Now, Design Build Ideas will be featuring some of the main attractions one should definitely visit in Milan Design Week’s Isola District, but there are countless others, so make sure to attend this amazing event, from 17-22 April.
Rethinking Materials: The Versatile Theme of this Year’s Edition
A theme defined in two words will act as a glue between the exhibitions: Rethinking Materials. In fact, the organization’s goal is to showcase projects that have highlighted the versatility of certain materials: using them for the first time in this field, with an application different from the traditional one or in projects with a focus on eco-sustainability.
Latinoamerican Contemporary Design
Latinoamerican Contemporary Design will be an exhibition organized by eiDesign, with a collective of South American designers. The common thread that unites the 10 designers is the fusion of design objects with the contemporaneity and identity of each country, from Brazil to Ecuador, passing through Colombia and Mexico. Also in the Headquarter, there will be numerous events and workshops that will involve, among others, artisans and inhabitants of the area.
3D Printed Playground by Caracol Studio
This project was also featured in the 2017 edition and proposes the live creation of a children’s playground, whose components will be printed in 3D by an arm robotic during the entire duration of the Fuorisalone. To make prints, the robot sinuously follows a path that derives from a particular parametric design process and uses 100% recycled and recyclable materials.
Italian-Brazillian Designers Stand Out In Full Force
Giorgio Bonaguro, Ronald Scliar Sasson and Gustavo Martini will develop independent projects that will have a choral vision thanks to the selection of common materials for the realization of the products and to the same sources of inspiration for the definition of the shapes. This exhibition will take place at the Giuseppe Pero Gallery, in Via Porro Lambertenghi 3.
Castellani Top Design to Present Minimal Yet Eclectic Collection
In the spaces of the historical local Frida, the Tuscan company Castellani Top Design will present a minimal and eclectic collection contaminated by colour and art, bringing industrial design and worked entirely by hand metal in completely new scenarios.
Milan Design Market Is Back with a New Format
For its third edition, Milan Design Market will take place inside the Photographic Studio Gianni Rizzotti but with a completely new format. Visitors will have the opportunity to discover and purchase a careful selection of products, made from designers coming from all over the world, in a real Pop-Up Concept Store. There will also be a series of dedicated areas to start-up design and a Design Bar.
As a whole, Isola Design District boasts trendy venues like Corso Como, Corso Garibaldi and the new skyscrapers area of Porta Nuova. It is by supporting sectors like design, fashion, its local workshops, green design and gastronomy that the event has been able to develop its artistic and historical heritage and it only shows signs of growing even further.
