After the great success of the first edition, on the occasion of Milan Design Week 2018, Isola Design District opens the doors of hidden locations, private courtyards and artisan shops of the district will return in April with exhibitions, installations, workshops and events.
Obviously from 17th to 22nd April!
The theme, defined in two words, is Rethinking Materials.
The objective of the organization is to showcase projects that have highlighted the versatility of certain material, with a focus on eco-sustainability.
Here you can find the list of some of interesting events and designers you can discover!
In the opposite neighborhood of the district, at the Marelliello space in Viale Stelvio 66, Brut, a group of six emerging designers from Belgium, will make his debut at the Milan Design Week. They debut with bold movements and emotions beyond functionality.
The members of the collective Ben Storms, Bram Vanderbeke, Cedric Etienne, Charlotte Jonckheer, Linda Freya Tangelder and Nel Verbeke have chosen coal as the main element of the exhibition.
This raw material, in close connection with the industrial history of Belgium, will be used to create a landscape from which different levels and structures will emerge for each individual work.
Galleria Giuseppe Pero
At Giuseppe Pero Gallery, in Via Porro Lambertenghi 3, visitors will find another collective.
This time an Italian-Brazilian collective: Giorgio Bonaguro, Ronald Scliar Sasson and Gustavo Martini. The three designers decided to develop a common exhibition project in which their styles interact to tell different stories around a single precious material: marble.
In the Spazio RivaViva the furniture created by the designers of the “Sarajevo School” will arrive.
The collection will be signed by characters such as Salih Teskeredzic and Mustafa Cohadizic for Artisan and Gazzda, to compete for the first “RivaViva Eco Awards”.
The prize is to be awarded to the best ecological furniture. An event where design, health and sustainability are put into competition.
Designer Roxanne Brennen
The new Cherry Pit pastry shop will exhibit Roxanne Brennen’s Dining Toys. The French designer creates hand-made tableware, proposing a new way of living it, more sensual and intimate.
