The magnificent 7000 square meters OCA building hosted also the exhibition DESIGNERSBLOK full of talented international designers Andrew Knott, Jorunn Hustoft, Coralie Bonnet, Masako Sato and many more.
Very exciting places to visit were also The Triennale Design Museum with more than 30 national exhibitions and Temporary Museum for New Design. However, the whole city, galleries, design shops, streets and even garages were living and breathing design.
The Milan Design Week and the festival fuoriMICRO was not only full of innovative and thrilling design, art and architecture, but also full of exciting experiences, new encounters, workshops and of course beautiful books. We could not resist to new discoveries by Cesura, Studio Fludd, Print about me, Rumore Nero, Museurola edizioni and other thrilling independent projects.
