The Euroluce lighting exhibition returns to the Milanese fair, with, among other highlights, a new brand called Flos with Sarfatti – created by the Italian giant in collaboration with Danish brand Astep, reissuing important works by master Gino Sarfatti. The fair also sees Salone Satellite’s 20th edition, presenting a typically impressive roster of 650 designers, including Wallpaper* Young Designer of the Year, Gustavo Martini.
