MilanDesignWeek2012  Design Agenda – Milan Design Week 2012 MilanDesignWeek2012I am pretty happy because Milan Design Week 2012 is almost here. From Tuesday 17 to Sunday 22 April 2012 I will be in Milan enjoying the best design from all over the world.

I am very excited to visit ISaloni – The Salone del Mobile, the global benchmark for the Home Furnishing Sector. Moroso + Diesel will be presenting a storage cabinet, Mindstream, which creates visual worlds turning a static object into a dynamic one. Can’t wait to see it in loco!

As I will be staying a week at Milan, hopefully I will not miss the event Tortona Design Week, the pararel event to iSaloni which has been taking place for the last ten years in the area around Via Tortona, Via Savona and Via Stendhal – and that has undergone a complete makeover. Since 2011, the event has been given a new name, a new logo (designed by Stefano Giovannoni, the internationally renowned designer and a leading proponent of the neighbourhood’s revitalisation), and a new visual identity; all with the direct involvement of the neighbourhood’s leading businesses. Tortona Design Week is an event series aimed at supporting businesses and designers who choose to exhibit in the neighbourhood’s large industrial spaces. An unprecedented blend of big brands, worldwide recognised design stars, up-and-coming new talents arriving from all around the world makes the event a unique, transversal and multifaceted observation point on the industrial design scene.

If you can’t make it, don’t worry! I’ll bring you all the design novelties and I will make you experience all of the great products and design discussion.
