At every edition of the trade show, in what is an eagerly expected event on the design scene, M&O puts six young talents under the spotlight, all of whom have been sponsored by powerful mentors. In January, we’re off to Italy!
Talent scouts all over the world, in addition to everybody with a keen eye for upcoming trends, are rubbing their hands in glee as they impatiently wait for January to come around once more. Every year, the Rising Talents Awards keep their promises and reveal some real gems. This session pays tribute to Italy with the invaluable assistance of the Italian Trade Agency*. The 6 talents made in Italy were carefully selected by 6 renowned figures, who accepted to become their mentors: Andrea Branzi, Giulio Cappellini, Rosita Missoni, Piero Lissoni, Luca Nichetto and Rossana Orlandi. Simply by following their hearts these mentors have come up with an exciting palette of designers.
Each of their choices is a worthy representative of a new generation of Italian designers that is striving for excellence, in touch with the last word in Italian craftsmanship and open to the world around them.
