Nao Tamura

Salone del Mobile 2023

Marking the return of the biennial exhibition, the great Aurore arena at Euroluce, designed by Formafantasma, will be hosting a packed palimpsest of talks on light and on sustainability, held by some of the most brilliant figures on the contemporary lighting design scene, but that’s by no means all.

The fresh round of Talks at the Salone del Mobile. Milano provides an opportunity for crosscutting insight into how planning, design and architecture can embrace the present and imagine the future, open up new avenues, come up with solutions, and explore the realms of the “possible,” triggering reflection and imagination. The packed program has been curated by Annalisa Rosso.

“Blending poetry, abstraction and the use of innovative technologies, Nao Tamura, a former SaloneSatellite debutante and winner of the 1st SaloneSatellite Award, is one of the most interesting designers on the international scene. Her multidisciplinary approach, environmental awareness and interest in workmanship combine to make her a particularly representative exponent of our day. In Interconnection, in conversation with Felix Burrichter, Creative Director of America’s PIN–UP magazine, informed by her fascination with lighting – whether it be lamps, installations or site-specific projects – she will illustrate the ways in which design is a method of communication and how it steers the creative process, lighting the way towards a better and more sustainably planned future.”
