The names of the young designers and companies that will represent Lombard design excellence at Expo 2020 Dubai have been announced
During the Design Week 2019, the winners of the Design Competition Expo Dubai 2020,were announced. Now in its seventh edition, the call for ideas addressed to under 35 designers and Lombardy-based companies asked the participants to develop design ideas concerning “Connecting Spaces”, in line with Expo 2020’s theme “Connecting minds, Creating the future”.
Spaces connected through design objects that recall the Italian artisanal tradition interpreted in an innovative way (Innovative Crafting), and through digital tools, IoT, new house automation technologies applied to design and information design (Digital Connecting Spaces), or temporary structures designed to connect people (Design for Human Connection).
The twenty winners of the Design Competition, awarded with non-repayable grants up to €20.000 to develop their prototypes, will exhibit at Expo 2020 Dubai (20 October 2020 – 10 April 2021).
The winning teams will be able to exhibit their products in important Italian venues and during events dedicated to design, to present them to the commissioners involved in the building of the national pavilions and to the UAE market.
