Milan Design City Guide | Salone del Mobile 2022
With a sustainability-focused edition that starts today until 12 June in Rho Fiera Milano, the Salone Del Mobile Milano is one of the biggest interior design events running for over 60 years!
Began in 1961, this Milan Furniture Fair is a platform with over 2,000 exhibitors participating and showcasing solutions for contemporary living that integrate design and technology.
Milan Design City Guide 2022
Salone del Mobile attracts thousands of professional visitors each year with just under 70% of them coming from other countries making it the unmissable sector-wide appointment. There are also accompanying activities, which are typically produced by top worldwide artists and designers, because the Salone is not only about commerce but also about culture.
This is the basis of what you can expect from Salone Del Mobile 2022 but Milan has a lot more to offer. You can enjoy these events, but you should also enjoy the city and that’s why we want you to present a complete Milan City Guide free for your enjoyment!
What to Visit
To celebrate Tom Dixon’s 20th anniversary, the British design brand will host ‘TWENTY’, an unprecedented exhibition in Milan to coincide with Salone.
From the 7th – 12th June, new and iconic collections will be shown for the first time in not just one but two locations: Palazzo Serbelloni and The Manzoni, the brand’s hub in Milan.
While Palazzo Serbelloni will host the TWENTY exhibitions, The Manzoni (the brand’s hub in Milan since 2019) will be used as a ‘business center’ by the Tom Dixon International Sales Teams. The whole range of Tom Dixon’s best-sellers will be on display for new and existing customers to see.

TWENTY, an exhibition celebrating 20 years of design and innovation will be hosted at Palazzo Serbelloni, a neoclassical palace where Sotheby’s – the world’s largest marketplace for art and luxury – has its Milan galleries and offices. The event will focus on innovation and materiality with 20 unseen creations on display.
Visitors will be invited to explore a thoughtfully curated selection of designs: some inspired by Tom Dixon’s most recognized collections such as MIRROR BALL, MELT, and FAT, some upgraded, and some in embryonic experiment-mode, providing a reflective yet future-thinking overview of Tom’s prolific portfolio and journey to becoming one of Britain’s most celebrated designers.
