Italian design: Fuorisalone digital
- WTI Magazine #128 Jun 20, 2020
Every year, when April comes around, Milan becomes the center of the design world thanks to the Salone Internazionale del Mobile and Fuorisalone, two of the most important events for the design addicted. Unfortunately, last April the Milan Design Week was cancelled due to Covid-19 but Fuorisalone found a new creative way to still offer its magic to its aficionados.
Born out of necessity but with the goal to stay with us for a long time, this year Fuorisalone will be held online with a digital edition running from June 15th to 21st on www.fuorisalone.it
In fact, this iconic platform will be enriched with new functions which will allow people from all over the world to participate to this event from remote, even in the next years.
This edition will be full of many interesting activities such as live talks, products previews, documentaries, lessons, interviews and concerts… all free! The initiative, which was organized by Studiolabo, is going to involve some of the most important Milan Design Week districts: Brera Design District, Isola Design District, Tortona Design Distric - just to name a few.
There’ll be 30 hours of live talks and more than 200 videos on demand, which can be overwhelming so… here are some of the online events that you can’t miss: “The Design System must be protected. Design, for its part, must commit to redesigning the System” organized by Belgium is Design and with the aim to reflects on the ways that designers and companies can help with after Covid-19. But also “Regenerate”, a talk organized by WORTH Partnership Project about circular economy, innovation and craftsmanship 4.0.
With more than 300 companies and designers ready to join this edition, Fuorisalone Digital is going to be a not-to-miss event if you love design! To know more about each event, read the full program on www.fuorisalone.it
