Today we’re delving into one of the most recent events that came to Milan and which will be occurring during Milan Design Week 2019. We’re talking about Asia Design Milano, an initiative dedicated to exposing the best of Oriental Design.
The very first edition of this event was launched last year during the Design Week 2018, at Megawatt Court. Since then it’s gained the patronage of the Milan Municipality, becoming the city’s first showcase of design, architecture and art projects from different parts of Asia. This initiative features art from countries like China, Japan, India, Iran, Korea, Qatar, Thailand, and Turkey.
Asia Design Milano is the result of the teamwork between Sarpi Bridge_Oriental Design Week and Milano Space Makers. This first group, whose work aims to create a bridge between the design works of the East and West, also hosts other outstanding events in Milan such as HOMI ASIA DESIGN in Fiera Milano and OO!ASIA art + design + food. Milano Space Makers, on the other hand, is one of the main players in Zona Tortona, having a circuit of approximately 30 exhibition paces under its control.
This year Asia Design Milano is back to Milan Design Week and will be showcasing a carefully curated selection of established artists, brands and upcoming designers in the Tortona district. The event will be having several different functional areas: exhibition, meetings, seminars&conferences, food&relax, and chill out. One of the main initiatives to look out for this year is the ASIA Produce-MI a free exhibition space which will be featuring new prototypes to be proposed to potential Asian design manufacturers.
