Milan Design Week: the biggest

For about 15 years, in various cities, not necessarily major metropolises, events revolving around design have sprung up, inspired by Milan Design Week, the mother of all design weeks. The Milan Design Week arose spontaneously, from below, as a sum of side events to the Salone del Mobile. Until the late 1980s of the current century, Milan Design Week did not exist. There was Salone del Mobile, the third week of September. September is still summer in Milan, but the weather is warmer and more pleasant than July, so it’s a good moment for outdoor evening events.

After that, Nomad has traveled to Palazzo Soranzo Van Axel in Venice, Palais Bulles in Théoule-sur-Mer, and Chesa Planta in Sankt Moritz.

Design Post, in Cologne, is not quite an event. In fact, it is a permanent showroom, which comes alive at certain, particularly representative trade fairs. Design Post is located at Deutz-Mülheimer-Strasse 22a in Cologne, so exactly opposite the halls of Koelnmesse. This is a forward-looking location that allows companies to have a permanent showroom, and attract trade fair visitors to the adjacent halls. In addition, Design Post, carved out of a Post Office building, is a particularly striking and attractive location with post-industrial architecture.
