21 Mar The Alternative
April 12th-17th The Alternative solution for the social domain, Fuori Salone Milan Design Week, Italy
Place: Ex Ansaldo, Milan, Italy
During the coming Milan Design Week, Ex Ansaldo will be opening its doors on Via Tortona to socially responsible designers, companies and organisations. The aim of the exhibition is to bring solutions to present-day problems together in one building and to provide a platform for a new generation of designers.
More and more, designers are shifting their focus from the private to the public domain. Social and ecological issues are interpreted as design briefs from which alternative solutions are developed. Often in small steps that offer solutions to larger problems closer. The aim of the alternative is not only to provide a platform for alternative solutions, but also to present visitors with a world-view seen through the eyes of socially responsible designers.
The exhibition space is over 1000m2, lies in the beating heart of the Zona Tortona and is part of the Ex Ansaldo industrial complex, which was recently renovated and also houses the MUDEC Museo delle Culture.
Caravan is participating to this exhibition with ‘sensewear’ the project that received the grand prix at the Lexus Design Awards 2015.
