Milan-Moscow: I Saloni World Wide
Crocus Expo Pavilion 2, in Moscow, Russia, 16 - 19 October
This fair serves as a benchmark for Russia and the countries in its geopolitical basin. A huge range of goods – from furnishings to upholsteries, lighting appliances, kitchens, office furniture, accessories, bathroom furnishings, textiles, coverings, components, and accessories – are displayed in the Design/Modern sectors, separate from the Classic section. The exhibition also acts as a launchpad for young designers from Russia and the former Soviet Republics. Master Classes are held on the first three days of the fair, with the three architects selected for the 2013 edition being Giuseppe della Giusta, Ferruccio Laviani, and Patricia Urquiola, who are set to discuss retail, design, and architecture with design journalist and critic, Olga Kosyreva.
