The Brera Design District is always among the areas not to be missed. Here the most famous brands, super installations and beautiful locations.
Brera Design District in 11 locations
Palazzo Clerici, via Clerici 5
Probably this is the event that I liked most of this Fuorisalone, totally recommended!
I love when contemporary design is is hosted in ancient and prestigious locations. The simple and minimal lines of Nordic design meet gold and frescoes in this wonderful Milanese palace.
There is also a pop-up store… where you will spend all your money!
Circolo Filologico milanese, via Clerici 10
An exhibition with the irreverent and funny lighting creations of the Swiss designer Ingo Maurer.
La Posteria, via Sacchi 5/7
Quite a magical installation: a room full of Bohemian crystal spheres, where blowing in spreads the light! Yes, it seems impossible but that’s it!
Not to be missed!
MT masking tape
Spazio Brera, via Ciovasso 17
Washi tape everywhere and even a mini pop-up store!
Accademia di Brera/Orto Botanico
via Brera 28
In the main courtyard the mega installation by Panasonic, unfortunately there is always a lot of queue (we talk about hours of waiting…).
In the Orto Botanico, the light boxes installation of the SmarTown by Hive for the Interni, House in Motion event.
Chiostro di San Simpliciano, piazza Paolo VI, 6
The Norwegian design in the beautiful cloister of San Simpliciano.
La Pelota, via Palermo 10
A huge yellow platform with all the Vitra icons. There is also the Vitra Design Museum corner, the bar/café and a pop-up store.
via Solferino 11
The courtyard of Via Solferino 11 is one of the most beautiful in the district, here there is the Boffi showroom, Paola C. gallery and several other exhibitions. Dimorestudio splits in 3: on the second floor of both staircases and also in via Solferino 22.
Long queue expected. Do you have to choose one of the two installation? Choose the on on the left staircase!
via Statuto 8
Beautiful palace and apartment (I think this is the first time they open it during the Fuorisalone) where to see the new collection of the Swedish brand.
Hemma – Swedish design moves to Milan
via Eugenio Balzan 4
Nordic design seems to have occupied the entire Brera Design District! (Photo Mattia Buffo).
Mediateca di Santa Teresa, via della Moscova 28
The Wallpaper magazine exhibition this year is dedicated to wellness. Have a coffee at the Lavazza café designed by Toilet Paper. You can find also the Disco Gufram! This year the clubs and the 70s keep coming back to the various events! There must be something in the air!
Tram Corallo: sold out! It is no longer possible to book tickets, you can only spot it through the streets of Brera.
