Atelier Swarovski Home
 
Swarovski is seizing the opportunity to launch its new luxury home accessories brand, Atelier Swarovski Home. From the 12th to the 17th visitors will be able to discover a curated exhibition featuring centerpieces and home accessories designed by some of the most exciting names in the industry, including the late Zaha Hadid. Nadja Swarovski commented on the launch saying: “Atelier Swarovski Home is an exciting new brand that will offer the ultimate in luxury crystal home décor with an ultra-modern design aesthetic.” 

 

Dolce & Gabbana x SMEG
Two Italian labels have joined forces to celebrate their passion for all things “Made in Italy”. With this collaboration Smeg’s FAB28 model is getting a complete makeover: fashion label Dolce & Gabbana has commissioned Sicilian artists such as Salvatore Sapienza to decorate 100 fridges. Once finished, each fridge will have taken around 240 hours to complete and will retail at the price of $34000. The fridges will be unveiled at the Salone del Mobile.

Marni Ballhaus
 
Marni is also getting involved at the Salone del Mobile. The Italian fashion label is converting its showroom at Viale Umbria 42 into a ballroom for the event: dancers will perform Cumbia, a Columbian dance, dressed in pieces designed by Marni. This will also be a chance for the label to showcase a collection of chairs, chaise longues, small .tables, lamps and vases which are part of the label’s new home furnishings accessories range. Part of proceeds from the sale of these items will go to charity. 

Of course, the Salone del Mobile doesn't stop there - other fashion labels showing at the event include luxury fashion house Loewe and sportswear giant Nike.
