The first exhibition in London to be dedicated to Italian design and curated by the renowned architect Giulio Cappellini, I-MADE will bring together exceptional design, quality and inspiration from Italy. The exhibition will not only present Italian innovation and craftsmanship but the passion and tradition of iconic Italian brands and designers. There will also be a series of design talks and workshops with esteemed Italian designers and architects that complements the main exhibition at Chelsea’s iconic Saatchi Gallery.

Exhibitor Highlights
A true celebration of Italian innovation and craftsmanship, I-MADE will bring together some of the biggest and most influential names in Italian design and display iconic works like pieces of art within the Saatchi Gallery.

Cappellini will bring a collection by Japanese design studio, Nendo to I-MADE and also hero the Thinking Man’s Chair by English designer Jasper Morrison. The Thinking Man’s Chair was first discovered by Giulio Cappellini at an exhibition in London in 1987, leading to a long collaboration between Morrison and the brand.

Living Divani joins I-MADE to celebrate the brand’s fiftieth anniversary and mark thirty years of collaboration with Art Director, Piero Lissoni. The family-owned company will present Lissoni’s statement Frog Lounge Chair at the exhibition. Another milestone will be celebrated at I-MADE as Poltronova commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the production of the Mies armchair by Archizoom; the chair was designed in 1969 as a tribute to the great architect Mies van der Rohe who died that same year.

Contemporary Italian furniture brand Moroso will present its latest collaborations including the new Gogan sofa by Patricia Urquiola and Johannes Torpe’s whimsical Heartbreaker sofa and Precious chairs which were inspired by Torpe’s own relationships and heartbreak.

Other confirmed exhibitors include award-winning lighting brand Luceplan who will bring a collection of suspended pendants and floor lamps to the show.

Alongside these classic furniture brands, Ceramica Flaminia will showcase the company’s leading-edge technology and artisan approach to manufacturing high-end products for the bathroom. Since 2004, Giulio Cappellini has worked with Ceramica Flaminia introducing them to some of the world’s most respected contemporary designers. These collaborations and Cappellini’s own designs for the brand will be shown during I-MADE.
