Design City Milan (0470026839) cover image
London, New York, Paris, Milan … The very mention of Milan by name evokes modern design, elegance and luxury. Milan is without a doubt the most influential city in the world in terms of design and it intends to stay that way. The Milanese’s unique flair for combining commerce with a respect for good design has made it a must-do show venue for premier fashion and product designers, as well as the site of the world’s most prestigious furniture fair.

With the new millennium Milan has entered one of the most exciting periods of its urban development. Alongside interventions on a large scale, like the stunning new Milan Trade Fair by Massimiliano Fuksas and the Santa Giulia Apartments by Foster and Partners, Milan is also rediscovering its natural talent for interior design in a number of innovative projects.

It is precisely this renewed energy that Design City Milan evokes by showcasing 40 of the most recent interior design projects: gems of understated elegance, such as the Hotel Bulgari by Antonio Citterio and the Prada shop in the Galleria; new concept, lifestyle stores like 10 Corso Como and 11 Store; contemporary dining spaces like Shu and Maru; truly luxurious relaxing zones like the spas designed for Culti and Ferré; cultural strongholds like the Bocconi University and the new headquarters of Abitare; revolutionary premises such as the Hotel Nhow and Gold, the new restaurant by Dolce & Gabbana; more intimate and private spaces, like the residences of Fabio Novembre and Mario Bellini...
