Design for a Better Tomorrow at Milan Design Week

April 11, 2024

One of the most anticipated events in the design industry, Milan Design Week is one of our favourite design events, and this year our design team will be heading to the 2024 edition promising to be even more spectacular than ever. 

Showcasing the latest trends, innovations, and creations in the design industry, we can see how Milan Design Week continues to push boundaries and inspire awe in each edition. This year expectations of cutting-edge technologies, sustainable designs, and immersive experiences that redefine the way we perceive design will be at the forefront as our fast-changing world engages in the effects of climate change.

Design for a Better Tomorrow

The theme for Milan Design Week 2024 is “Design for a Better Tomorrow” reflecting the growing importance of sustainability and environmental consciousness in the design industry. Our award-winning design team looks forward to viewing new designs in eco-friendly furniture and recycled materials, energy-efficient architecture, and smart cities.  As a major indicator of trends in design, Milan Design Week 2024 will demonstrate how design can be a powerful tool for positive change.

Into the Portal we go!

Highlighting Milan Design Week 2024 are the exhibitions of futuristic technologies and concepts. One highly anticipated installation is the ‘Thinking Room’ by filmmaker David Lynch. Visitors will follow a pathway through a series of Lynch’s films that Lynch creatively postulates as a portal into another dimension.

Our curiosity is piqued!

Brutalist for our Bottoms?

Over in the Porta Venezia Design District in the Palazzo del Senato the much-anticipated Formation 02 smart toilet by designer Samuel Ross for Kohler. Touted as more of a sculpture, we look forward to seeing the brutalist design intended for our bottoms!

A time to Think Different

Over at the Superstudio Piu, the theme Thinking Different will present adventurous and artistic designs directed by Gisella Borioli and Giulio Cappellini. We have our eyes ready to experience the glass design installation by Designblok Cosmos.

As our luxury interior design services have expanded internationally in the last couple of years to Los Angeles, N, Paris, and the French Riviera, we are focused on creating new international collaborations.

Milan Design Week offers our design team the best of interior design furniture, lighting, and fabric suppliers while providing real insight into industry trends and innovations.

A Mind and Body Approach in Color

As AI continues to evolve, this year is vital for designers to engage with all the new options that AI can provide. We are particularly fascinated to view Google’s Making Sense of Color Installation co-created by Google’s Vice President of Hardware Design, Ivy Ross, and her design team in collaboration with the arts + Chromasonic research lab.


Using Chromasonic Refrequencing which translates sound frequencies to light and light frequencies to sound, light is made audible and sound visible. What is interesting about this is that the 21 spaces are activated by a single source of light and spatialized sound. The guests experience a sensation of acute awareness of the connection between their body’s subtle movements and the movement of other people within the installation creating mind and body connection through light and sound. 

Opening the doors of two mansions

A must-see stop on everyone’s design week itinerary is the iconic Villa Borsani and Villa Bagatti Valsecchi where the contemporary design platform Alcova will present its 7th edition of “projects by designers, galleries, companies, institutions and schools in dialogue with extraordinary works of architecture”.

Alcova’s underlying theme of ‘living’ will challenge the visitor to consider the future of living within the aesthetic context of a historically rich yet surreal microcosm. Sort of like going back in time to your old self to connect with your future self.

We are looking forward to that conversation!

L’art de vivre

With our new projects in Paris, we are heading to see the editor of French wallcoverings and fabrics at the Casamance & Misia pop-up showroom in the Brera design district.


We have our eyes on Casamance’s timeless, noble materials and the variety of delicate textures such as their pride of their fluffy bouclette or 3D textures for spaces that require a bolder approach.

A dynamic duo pop-up with Misia’s haute couture textiles. These luxurious Italian fabrics will have our design team’s attention for our luxury renovation projects in Paris.

A showstopping showhouse

The quintessential epitome of Italian craftsmanship at L’Appartamento by Artemest will be fully dressed at the Showhouse in the stunning location of Milan’s 5Vie district at Residenza Vignale. Each room is curated by six interior design firms using Artemest’s renowned furniture, decor, and art sure to convey the authentic Italian craftsmanship we admire about Artemest products.

Artemest L’Appartamento

A romantic story at best, this mansion was built by a love-struck Austrian prince who wanted a Milan lifestyle.

As Artemest is one of our favorite suppliers we are excited to spend a moment in the thralls of beauty and Italian artistry: the kind of beauty that lured the prince to Milan. How fun!

The Light of A Thousand Landscapes

Inspired by a misty walk in October where Cristina Giopato and Christopher Coombes experienced being engulfed by the different planes of mist and light, the new Bruma collection in the gallery in Milan’s 5Vie district reflects the balance between density and absence.

Reminiscent of the mists that engulf London and Venice, the Bruma-A Thousand Landscapes installation is an evocative luminous composition of light excellence that Gipato & Coombes is noted for.

Their Flamingo Chandelier will also be present at Villa Borsani in the Alcova project.

Man the Maker

Touted as the Homo Faber (man the maker in Latin) of the design industry, Pietro Russo is an instinctual interior and product designer that explores deep conversations in art, geometry, light, science, and music out of his atelier in Milan.

Pietro Russo

The definition of Homo Faber is the human being as the maker or creator. Apropo to the definition Pietro translates his emotions with his hands into meticulously crafted unique pieces.

We love one-of-a-kind aspects of pieces that offer a story into the dialogue of the spaces we design.

Milan Design Week 2024 is set to be a milestone event in the world of design as it will give us a glimpse of where we are headed. Certainly, with its focus on sustainability, technology, inclusivity, and innovation, this edition will shape the future of design and inspire a new generation of designers.
