Curated by The Design Blender, the collective project is a creative forge between design, art and experimentation.

On the occasion of the upcoming Milan Design Week, the second edition of the LABÒ project, curated by The Design Blender, will kick off in the Barona district. The industrial spaces of SPA - Società Prodotti Antibiotici - and Fondazione Rodolfo Ferrari will host a new selection of international designers, artists, art galleries and companies from 15 to 18 April 2024.

The Design Blender, a curatorial duo made up of Elsa Lemarignier and François Leblanc di Cicilia, will present - in the compound at Via Biella 6 - a new exhibition that investigates luxe de création, matter and its processing, through collectors' and premium design pieces that are the result of the use of advanced craftsmanship or industrial techniques.

Inspired by the essence of the place, which has been devoted to medical research for over seventy years, LABÒ is configured as a forge that fosters creativity, a crossroads where design, art and experimentation converge to present innovative and surprising results. The laboratory is the distinctive theme of the project: the physical space in which visitors will be welcomed along the route and the conceptual space of a creative exploration that takes shape in the exhibition.

The location, which opens to the public on the occasion of the event, guides the visitor with its authenticity and expressive force: four buildings located like a small industrial village, consisting of the pharmaceutical laboratories, the company cral and the warehouses, become an exceptional stage backdrop, dialoguing with the projects on display.

"This second edition of LABÒ represents a new challenge for us. Our aim is to create connections between the creatives and companies involved with the design and art community: an exchange from which unexpected results arise" says The Design Blender.
