Introduced as a showcase for innovative products from Italy’s furniture industry, the Salone del Mobile has evolved over a period of nearly 55 years into a global marketplace, a breeding ground for young talent, a platform for branding and – as we all know – a hotbed of discussion on and around design. But how new is the design that’s presented in Milan?
