Diverse Life With Compact

The concentration of population in urban areas has been causing the residential spaces in cities worldwide to decrease in size. For Salone del Mobile.Milano 2018, sanwacompany released eight unique compact kitchens as the solutions to the global trend and was awarded the Salone del Mobile.Milano award, the first for an Asian company. In 2020, sanwacompany will be exhibiting in S.Project to address the same issue as in 2018 but with a further comprehensive approach by utilizing all of its expertise in developing products suitable for small residential spaces.
Besides kitchens, sanwacompany offers products including washbasins, doors, floorings, tiles and more, encompassing most of the residential spaces. Using varieties of our products, the three teams of designers create innovative and urban living spaces that may not resemble conventional apartments.
We continue to explore the infinite possibilities of urban living environments centered on a compact kitchen,
…of the present
perhaps the future―
We enrich human lives by rendering compact but diverse ways of living.

What is S.Project?

The new exhibition hall “S.Project” launched in 2019 is a new format of presentation in the constantly evolving world of interior space–a new multi-dimensional exhibition space gathering products from diverse domains. By bringing together exhibitors from all exhibitions, (“Salone Internazionale del Mobile”, “Salone del Complemento d’Arredo”, “Workplace 3.0”, “Eurocucina”, “Salone Internazionale Del Bagno”, and “Euroluce”), the hall creates a synergy to meet the demands of the market provided in every direction of view 360 degrees.
