Pioneer event VENICE DESIGN is the largest International Design exhibition running alongside La Biennale di Venezia. From May 26th to November 25th 2018, the third consecutive edition of VENICE DESIGN will again be hosted by the European Cultural Centre. In the historical location of Palazzo Michiel, facing the Grand Canal, international Designers invade the venue to express themselves and to propose a singular reflexion on materialising, shaping and transforming our daily environment. Design will show its ongoing connection between body, object and space challenging the visitors to interact with pieces and immersive installations.
Around 50 international creators from 30 different countries and of various cultural backgrounds are invited to present their processes and visions towards Design. Constellations of creators will shine a light on the meaning of conceiving and producing our forthcoming living spheres through conscious designs, innovative objects and experiential installations. Through their social and ethical processes, some invited Designers are raising a collective awareness leading to significant statements. While a few reflect upon innovative approaches towards shaping and re-thinking materiality, others will offer physical experiences. Palazzo Michiel becomes a vibrating space where interdisciplinary Design inspires and stimulates curiosity. The body as a structural architecture and a performative element at the core of those initiatives will reconnect with its interactivity.
As an international platform, VENICE DESIGN will travel to Mexico City, thanks to its first collaboration with Archivo, Architecture & Design Museum for the occasion of World Design Capital 2018. In addition, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Coalesce x Antidote participating as the first National Pavillon of Pakistan.
Invariably connected to its local roots, VENICE DESIGN thanks to its city map will allow its visitors to wander around the city to discover 40 independent craftsmen living and working in Venice.
