This year’s SaloneSatellite 2018 not only explored the theme of rising design in Africa and Latin America, it also invited its worldwide counterpart—which, since 2005, has been held in Moscow, Russia—to exhibit its award winners from 2017.

The Moscow selections included first place winner Alexandra Fedotova for her bathroom mirror piece MOON. Valeria Sergienko won second place for PERCEPTION, a collection of cups made from raw recycled leather, paper, plastic, styrofoam and glass. Third place was given to Nikolay Gryaznev for his MAGNETIC STORM which manufactures design objects from polyester paint and coatings to create stonelike results.

All 650 exhibitors of Milan’s SaloneSatellite competed to be one of the three best projects. You can check out an ensemble of fun images of the event on the SaloneSatellite Flickr website. International designers and architects made up the Selection Committee and announced the winners during Salone del Mobile:
