The announcement of the date comes after long and detailed reflections that involved the leaders of the Salone del Mobile and Fiera Milano, where the annual event is held – normally in the spring.

The exhibition is not being held in 2020 due to the pandemic. The 60th edition of the Salone will now be held from September 5 to 10, 2021.

“Being able to create the Salone next year,” says the president of the Salone del Mobile, Claudio Luti, “is an absolute priority for all of us who live by design.”

“Moving the date of the Salone del Mobile is not a simple scheduling exercise, but must take into account the many days required to set up and dismantle the various pavilions and this, in turn, must coincide with the needs of many other events that use the spaces of Fiera Milano.

“We are confident that the postponement to September may leave the right time to overcome the still acute phase of the pandemic and truly represent a real restart on a global level.

“After such a long time of physical and social distancing in every area, we would like to be able to think about the meeting room and real confrontation, and be able to get excited again together with a city animated by new intentions.”
