Whether in Milan, Brussels or London, now is the time to get your tickets for this fall's hottest design events.
After almost two years of tough times for trade shows, events in the design world are now getting back on track. And it's about time.
The 15th edition of Design Miami/Basel, the return of the London Design Festival and a special version of Milan's Salone del Mobile are just a few of the many events not to be missed in September.
There's also Vienna Design Week, Design China Beijing and Maison et Objet in Paris.
Alongside these much-missed shows, other architecture and design events will be taking place in Amsterdam, for example, with What Design Can Do Live.
This event will explore the themes of climate change and justice through a programme of lectures. Note too, that the industrial designer Marc Newson will lead a conference on hyperconnectivity at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.
Here are three hot design events to catch this fall.
Milan Design Week is the name that encompasses the largest annual design gathering in the world.
It includes Milan's major furniture fair, the Salone del Mobile – which this year lands in a special Supersalone edition curated by Stefano Boeri – as well as hundreds of fringe events in and around the city, in what's known locally as the "fuorisalone".
Several neighbourhoods will feature installations and exhibitions highlighting emerging and established brands, designers and studios.
Copenhagen's annual design festival, 3 Days of Design, will host shows, workshops and conferences in 200 showrooms and exhibition spaces around the city.
Expect to see plenty of Danish design on show, with products and concepts in the fields of brands, lifestyle, lighting, furniture and interior design.
This year, the Danish home furnishings brand Vipp will launch the "Vipp Pencil Factory", staging pop-up supper clubs in a former Viking pencil factory in Copenhagen. What better way to link design with dining?
The London Design Festival is set to be held in the British capital for the 19th time. Featuring a mix of more than 200 digital and real-world events, the festival will present installations and exhibitions by well-known and lesser-known artists, designers and architects.
The events will be spread across several venues, all within walking distance of each other, in what the festival calls "design districts".
The V&A Museum will host a series of installations and exhibitions exploring design's relation to climate change, including a collaboration between the mixed reality studio Tin Drum and the Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto. – AFP Relaxnews
