The Design Village, Noida is participating as the only Indian School at Salone Satellite in Salone Del Mobile, Milan – Italy. This year the 24th edition of the SaloneSatellite runs from 18th to 23 April 2023, founded in 1998 by Marva Griffin and curated by her, “the Salone within the Salone ” dedicated to young design talents.


This event aims to facilitate the relationship between business and young designers preparing to enter the profession, post-study, and the market. Training and the challenges of the future are the main themes of SaloneSatellite, the vision is to showcase the work of designers under 35 and give them an opportunity to network with other emerging designers. The Arena of the SaloneSatellite will be enlivened by the Italian sculptor, designer, and architect Gaetano Pesce, he will inspire and infuse new energy into the young promises of international design.


Mridu Sahai, co-founder at The Design Village said “We are excited to be part of Salone Satellite 2023, as an Indian School presenter at the event. At the design village, we aim to inspire designers of the future and to connect design with impact. As a silo-agnostic, industry-centric, new-age design institute, we encourage learners to work on research-driven, design-intensive projects that redefine the role of a young designer in the industry. This exhibition is an inspirational event for bringing together young designers over the decade”.


This year the design village (TDV) will be the only Indian School among 27 international design schools presenting at Salone Satellite. At Salone Satellite, we present a small collection from our annual exhibition “dreamdoing”, sharing parts of our unique pedagogical model and a few projects which are exemplars of this shift in design philosophy. We at The Design Village dare to dream and also take up the challenge of doing– making our dreams a reality.


We are showcasing a range of projects, which touch upon a range of living situations and impact varying demographics in India. These projects range from outlining the impact on women’s populations through fashion and textile design to changing the lens of the food crisis of the refugee communities in New Delhi. They touch upon sustainable approaches to healthy living choices in the middle class while daring to reflect on the future through techniques of speculative and critical design.
