5VIE Design Week 2021
5VIE presents the eighth edition of 5VIE Design Week. The 2021 edition will have at its center, more than objects, the ideas, which are the root of design. To design is to launch oneself forward; to design is to sow the seeds that will germinate tomorrow.
The events and initiatives of 5VIE Design Week will include 5VIE productions, exhibitions and installations with guests and partners, meetings, talks and entertainment.
Among the various performances that will take place in these days, 5VIE presents four designers of international importance, whose work will be declined in a site-specific manner within as many installations-events:
Jorge Penadés, Spanish designer, in via Cesare Correnti 14 presents the performance LOOKS LIKE MAGIC!
Native of Benevento is Sara Ricciardi, who proposes an itinerant installation-performance along the streets of 5VIE;
In Via Santa Marta 18, at SIAM (location to be confirmed), Francesco Pace with his studio Tellurico, presents the performance Untitled 1B;
also at SIAM will be Richard Yasmine, who will be streaming from his studio in Lebanon for the duration of the event.
Among the prestigious collaborations are those with:
