For this edition of Fuorisalone, IED opens exclusively for visitors of the Milan Design Week the IED House, the home of IED Alumni. From Tuesday, April 18 to Friday, April 21, it will be possible to visit the new exhibition of furniture and art projects by design graduates and meet the professionals of the IED Alumni Network, all accompanied by a live DJ set. The goal of the event is to create a place where the designers' works dialogue with each other and with the space itself, embodying the concept of a network that is real and alive.
In particular, projects by: Yellowdot, an award-winning design studio founded by Alumni Dilara Kan and Bodin Hon; Lucrezia Viperina and Margherita Caspani, illustrators graduated from IED Milano; Paolo Conte, product designer from IED Torino; Nicolas Mosulen, designer from Madrid; Mario Alessiani, product designer from IED Roma; Andrea Chronopoulus, Italian-Greek illustrator from IED Roma, among the founders of Studio Pilar; Carolina Manes, textile designer from IED Rio; Matteo Vilardo and Marcello Marino, product designers from IED Milno; Pierpaolo Nieri and Giovanni Longhi, designers from Florence and Como, respectively; and Studio Cono founded by Davide Piersanti and Ginevra Franchi, designers from Milan.
On Thursday, April 20, starting at 7 p.m., IED Alumni celebrates the creativity of its network with a party with free access upon registration a few steps away from IED House, in the school's courtyard at Via Sciesa 4. Stars of the event are Marco Inselvini, considered the best laser artist in the world by the International Laser Display Association, with his show made of music and laser animations, the winners of the Doodle art contest promoted by Red Bull, selected by a jury that includes Giulio Mosca aka ilbaffogram, and Andrea Crespi, artist and IED Alumnus, curator of the doodle exhibition. The event will feature also the artist Jago, who will exhibit one of his latest works and is part of the contest jury.

What is IED House?
IED House, opened in 2022 at 14 Via Sciesa, in the Institute's historic headquarters in Milan, is the first space completely dedicated to IED Alumni from around the world. A coworking space and meeting room for organizing meetings. A place to get together, network or just spend some time in the city. A lounge to be experienced also as a place to relax among sofas, poufs and music, coffee and drinks for guests. Since its opening, IED House has already hosted interviews, shootings, creative brainstorms and talks, as well as hosting the daily flow of Alumni. IED House Milan is the first in a series of locations that will open in cities where IED has a presence. After Milan, it will open in Barcelona, Madrid, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
