Milan Design Week 2022: guide to districts and events

The Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone will be back from 6 to 12 June 2022 with the usual format. Although the restrictions for the pandemic are still partly in force, the atmosphere is one of great expectations; there is great excitement for an edition that will certainly be special, if only because the Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone have been missing for two years if we do not consider the special edition of 2021.

The appointment with the Brera area and Brera Design District is always welcome.

The special projects in the Brera District

Higlights at Milan Design Week 2022

Casa Baglioni, the new hotel that will be opened in the Brera district by the end of the year, opens its building site to the Fuorisalone, housing the art exhibition “IN-BETWEEN. Between Art and Design.” The exhibition curated by Spagnulo & Partners describes the delicate relationship between art and design, the same relationship that characterizes the new Baglioni hotel, designed by Spagnulo & Partners. Works by three great international artists – Agostino Bonalumi, Anne Imohof and Giulio Paolini – define new languages for interior design, where architecture and art coexist and create new harmonies. These will also be the key themes of the future Casa Baglioni, which will be inspired by Milanese artistic avant-garde of the 1960s.

Time and space at Acquario Civico

The Acquario Civico will stage the interactive installation Momentum. Stark, a company that produces multimedia installations, will present a visual and experiential installation on the time-space/environment system. The work invites us to reflect on the actions we perform every day, which relate to space and transform it; it is still possible to create despite the inexorable march of time. The installation at the Civic Aquarium of Milan is also part of the Ocean Week, an event aimed at raising awareness of the general public on issues related to the blue economy, the protection of the seas and oceans, and the virtuous behaviors related to the ocean, a great natural heritage.
