The most intense design week of the year is over. It took me quite a few weeks to digest all the information and the visual input. In this post I would like to share my personal impressions from Milan Design Week 2019. The sheer number of events of the Fuorisalone happening around Milan at times felt overwhelming, but as you will see, I organised my itinerary mainly around exhibitions related to art and environmental topics. While it’s true that, unfortunately, some events open to the general public lacked the scale and innovation of previous editions, I still found those that were thought-provoking or simply appealed to my sensitivity.
For my recap, I’ve chosen design installations with a spatial dimension, set up in the historical environments of Milan. They transformed these locations with contemporary vibes and the end result, a poetic mix of the past and present, created a high visual impact. If you’re curious or missed any of them, I invite you to discover my picks.
