Project

Alcova


Alcova is an itinerant platform for freethinking design. A project by Space Caviar and Studio Vedèt

Alcova is a platform for design developed by Space Caviar and Studio Vedèt. Currently operating as an itinerant network of exhibition spaces across multiple sites in and around Milan, it activates forgotten locations of historical significance, temporarily recasting them as venues for performative activities.

After having two years bringing back to life the historic spaces of the Cova & G bakery, on the occasion of the Fuori Salone (4-12 September 2021), Alcova will open to the public another Milanese site just a few steps away from the Inganni metro station. Three historical buildings of extraordinary charm, immersed in a large urban park: approximately 3500 square meters of indoor and outdoor spaces with over 50 exhibitors including independent designers, innovative brands, galleries, cultural institutions and companies. 

As for previous editions, Alcova 2021 is characterized by the variety of the ideas and themes converging in its displays, capturing a snapshot of a rapidly evolving world. Ecological, political and anthropological discourse, tales about the history of design or expressions of new exhibition currents intertwine convincingly across the many new pieces in this new edition.
