboratories and start-ups that bring together design and experimentation, new production techniques and materials research in order to produce their own projects. Their contribution to the overall exhibition will make the diversity of the world of creative living even more exhaustive. The curators have asked them to showcase one single project each, with a view to building up a collective picture of the state of the art of independent design and the direction it’s taking.
The Makers Show is an integral part of the “supersalone” palimpsest, organised by the Salone del Mobile.Milano from 5th to 10th September 2021 at the Rho-Fieramilano fairgrounds. Curated by the architect Stefano Boeri and a team of international designers, architects and curators – Andrea Caputo, Maria Cristina Didero, Anniina Koivu, Lukas Wegwerth and Marco Ferrari and Elisa Pasqual of Studio Folder – “supersalone” will be a celebration of design with a completely new format for exhibiting the companies’ products. It will be teamed with a huge public and cultural programme, open not just to the furnishing industry but also to the general public.
