Fuorisalone 2017: this year is the first edition of Isola Design District.

Isola is a trendy area in Milan. The new urban interventions, such as the residential complex of the Bosco Verticale, gave new impetus to the area where you can find beautiful restaurants, shops and cafes. One thing hasn’t changed: the atmosphere of the old Milan, the one with small shops, factories, workshops and laboratories.

Obstacles and Solutions by Source
Frida, via Antonio Pollaiuolo 3

An interesting research about obstacles that the designer encounter during the realization of an object. Through broken prototypes the exhibition wants to tell all about difficulties that the designer had to face.

“The quality of the project gets better when the obstacles are greater” Achille Castiglioni.
