As female empowerment grows in important cultural fields, from politics to science, and in key positions within companies and societies, Superstudio continues to shed light on their strength and vision in the areas of art, architecture, project, and design. Therefore, Superstudio invites female architects and designers to take part in DONNE & DESIGN, a special event held during the Superdesign Show 2022...

This September the Milan Design Week ended with a great number of people visiting Superstudio Più, 35.781 to be precise. These are important numbers that tell us more than a thousand words. Indeed, they prove to be a positive response to those who strongly wanted this edition, reminding the whole world of the strength and appeal of Italian design and its international capital, Milan. ISS Facility services took part in the Superdesign Show 2021 Special Edition, supporting the DONNE&DESIGN exhibition, conceived by Gisella Borioli, founder of Superstudio, and curated by Silvana Annichiarico. A first collaboration focused on a very topical issue and realized along with an important educational reality in Italy, the IULM University. ISS, a leading company in the service sector, tells us the reasons for its commitment to equality and inclusion through the words of its head of marketing activities for ISS, Nicolò Abbate.

ALESSI: MUSEUM WOMEN

The visionary position of Alessi that has made the art of the table and small everyday objects popular tools of culture and pleasure, starting from the famous oil mill by Ettore Sottsass, is once again a forerunner in the numerous collaborations with female designers. Founded in 1921 (one hundred years ago!) it opened its museum in 1998, where objects, projects and documents converge, making its very original story, always avant-garde. Today it also celebrates with this collection of 18/10 steel objects created by eleven famous designers and not: they tell the attention, irony, the quality reserved for everything, that if signed by Alessi, it is never already seen or banal...

MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2021 - SUPERSTUDIO PIU’

DONNE&DESIGN: FROM MINIMUM PROJECTS TO MAXIMUM ASPIRATIONS

A long roundup to find out where creativity goes through 20 selected international designers, over the other 11 already represented in the Alessi Museum and now at Superstudio. Also a proper tribute to 12 great architects, who have made the history of design and who are recently disappeared, will take place.

Compared to even a few years ago, the presence of women in the field of design has changed both in terms of quantity, because women are many more, both in terms of quality, because they are more aware of their role within a traditionally masculine discipline such as design. On some issues, such as sustainability, or reuse design, women are in the front row. They have a cosmopolitan vision, they talk to the world, they know no borders and they are very quick to identify the emerging problems that design can and must try to answer...

Among the main themes hosted during the next Milan Design Week 2021, we highlight the flagship event D&D – Donne & Design, aligned to the recognition of the value of Women’s creativity in many fields and, particularly, in design, architecture, art, where well-known names and less-known but very talented protagonists excel.
In a group exhibition organized in individual areas, Women will be in the foreground, with their stories, their careers, their recent projects and of course with evidence of the companies they collaborate with and that support their attendance to the exhibition.
A shared, high-impact exhibition, a specific communication campaign, a broad-spectrum media coverage, btob and btoc moments of meeting, talks and physical and digital specific presentations and much more will be the frame of the event...

Architect, curator, professor at the Politecnico di Milano, editorial director but above all, since 1998, Design permanent collection Curator at Triennale Museum in Milan and Director of the first city Design Museum, designed by Michele De Lucchi, where she remains until 2019. In 2016 she opened up a window on female creativity with “W. Women in Italian Design" exhibition. Who better than her can tell us about Donne & Design?

You were director of the first Design Museum in Milan. A very important role for a woman 13 years ago. How did you get there?
Thank you for remembering it: the first Design Museum in Italy was founded in Milan in 2007 and for 11 years it has investigated Italian design's history starting from different questions and doubts, because there is no official, clear and universally shared design history...
