To all design globetrotters outhere: here what's left to schedule this summer for your country-hop, around the most utterly exciting design-related events about to pop the upcoming months.
1. D Museum in Seoul launches this September the exhibition PLASTIC FANTASTIC in collaboration with Kartell. 40 mega-designers present through their works for the house the metamorphosis of the most ambivalent, ambiguous, ingenious and resistent material of the last 70 years and certainly the unique way Kartell illustrates all its properties, qualities and poetry. The duration of the exhibition will be from the 14th of September 2017 until the 4th of March 2018. (More info on www.kartell.it)
2. From Wednesday 11th to Saturday 14th of October 2017, Salone del Mobile moves to Moscow for the I Saloni Worldwide series at Crocus-Expo 2 center. It is the annual, usual meeting of two of the most significant forces of European design, the italian contemporary production and the Russian (new) avant-garde. The show will provide many further attractions, (apart the anchorage to its mother event, Salone del Mobile 2017 in Milan), such as Master Classes with leading designers and architects like Simone Ciarmoli and Miguel Queda (curators of the DeLightFul Exhibition at this year's Salone), legendary architect Massimo Iosa Ghini and also Cristina Celestino, one of the SaloneSatellite prominent new talents. Speaking of the SaloneSatellite, the 13th edition of SaloneSatellite Worldwide Moscow will be held again to discover and nominate as passionately as ever, the best new designers, originated from the vast soviet territory and eventually distribute awards to the three finalists (follow the link bellow to last year's entry and winner, super-talented Natalie Musorina and her showstopper, "Torsion" chair, http://musorina.com/torsion-chair ).
3. Fancy a stroll up in Londinium? Two major design exhibitions are taking place in the British capital: Franco Grignani: Art as Design, 1950-1990 at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art presents the influential works of this Italian pioneer graphic designer and artist, creator of the "Woolmark" international logo. California: Designing Freedom at the Design Museum is documenting the exciting evolution of the refreshed, hippy modernism of the 60's to the tech extreme design elite of the Silicon Valley. A true cultural rollercoaster....
4. Some more happy news arrived from the Migliore + Servetto headquarters: the lighting system designed for the new Mondadori Megastore I-MESH lightweight diffuser ceilings, has been awarded the silver medal in the product design category of IDA - International Design Award. Congrats Migliore + Servetto!
Stay tuned for more news and ventures on our behalf, by mid-September!
Keep having fun?-))
