February and September are fashion months, but April, in Milan, becomes the symbol of design. The Milan Design Week 2018, an event made of bilateral meetings between business entrepreneurs, architects and designers, held during the Salone del Mobile, will take place from the 17th to the 22nd. It will feature the Salone Internazionale del Complemento d’Arredo, the biennial EuroCucina with the FTK (Technology For the Kitchen) event and the Salone Internazionale del Bagno. There will also be the Salone Satellite, dedicated to young designers.
The city will change its face thanks to the Fuorisalone: a hub of exhibitions and events, where the emerging talents in the industry can meet the big names and talk about their projects and visions of the future. There will be open-to-the public designevents in every area, accompanied by many temporary exhibitions: from technology to automotive, art, fashion and food.
In the Lambrate, Brera and Isola district there will be Design Districts: meeting points where many companies will present their innovative projects for each sector by maintaining a common denominator: design. Lofts, apartments and schools will be the venue for exhibitions and presentations: over a thousand events will be scheduled in a week.
Also this year, architect Simone Micheli will be among the protagonists at Lambrate, at the Officina Ventura 14, where he will create Hotel Regeneration, an experimental exhibition space which will have as its focus the process of requalification of contemporary hotel structures and its future existence, by enhancing combination of intents and the research to develop innovation and technological advancement.
Many events will be scheduled in the evening: after 9.00 pm, in the Lambrate district, there will be WEating in the Din-Design In internal garden, and Street Food Experience in the Ventura garden. Don’t miss the Osteria Milano culinary event, in via Sbodio 30: it will be a design landmark and its courtyard will feature emerging designers’ projects and live performances.
