INAUGURATION: Thursday 16th April 2015
For the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, VIA and 14 September present the third edition of France Design, French design talent in Milan from 14th to 19th April 2015. Nearly seventy products and prototypes that reflect the diversity and dynamism of French design.
At Ex-Ansaldo, in the heart of the Tortona quarter, France Design brings together two major exhibitions, as well as the Café Intramuros event.
VIA DESIGN 2015 presents 14 furniture, lighting and planning prototypes financed by VIA and designed by twelve emerging designers : fourteen projects looking for a producer. Focus on VIA’s Carte Blanche, awarded to Normal Studio : the prospective project Atmosphères offers a non-standardised approach to comfort.
Talents & Economy offers a large panorama made up of around sixty new every day products from a number of different sectors (sports and leisure, decoration, high-tech). These pieces, by major French brands and talents, show the importance of design in value creation, whether it is functional, aesthetic or emotional. This exposition is organised with financial support from the Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Digital Affairs, APCI (Agency for the Promotion of Industrial Creation) and Lieu du Design, with the collaboration of IFD (French Institute of Design), Aquitaine Développement Innovation/Prospective Design, Design’In Pays de la Loire, Cité du Design Saint-Etienne, and Lille Design.
Remember, Tolix will celebrate 80 years of the emblematic Chaise A with the exposition Face-to-Face With an Icon.
