Milan Design Week 2018: Isola District to Have Strong Global Presence ⇒ The Isola Design District saw its inception just last year counting with the participation of over 100 designers and brands where young designers, artisans and emerging brands animated the spectacular Isola neighbourhood with one-of-a-kind exhibitions and installations. This extraordinary feat is set to be repeated from 17-22 April in the midst of one of the most prestigious design weeks in the entire world, Milan Design Week.

Rethinking Materials

 

This year, the district will be characterised by a strong international presence, thanks to the adhesion of designers coming from all over the world. 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.

In comparison with the previous edition, the local activities and the symbolic places of the district involved will increase, widening the perimeter of the district. ADA Stecca will be the Headquarter, with the main info point and a press lounge dedicated to the press. But not only that, it will also host Latinoamerican Contemporary Design, 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.
