    Milano Design Week 2024

    From 15.04.2024

    to 21.04.2024

    Durini Design District Milano (DDD Milano) is the district for high-quality design, made up of 40 internationally recognised brands united under the association Milano Durini Design. A place with more than 40,000 square metres of exhibition space where projects and products tell the story of Italian-made excellence; a place where you can enjoy exclusive experiences and discover the latest trends; a district that offers brand-new products and solutions for the industry and design enthusiasts every year.

    Colour Design Experience. Colour Design Experiece is the theme selected by Durini Design District Milano for the 2024 edition of Design Week, when the city of Milan becomes the undisputed global centrepiece of furniture and design. Colour is design, substance, emotion, the essential element of everyday living. Designers around the world have always been engaged in a never-ending quest for colour harmony to make every object and every design even more balanced and appealing. The theme of colour will be represented by a series of visual elements with urban appeal that will form an underlying thread within the MDD district.

    Dreamlike Colours – exploring Nick Maltese Studio's figurative exhibition in the Durini district. Starting with Design Week 2024, Durini Design District Milano will team up with emerging and experienced architecture and design firms every year to create an integrated visual communication project: installations distributed across key points in the district as iconic elements that encapsulate the area’s identity.

    For the 2024 edition, the figurative exhibition Dream Up, created by the architecture firm Nick Maltese Studio, will offer visitors the opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience in the world of dreams and artistic visions. The works will integrate organically into the surrounding urban environment, creating an evocative dialogue between art, architecture and colour.

    Through a collaboration with the association Milano Durini Design, the exhibition will be transformed into a sensory and artistic experience in which imagination and the infinite expressive possibilities of colour will light up the heart of Milan during Design Week.

    Let's turn design!

    The installation project conceived by Studio AMS and Magis-Salvioni design solutions offers a reflection on the evocative power of colour through the creation of an exciting installation during Milan Design Week 2024. Love, Dream, Design, Colour, Fantasy, Motion: a roundabout of emotions that reaches its maximum expression in colour.

    The aim is to celebrate design through a colour- themed customisation art installation that is a hymn to the ‘joie de vivre’ and transforms Piazza San Babila into a colourful, lively and playful new stage, offering a new look at urban reality.

      Milano Design Week 2023

      From 17.04.2023

      to 23.04.2023

      With over 140,000 estimated visitors and 30,000 square meters of exhibition spaces dedicated to Interior Design among the most exclusive in the city centre, the Milano Design District, with its 41 associates, is preparing to revitalize the city center during Design Week 2023 with multiple initiatives aimed at investigating the deeper meaning of the term Design: an introspective research on the theme of URBAN METAMORPHOSIS.

      The Design product arises from innovative ideas often linked to strong moments of interaction and social change, a path of metamorphosis also dictated by external impulses that bring novelty and richness.
      From here the innovative project of "giving shape to ideas" takes shape in a process of positive metamorphosis aimed at sustainable regeneration: a city can change, improving its intimacy through the florid contribution of the world of Design and its stakeholders widespread?
      The answer intimately encompasses the very genesis of the Design product and the new challenges of living towards which we are all attentive.
      Spring, the period in which the Design Week falls, is the season of birth, awakening, flowering, it is a natural metamorphosis that expires every year the vital alternation of the seasons. With this synergy of signifiers and as many synergistic metaphorical links as a reference, the MDD district will be set up as a widespread garden in spring tones.

      The MDD evening, with extraordinary openings guaranteed until 10.00 pm, is scheduled for Thursday 04.20.2023.

      With pleasure, the Milano Durini Design association will formalize during the Design Week the award ceremony for the winning students of the graphic competition "a logo for MDD" thanks to the participation of 3 important Italian universities excellently coordinated by AIAP, the Italian Association of Visual Communication Design: ISIA of Urbino, IUAV of Venice and Polytechnic of Milan.

      Furthermore, thanks to the collaboration between all MDD associates, the hashtag MilanoDesignDistrict will be officially launched on social media, so that anyone can contribute by sending images, comments, suggestions and anything deemed useful to tell and testify what will happen this week in the MDD district.

      MDD planning will be expressed in synergy with the evolution of the city of MILAN to share definitive street furniture solutions: hence a forthcoming design process to define the urban branding lines of the MDD district.
      A unique and exclusive district of the city center that brings together the excellence of Design and its main protagonists

        Milano Design Week 2022

        As part of the Milano Design Week 2022 (from 6th to 12th June 2022) several leading companies in the sector that are members of the Milano Durini Design Association offered the results of their efforts and work to fellow professionals and the public, presenting new products against unique and evocative backdrops. This underlines the current dynamism and is an important economic commitment to the country's recovery and Milan's strategic representation internationally.

        Once again, the Milano Design District is dedicated to promoting the culture of design and the concept of ‘Made in Italy’ during Design Week. Inside the showrooms (with over 20,000 m of space devoted to the world of design) there there have been a wide range of events promoting design.

        The theme of the urban road project for the year 2022 was Life&Nature Design: an urban forest was set up in its various stages of growth with birches, hornbeams, perennial flowers and grasses.

        We wanted to place an evocative emphasis on the importance of alternating cycles and respect for the environment as part of the production process, in which every element needed to create a design product - whatever it may be - must be in harmony and balance with the others
