The occasion of Dubai Design Week, with the 15th Downtown Design, which has become the most important and influential event in the Middle East region, coincides with the opening of Istituto Marangoni in Dubai, which is already present in Paris, London, Florence, and Abu Dhabi in addition to Milan. It will bring its "specialties": fashion, design, image with the usual very high level of teaching and state-of-the-art facilities and a programming that takes into account the needs of the country in which it fits in as well as from an international perspective. Kicking off the new under- and post-graduate institution will be a face-to-face discussion with students and a talk addressing topical issues capable of disrupting the design world but not only.
They will talk about NFT, Mixed Reality, A.I., dematerialization, the relationship between Milan and Dubai with a focus on design and more. The protagonists will be Giulio Cappellini, architect and famous art-director consultant of the most prestigious companies (including Marangoni and Superstudio) and Gisella Borioli, founder and creative director of Superstudio Group, the first and largest "system" of hubs for the needs of creativity with four locations in the city and the main exhibition hub of Fuorisalone during Milan Design Week. Elena Marinoni, education director of Istituto Marangoni Dubai, will moderate the meeting. In the city of the future, young "expats" arrived from all over the world and local students will design the future together. In a collaboration with no more cultural boundaries.
