Stala at Milan Design Week from 17 to 23 April 2023

Stala participates in the Milan Design Week at the Habitarematerials stand. Habitarematerials will be featured at Milan Design Week from 17 to 23 April 2023, when the Salone del Mobile, the most important design fair, and the concurrent Fuorisalone event, bring people from the world of design to the city. This is going to be a unique encounter between an international design audience and Finnish materials manufacturers.


The Habitarematerials exhibition to be staged in Milan will be part of the Alcova showcase, which is curated by Joseph Grima and Valentina Ciuff. Alcova has been one of the most fascinating and followed events of Milan Design Week in recent years, bringing together influencers from the world of design. This will be the first time that Habitare, Finland’s largest furniture, design and interior decoration event, has brought its own exhibition to an international event outside Finland. 

“Habitarematerials is a material library that is available to everyone, letting people touch the samples, experiment, and create something new. The exhibition offers visitors space and freedom to browse through materials and explore their own tastes by experimenting with different combinations of surfaces and colours. The materials are attractively presented, and there is product information on each sample that visitors can photograph and take with them for making purchases,” say Jussi Laine and Maria Klemetti Laine of NEMO architects, who add:

“The material selection at the Milan exhibition emphasises innovation, and we especially invite the participation of independent researchers in materials science and of educational institutions. Finnishness is manifested through the responsibility and sustainability of material production. The participating companies are committed to responsible practices.”


The exhibition features 14 Finnish companies. In addition to Stala, Cover Story, CWP Oy, Durat, Johanna Gullichsen, Kärävä, Nordic Copper, Novo Wood, Pihlgren&Ritola, Sera Helsinki, Luonnon Betoni, Laatupaneeli, Tulikivi and VM-Carpet will be displayed on the stand.

The exhibition, which is unique even internationally, provides a unique platform for Finnish companies to become recognised within the international design community and to profile themselves internationally, as Milan Design Week and the concurrent Salone del Mobile furniture fair constitute the most important event in the industry, inviting pioneers from all over the world to come together.
