The Best of Brera Design Week 2024

News, Appointments, Milan — 02 March 2024

Everything that will happen in the historic district of the heart of Milan during Design Week 2024, when showrooms, exhibition spaces, outdoor locations and many other initiatives come alive.

Brera Design District presents the fifteenth edition of its Design Week supporting "Materia Natura", the theme proposed by Fuorisalone to highlight design practices that encourage a conscious design culture that looks to the areas of sustainability with inclusive solutions capable of offering points of unprecedented perspectives on the environmental, economic and social impacts.

Brera Design Week 2024 will involve the design industry together with the entire community of emerging and enthusiasts, focusing on themes such as: innovation of materials, service design, art, domestic landscape, technology and living. On the part of the exhibitors, particular attention will be paid to the constantly evolving market, considering consumption and lifestyle, as well as the ways in which people, places and objects relate to each other in a culture increasingly oriented towards the immaterial.

It is expected that in the district there will be over 260 events that will participate in the Brera Design Week schedule - also considering the 196 permanent showrooms, which include 15 new openings from May 2023. These numbers confirm Brera's role as the most relevant and important at an international level for the world of design, not only during the Fuorisalone in April, but throughout the year. This density of offer and the quality that distinguishes the permanent commercial establishments make the Brera Design District a point of reference thanks to its peculiar identity, which brings together tradition, lifestyle, culture, art, food and wine and hotel industry.

The illustrations of Brera Design Week 2024
The images of the Brera Design Week in 2024 come to life for the first time thanks to the signature of Studio Ianus, which interprets the district through animated illustrations. The work arises from an interpretation of the neighborhood map, composed of different scenes of life in the district: the animation takes us for a walk on Corso Garibaldi, on top of a tram along Via Mercato, among the arcades of the Accademia, or aperitifs of via Moscova, evocative views that tell of a unique, stimulating and creative environment not only during the Fuorisalone.
