Among the many messages of appreciation that we jealously guard in our laptops, the one written by a young visitor struck us most. We would like to share it here and express our gratitude for her kind words. Anticipating that…metaverse is already on our agenda! "Superstudio never disappoints, as usual. I have been attending the Fuorisalone for almost 8/9 years, at its inception I was just a college student eager to fill her eyes with "beautiful things". In the early years, via Tortona led the Milan Design Week, with Superstudio as its focal point. I also remember the endless line over the steel bridge…I am now a graphic designer, and for me the Fuorisalone and Superstudio are both synonyms of inspiration and creativity. I have seen the event change a lot over the years: its sprawl throughout the whole city of Milan has its pros and cons (like a partial emptying...

A resurgent Milan Design Week 2022 concluded with a bang, probably exceeding expectations given all the difficulties that pandemic, war and impossible journeys caused preventing a part of the world from travelling to the city. Milan is, as always, the undisputed capital of international design, with over 800 events. While the general numbers, those stated by Rho Fiera Salone, are only half of the miraculous year of 2019, so are the city events, communicated based on abstract restrictions.
Superstudio Più has for years been able to collect data and certificates for its Superdesign Show through mandatory registration, which, like at the Fiera...

Trees located at the entrance of the Superdesign Show mark the sections in which the “Looking Ahead” project is divided. Six stylized blue trees designed by Giulio Cappellini and treated by Sonja Quarone as "ad artem" stand out as unique pieces that signal and invite visitors to enter the show without getting lost along the rich path of this edition. Resin provided by Gobbetto is applied to the wood, which creates a surface with a multitude of shades and reliefs.

Looking Ahead: this was the general theme conceived, months back, to indicate the direction of the next edition of Superstudio’s Superdesign Show during Design Week 2022. As if to distance us from the convictions of many: “Everything will return as before” and predicting that the future will actually be reformulated in all of its expressions, we’ve invited interesting designers and companies to attend our event and align with our glimpsing “beyond”. To be able to explore unknown territory, to anticipate needs and trends, translate the word “sustainability” – the common term connecting everything – into concrete proposals, and redesign our lives which have become unexpectedly more complicated... 

The occasion of Design Week 2022, assigned by the pandemic to this year’s anomalous date, rendered even more uncertain by the war in Ukraine, makes the date with design a moment of optimism which aims to repair the social, commercial and productive fabric in a positive manner. The latest edition of Superdesign confirms the creative direction of Gisella Borioli and the art direction of Giulio Cappellini, who have made the Superdesign Show prestigious and unmissable ever since the first edition in 2000, and all of its iterations in the years following...

This year we return to the theme of women’s creativity: 12 + 21 authors present their “creative self-portrait” in the language that is most natural to them, the design and ideas that enrich our everyday environments...

For archistar Paola Navone is ‘Poetry House’, a house for imagination that is all to be imagined, on the ceramic rugs by ABK Ceramiche; for the award-winning Ilaria Marelli is the bench-fire pit for Steeles: minimalist and elegant design, with a surface perforated by endless holes to suggest an interplay between fullness and emptiness. For the 21 artists and artisans and the three curators Caterina Misuraca, Sandra Faggiano e Valentina Martin of the Food Design Stories group is the set table, both ethical concerning the materials and process, and aesthetical for the flowers and clouds fluctuating mid-air. Along them, in a sort of design mirror that confronts each author with her latest creation, Ana Marìa Gomez, Colombian designer, who with “Oruga” proposes furniture nomadism...
