One of the most keenly-awaited exhibitions at “supersalone” is The Lost Graduation Show, curated by Anniina Koivu, which will showcase 170 projects by students who graduated between 2020 and 2021, from 48 schools of design in 22 different countries. Aalto University is one of the schools taking part.

The format of the exhibition is a first in the history of the Salone del Mobile. With this exhibition Milano, touching traditionally on all areas of furniture design, is making excursions into the world of mobility, inclusive, medical and sports design, materials research and design sustainability. The exhibition inspires and acts as a stimulus for audiences both professional and non-professional. It also encourages schools to teach the sort of design that channels “disruptive” practices, generating responsible, intelligent and accessible projects both now and in the future.

Alongside the physical exhibition, you can follow the show on Instagram @thelostgraduationshow Lastly, a jury of international experts and protagonists of the design world will assess the projects on exhibit and assign awards to the best in each category.
