Milan - Event


15 Apr 201822 Apr 2018

For Milan Design Week 2018, in the heart of 5vie, the unique historical central neighbourhood of Milan, Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte proposes a survey of international contemporary designers featuring new collectible design works inside a remarkable milanese palazzo. Eight international designers were asked to produce a work while unaware of the context. The brief was maybe an anti-brief, asking to make something that doesn’t have to be anything. Without standard parameters, the project aims to emancipate the designer from notions of style, spatial specifications and project demands. The focus is on creating objects that are active and autonomous agents in their environment, not complementing a space, but impacting it in their own right. The exhibition is produced by 5VIE art+design.

Anton Alvarez (USA)
Bahraini Danish (Bahrain)
Eric Schmitt (France)
Niamh Barry (Ireland)
Omer Arbel (Canada)
