We have already mentioned the event in our 20th of April 2017 related post- but here a small taste of the fantastic photos realized by Mario Grisolli:  Steve Jobs o visionario: the state-of-the-art exhibition designed by Migliore + Servetto, held in Rio de Janeiro already and re-opened on 15th at the MIS in San Paolo, (with an inauguration on 14th of June).

The exhibition project- conceived by Migliore+Servetto Architects is created and produced by Fullbrand and curated by Cecilia Botta at the Pier MauĂ  in Rio de Janeiro and then at the MIS in San Paolo -"builds a path of knolewdge structured in narrative cells which allow the visitor from time to time to establish a new relationship with the contents of the exhibition".

..."Faced with such a complex and multi-faceted personality, we conceived the set up as the sum of eight environments which are  very different  one to another, designed in order to let the visitor get closer to each theme in a unique and engaging way.”... 
Ico Migliore + Mara Servetto.


Fancy a stroll up in U.K this September? In the Cambridge Home + Garden Show some of our most cherished designers and manufacturers will be there not only to exhibit but to host and sponsor customer centered, support events, guiding through the visitors with essential, personalized consultation for their OWN house design- like the Ask Me Anything service sponsored by Mineheart! Be there and get the advice you need for re-designing your residence, by the very best in the trade!!!


Stay tuned for the announcement of the A4D-D4A new design seminars and webinars, soon to be launched?-))) We promise some super exciting series of knowledgeable, intense, updated and innovative design lectures and workshops, custom made to the Future NOW. 
Until then,

Best regards
