All About the Brera Design District of Milan Design Week 2018
From the 17th to the 22nd of April, Milan will host another highly anticipated edition of the Milan Design Week, one of the major design events in Europe. There will be several points of interest during this event, but some of the most interesting design action will take place in the iconic and extraordinary Brera Design District, one of the top design districts of Milan!
In the world of design, but mainly in the world of the Milan Design Week, the Brera Design District is a mandatory stop! It’s one of the most important district in Italy for the promotion of design, the latter of which is one of the most creative and commercial focal points in the country. The district aims to support excellence and to develop business and real estate in the area, enhancing the district’s cultural supply and appeal as well as fusing tradition and innovation in the all-encompassing field of design.
Located in the historic centre of Milan, Brera has always been an area with focus on commercial, artistic and cultural development. The district embraces some of the city’s most prestigious historic buildings as well as more than 80 permanent design stores, artisans’ workshops, art galleries, shops, museums, the Accademia delle Belle Arti, the Pinacoteca, the scale, and various others cultural and art centres. For all of these reasons and others, Brera Design District is regarded as one of the most elegant and visited quarters in the city, becoming the idyllic stage to support and celebrate the many shapes and forms of art and design.
More than 200 exhibitors are expected to present their new projects and ideas to a design perceptive and culturally oriented public. These showcases will be enhanced by the artsy nature and surroundings of the district, especially the narrow and cobbled streets that encompass a wide range of antique shops, showrooms and galleries.
Antonio Lupi, Boffi, Caesarstone, Dedar Milano, Foscarini, Hay, La Chance, Lexus, Magis, Nike Stadium, Molteni&C Dada, Moroso, Republic of Fritz Hansen and Wall&decò are some of the leading brands you can expect in this highly curated district.
