Nature Takes over Milan Design Week with Those 5 Projects
Milan Design Week Focuses on Nature, Time and Space
Art x Style 08 Jun 2022

Here we’re.

The Milano Design Week 2022 is starting and we expect seven days full of events, exhibitions and artworks around the city.

Along with the Salone del Mobile held in the Rho Fiera Milano, the city will be filled with colors, shapes and fragrances thanks to the FuoriSalone.

Nature is a major focus topic this year and we have  selected some of the most interesting exhibitions around flowers and nature from whom to get inspired during the “Between space and time” theme launched by the FuoriSalone.

The Art of Dreams at Palazzo Clerici


Porsche’s debut appearance at Milan Design Week is part of the brand’s series of immersive art initiatives “The Art of Dreams”. The automotive brand investigates the dream theme from the perspective of Ruby Barber, botanical artist and designer.

If you desire to walk on a new immersive and dreamlike world, you must go to Palazzo Clerici to discover Ruby’s surreal arrangements creating spaces between nature and architecture, between reality and dream.

Tips: enjoy a casual coffee seating on the artwork created by Alek O.!

Orto Botanico Brera

The Botanical Garden in Brera will host a project by CRA – Carlo Ratti Associati. The innovation and design firm with the Italian architect Italo Rota created Feeling The Energy, an interactive installation developed for Plenitude.

Following the Botanical Gardens’ structure, you could find 500 meters of anti-bacterial copper pipe to discover multiple forms of sustainable energy production and play with its effects. To have an interactive experience surrounded with sound, light, evaporative cooling.

Completing the fragments of nature

Around the Tortona District there will be a multi-participation project which involves Domus Academy and Tortona Design Week and also 45 students from the Master of Interior & Living Design, Urban Vision & Architectural Design, Interaction Design and Service Design, Product Design.

Have you ever seen a roundabout become an urban garden? That’s your chance!

Rethink the roundabout in Via Bergognone creating a virtual and physical installation, this innovative proposal shows through design the power that objects and spaces can give to create new values, redevelop and educate.

A new way of perceiving and using space to generate new habits will be suggested by a process of layering that nurtures coexistence between material and content. The designer Cristina Celestino redesigns Radaelli Fioraio, the historic flower boutique in via Manzoni in the Quadrilatero area of fashion.

A dialogue between nature and space, indoor and outdoor with poetic and magical reminiscences from an historical place frequented by Valentina Cortese, Maria Callas, and Grace Kelly. If you search for some inspo, step inside!

The architecture RIOS brings to Milan the extraordinary phenomenon of the flowering of Southern California. SuperBloom will be a journey inside the Design Week.

The visitors should have a multisensory experience through three rooms, the Rain Room, the Sprout Room and the Bloom Room.
