Salone del Mobile 2017

It was a great experience attending the “Salone del Mobile 2017” in Milan, a prestigious Exhibition for Designers worldwide showcasing their innovative ideas.
The unrivaled show of quality and innovation in design is now over. It hosted 343.602 attendees in 6 days from 165 countries. More than 2,000 exhibitors overall, 34% of them from other countries, were split between the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the International Furnishing Accessories Exhibition, Euroluce, Workplace3.0 and SaloneSatellite. 

The exhibition showcased the ultimate furnishing solutions for banks, insurance and post offices, public spaces; acoustic products, internal partitions and coverings, office furnishing accessories, audio-visual technologies and technical and security systems. 

Design has already deeply intertwined with technology, and designers always look for new ways of creating and adapting to rapid changes in the latest market demands. Many of them choose Arduino as their tool. It is perfect for implementation in innovative and interactive design projects and allows to achieve an amazing mixture of creativity and technology, especially for people without any technical knowledge. 

Arduino’s booth was located in the Workspace 3.0, next to “Salone Satellite”, where many freelance designers were showcasing their work, and luckily, we had a chance to introduce them to the “Arduino world”.










It was an honor to showcase a preview of the “Bridge” project in out booth. It was prepared by Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, in the course taught by Riccardo Blumer, and carried out from the students Stephen Okoh, Guglielmo Spada and Marco Vallario. This installation generates various linear paths in scale 1:3  and represents the merger between architecture and human interaction, using an Arduino board, that moves motors and elastic ropes through different sensors. We will certainly write more about this project soon. Stay tuned!   






At the booth, visitors were welcomed to play our variation of the classic “Spot the Differences” game. They were given seemingly similar pictures of Arduino UNO Wi-Fi, and it’s their job to spot the tiny differences between the picture and the actual board.
