Having a bad case of the Mondays today? Then how about this for your Monday motivation? It’s Fall Design Week in Milan! Last year was the first year for this monumental event. I gleaned information about it from wheremilan.com as noted below.
“For 9 days visitors to the city will enjoy hundreds of events, all focused on design and happening in different locations in the districts of Brera (workshops part of the Brera Design Days) and Lambrate and in other locations such as Viale Monza, Museo del Novecento, Palazzo Morando, Teatro Franco Parenti and La Fabbrica del Vapore.
The most interesting events included new projects by big national and international companies and the presence of the POLI.design school, Elle Decor, ADI-Associazione per il Disegno Industriale, Alessi, and others.
