For those who missed the live streaming, here's the video where Ada Tolla and Giuseppe Lignano take us on a live tour to explore LOT-EK, international architecture studio based in New York.
The next event is planned in september with a special surprise...

“An Italian (Architect) in...” is a series of meetings, carried out by Matrix4Design in partnership with Superstudio Group.


Forget the annus horribilis that has haunted us so far and, like the kids coming back to school, consider September the beginning of a new cycle of our life and our work.

Perhaps only this attitude can give us a positive restart, aware that among the many risks that we run every day since we were born, there is also this, the evil Covid-19, and we must live with it. Let us therefore enter the next few months with optimism, hope, awareness, as if it were another year, another decade, another century, another future where nothing will be as it was before and many broken pieces may, perhaps, fall into place...


Dear customers, dear visitors, dear friends, 

today, in the world, 3.9 billion people are under lock down and struggling with some form of restriction on their lives. In this suspended time, where everything seems immobile and nothing has certainty or definition, we are committed to imagine a future for the world of events and also for us. Many things will change, there will be different ways and uses and different way of living experiences: for this, for you (and for us) we will take the opportunity to review what our work represents to us. The damages of virus will impact our economies and it will take some time to return to normality. The key issue is to avoid new infections and to prevent the virus from spreading again and nullifying the efforts made. For the foreseeable future, this will be the priority of all societies in the world... 

It is the award that Italian event-industry looks forward to all year long.

The history of forty years of the Milanese Superstudio, progressing at the same pace as the city change, often anticipating it, has been presented at the Triennale. In a space filled with personalities and guests, with greeting by the President of Triennale Stefano Boeri and speeches by the council members of the Municipality of Milan Cristina Tajani and Pierfrancesco Maran, the video-story described the transition of the culture and the art from the centre to the suburbs, that became, thanks to Superstudio, the new centre. So much mystery, hopes, and expectations in the change of decade of the current century: will the forthcoming years be the “belle époque” of the new millennium? The question opens an unknown world that will revolutionize our lives. Will adults of the ‘900 be unable to dialogue with digital natives, will the ju..
Forty years ago that was not the Tortona District, but an industrial inner suburb of Milan of the first Superstudio founded by the journalists-editors couple Flavio Lucchini and Gisella Borioli (later on, after the exit of business partner Fabrizio Ferri, renamed Superstudio 13) that had as mission the image of fashion with photographic studios and all connected services. Twenty years after, a few steps away, Superstudio Più is born, a cultural/commercial hub open to fashion, design, art, innovation, the first of its kind in the city. Twenty years later, the third twenty years period of activity, responding to the creative need of the city, takes up the challenge of Milan 2030 including the suburbs, supported by the Mayor Sala and the local administration. 2020 will be year 0 of Superstudio Maxi, the new location that will be add..
From conventions to presentations, from meetings to entertainment, from gala dinners to educational and cultural moments, organising business events is by now an essential factor for companies that want to retain its staff and strengthen its presence on the market. The world of events, indeed went through an exponential growth in the last few years. 42% of the companies invest at least 20% of their budget on events communication. And events with a significant number of participants coming from abroad have come from 9,1% up to 9.9%. The numbers continue to grow. Indicators are all a positive sign. In fact, just in 2018, in Italy 400 thousand among conventions and events have been created, over 2.9% compared to 2017. Data from “Osservatorio Italiano dei Congressi e degli Eventi”. Milan, in addition to being the undisputable Italian capi..

Next to the Minister, in the photo, Brenda Bellei Bizzi, Chief Executive Officer of M.Seventy and soul of White Show, the important contemporary fashion fair hosted at Superstudio Più and protagonist of the Milanese design weeks.

If Milan has become the first example of city where fashion determines character, design is a global phenomenon, creativity talks the languages of the world, urban fabric is spotted with temporary-locations and the Fuorisalone has become a model imitated in many capitals, maybe thanks a bit to destiny, in addition to its illuminated pioneers. This is, at least what Flavio Lucchini claims, founder and president of Superstudio Group, but also editor and artist, protagonists of the creative Milan since 1960, whose yesterday’s choices have contributed to the Milan of today. This is what Lucchini describes, as author, in his last book “IL DESTINO – dovevo fare il contadino ma ho incontrato la moda (e non sono uno stilista)”, a first person path through the golden years of fashion and the encountering with great fashion designers, intellectuals, well-known photographers, artists of the time, social revolutions. How and why are born from his background as journalist and art-director, Superstudio 13 large hub for photography and fashion image, Superstudio Più for design, creativity, innovation, big events.

Interview with Councilor Cristina Tajani.If Milan has become the most attractive city in Europe in such short time, it is also thanks to who governs it with new spirit. Among these, the council member for Fashion, Design and Productive Activities Cristina Tajani, a young competent and passionate woman that revitalised the city.A Miracle happened: Milano pre-Expo was experienced as a static city, even a bit boring. Today, it is considered Europe’s most exciting capital and touristic and creative destination where everybody wants to come. How did this happen in such short time? I think aiming on an open schedule of quality events for different public, built in synergy with private citizens has been the winning decision: it has pushed the image of Milan towards a city open to the world, rich in culture, art, sociality. The week-events are ..
In Milan, Superstudio indicates an iconic place, actually two, that taxi drivers have known, by heart for years. The name, chosen as a tribute to the namesake Avant guard group of architects of the 70’s by the founders Gisella Borioli and Flavio Lucchini, points at Superstudio 13 the first hub for fashion photography and image created in 1983, and at the nearby Superstudio Più, the great centre for innovative events open in 2000. Thirty-five years after the first centre dedicated to creativity, Superstudio Group looks ahead with innovations both in its own and related companies’ activities, renovates the organisation, the offer and the team. A few examples? Art and community merge in the new “Fondazione Flavio Lucchini” project, NPO that will manage Lucchini’s art works heritage with the aim to encourage “special needs” you..

Coming in the Middle East with your Temporary Museum what expectations would you have of the region?I think the Middle East market, after so many economic, architectural and cultural progresses, is now ready to appreciate the most innovative and smart design, which values quality and research, not only evident luxury. I personally witnessed, in the last seven years, an improvement in taste both in the field of arts and design, adding new values to an increasingly mature region.Why did you decide to participate in the Downtown Design event?First, it has been love. I fell in love with Dubai since the first time I visited it, in 2006. I was struck by its history, its energy, its courage, the mix of nationalities, ethnicities, religions, cultures, the Oriental-Occidental lifestyle, the re-spect for tradition coexisting with the future visi..
