The First Fall Design Week Edition in Milan

For the first time after Fuorisalone, we have a new appointment with design in Milan, which is going to entertain you for a whole week, we are talking of the Fall Design Week, which started on the 1st of October and is ending on the 9th. An initiative by the Milan municipality with the aim to promote collective and cultural manifestations, supporting the fashion and design sectors, and making the role of Milan, as the capital of these two creative fields, internationally stronger.

“Fall Design Week 2016” is not a copy of Fuorisalone, but a “ninedays” full of meetings, talks, films and exhibitions thought and set up by the main traders of design and architecture, that give life to a series of activities open to the public in the city of Milan. A new opportunity to create another week dedicated to the research and thoughts behind the future of design and architecture, a chance to build a network towards the discovery of the project culture. Here below all the appointments you can not miss. Enjoy!

W. Women in Italian Design – At Palazzo della Triennale, from the 2nd of April to the 19th of February, the exhibition “W. Women in Italian Design” is open. This traces a new history of female Italian design, rebuilding figures, theories, design attitudes which have been sowed during the 19th century and got established, transformed and evolved during the XXI century. Triennale Design Museum celebrates women as a new creative subject for a less assertive, and less authoritarian design, with a more spontaneous and dynamic side. In order to question if the new female limelight is between the main interprets of the “Design after Design”.
