Fuorisalone Digital Edition: what you need to know

News, Milan — 09 April 2021

Here we are, as anticipated, from Monday 12 April the Fuorisalone comes back, for the second consecutive year, in digital format during Milano Design City, presenting product previews, round tables, virtual events, webinars and much more.
The event will anticipate the appointment scheduled from 4 to 10 September, on which all Fuorisalone operators are working to confirm Milan as the capital of design, an international reference point.

The theme of the 2021 edition, supported by the main partners Hyundai and Rado, is "Forms of Living", an opportunity for discussion and debate on living needs and domestic spaces, which have become increasingly central to our lives over the past year. We will also talk about the environment and urban transformations, but also about relationships and how they are changing at this particular historical moment.

The program of talks and webinars

Among the appointments scheduled from 12 April, available on demand on Fuorisalone TV, there are two talks hosted by Il Salotto di Milano: the first one is about the changes taking place in the world of contemporary art and design, the second one is dedicated to the
showroom of the future, a transversal topic that affects all sectors, and that for furniture-design as well as for fashion, becomes central.

Not to be missed the cycle of 11 talks proposed by Strategy Innovation, the spin-off of Ca'Foscari, dedicated to the theme of domestic living declined in its various environments, from the living area to the sleeping area, through the outdoors.

Lombardini22, a leading group in the Italian architecture and engineering scenario, proposes a series of meetings dedicated to the design of the building envelope, the commercial retail space and the workspace, between functionality, customisation, flexibility and multifunctionality.

Phyd, the phygital venture of The Adecco Group, presents three appointments: a discussion with the designer Paola Navone, a meeting dedicated to the relationship between training and the labour market applied to design and a speech by Amleto Picerno Ceraso, architect and CEO of MEDAARCH, on the "New prospects offered by digital technology in the field of design and architecture"

Teva presents a talk entitled "Teva for you. When design is at the service of healthcare," an event dedicated to design thinking applied to the pharmaceutical sector.
