Salone Del Mobile 2022 News and Trends – There’s a buzz in the air – crowds are literally buzzing to see the design in person again, possibly for the first time in years.
LUXXU started the first day of Salone del Mobile 2022 with a strong presence and even stronger masterpieces all around. Bringing a New Era Set In Stone, LUXXU gives highlight to a more soft-toned and neutral palette, aiming to bring out the best of craftsmanship and show you how easily you can incorporate any of the pieces to all kinds of projects, be it residential, commercial, or even hospitality!
The highlight for the first day was definitely the Gladia Armchair, as soon as you step inside the booth you’re mesmerized by its powerful inspiration. Through timeless and distinctive lines, the Gladia Armchair was designed to bring ultimate comfort to any project, thanks to a black lacquered, polished brass, gray synthetic leather, and gray velvet upholstery solution that demonstrates the power of modern design.

Prada Reveals – Prada Frames
With a three-day seminar running concurrently with Salone del Mobile 2022, Prada is emphasizing the inherent contrast between the natural and design worlds. The series of lectures and events, curated by the research and design studio Formafantasma, aims to provide a critical approach to design by analyzing how it directly impacts the environment, in order to illuminate existing ecological practices and chart the course for design’s future relationship with nature. The symposium’s visual manifestation is a forest created with a Lidor scan, a process used to digitally scan original copies as well as select trees when foresting.
