With Brera Design Week the coolest neighborhood in the city returns to breathe the air of renewal after two years of pandemics and closures. And it does so thanks to the theme chosen for this year, namely “Designing the present, choosing the future”, expressed by the main theme of Fuori Salone “Between space and time”.
The district will welcome contemporary themes with a view to tomorrow’s challenges thanks to over 160 events signed by internationally renowned designers who will propose the best of their ideas on the subject. The project is signed by Studiolabo, agency and creative studio, while the sponsor of the 2022 edition is Porsche, also the creator of The Art of Dreams event.
