Titled Masterly – The Dutch in Milano Dutch designers, artisan producers and design agencies present themselves in the centre of Milan.

At the fascinating Palazzo Francesco Turati the Dutch pavilion arises again with the best design and artisan craftsmanship the Netherlands has to offer.

Excellent Dutch design, fashion and photography has soul and its own identity.

The pavilion functions as a close unity with two distinguished pillars.

In the historic spaces of the Palazzo, historic and contemporary design melt into a breath taking exhibition.

At the contemporary spaces of the Palazzo, Dutch companies and top designers who hold high the banner of artisan craftsmanship and fine design are represented.

During the Salone del Mobile the Dutch pavilion is a beacon of sublime design, quality, artisan craftsmanship and innovation. Joined forces that draw attention and publicity. With the museum exhibition and presentations that strike at the design Mecca Milan.

The beautiful, partially covered, courtyard of the Palazzo offers the perfect location for a little lounge break. Then there is the roof top terrace on the fifth floor, that offers a phenomenal view of Milan. An ideal place to chat, network and simply savour the moment.

For the second time the fully restored Palazzo Francesco Turati opens its doors during the Salone del Mobile.

Masterly – The Dutch in Milano welcomes you!

Salone del Mobile

The Salone del Mobile is the annual international design fair. For more than 50 years this event takes place in Milan. The Salone sets the worldwide bar for exclusive design and high quality products.

The fairgrounds yearly draw over 300.00 business and professional visitors from all over the world. Where the fair mainly focuses on interior design, at Milan’s city centre simultaneously hundreds of presentations are being held to explore and admire design with a broader scope.

The Salone therefore offers unparalleled opportunities and chances to present the qualities of Dutch Design to an audience of the public, professionals and press on a global scale.

The Dutch Design Pavilion is situated at the Palazzo Francesco Turati. The Palazzo is the exclusive domain of Dutch Design.

The organisation collaborates intensively with the Milan Chamber of Commerce, the Dutch Embassy and the consulate-general in Milan. Together with local partners we run a strong PR campaign.

During the Salone the Palazzo is a hotspot not to be missed.

The Dutch Pavilion is situated at Palazzo Francesco Turati during the Salone del Mobile. The palace was built between 1873 and 1876 at the request of Count Fransesco Turati, a well-respected tradesman in the cotton industry.

Architect Enrico Combi, registered with the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, designed and built the marvellous neo renaissance palace, right at the heart of the town centre in walking distance of the Duomo.

The Palazzo Francesco Turati is in use by the Milan Chamber of Commerce.

The perfectly restored historic spaces at the Palazzo Francesco Turati are characterised by the beautifully laid wooden floors, marble doors and ornaments in gold lustre, wall coverings in velvet and silk and stunning hand carved panelling.

The outstanding Italian craftsmanship forms a great decor for the intriguing museum exhibition of Dutch design.
