30/03/2018 – Work in progress at Archiproducts Milano for a new ‘Design Experience’!

For the third time at the Milan Design Week, the design hotspot located at via Tortona 31, has made space for totally new collections of 70 international brands exclusively selected for the 2018 edition.

For the last two years, over 30.000 designers have visited the smart working, living and outdoor spaces of Archiproducts Milano, and starting from April 16th, they will finally discover the total new look of the co-net-working space in Zona Tortona.

 

This year’s setup has been taking shape thanks to both new as long-lasting collaborations where many different designers have been adding their personal touch. Elisa Ossino Studio, Studio Milo, Christophe De La Fontaine and Aylin Langreuter, Veronica Leali and Matt Lorrain have contributed to the space setup, each focusing on a different area, but all in full synergy with the Art Direction of Archiproducts Milano.

Within a unique play of colors, patterns and materials, the intimate spaces of this Tortona Hub will host numerous brands, architects, journalists and qualified visitors in a brand-new look. One of the new key elements of this year’s edition will be color, thanks to the collaboration with the German brand Caparol Icons and the young Danish brand File Under Pop, founded by Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer.

One single location for an ambitious project with multiple identities: urban installation, with a new façade pattern designed by Elisa Ossino Studio; exhibition itinerary, throughout the 14 rooms of the enchanting early 20th century apartment, with open terraces, decorated ceilings and ancient oak and herringbone-patterned floors; and digital interactions, revealing every detail of the several collections that bring new color to the 2018 look of Archiproducts Milano.

This shared partnership continues to grow hence the 2018 setup has united over 70 brands from all around the world!

Some brands have been part since the very first beginning of Archiproducts Milano and have already reconfirmed this year’s collaboration: DesaltoSabaVeluxBticinoFlosSp01RoofingreenKriskadecor and Vibia.
