April is the Milan Design Week month. Waiting for Fuorisalone in September, the city and all design protagonists are strongly coming back into the limelight thanks to the second edition of Milan Design City. Superstudio is there with CULT&MUST, an event that will see its physical edition as soon as possible in synergy with a group of great design companies, daring to live actively with the present moment. The goal is to give voice to the design world, to keep design in the foreground and to begin a journey among a selection of objects of desire that have entered our daily lives.

CULT&MUST 2000/2020 is an act of love for design and designers that from 2000 to 2020 have marked the international scene by creating solutions, objects, furniture, decorations capable to affect our lives, gestures and to have an impact on everyday-life aesthetics, perception of domestic environments and social spaces...

Just arrived in Italy it also created a “Materials Village” during the Milan Design Week for the last five editions at Superstudio. Emilio Genovesi, CEO of Materially and, first, of Material ConneXion Italia, tells us about it.

Material ConneXion, with its library of materials, with its presentations first at the Triennale and then at Superstudio, also represented in Italy an important step in the knowledge and enhancement of materials for architecture and design. How did it become part of the Salone and Fuorisalone circuit?
