From April 14 to 19, Ventura Lambrate invites you to see what is happening in contemporary design. During the Salone del Mobile in Milan, a curated selection of over 176 exhibitors originating from 36 different countries will be on show.

Whether it’s explorations of new technologies and biological processes, prestigious installations and joint initiatives, mergings between disciplines, or academies’ exhibitions of research-based projects and design investigations, you can experience it at Ventura Lambrate 2015.

This edition there will be a special online shop, in collaboration with CROWDY HOUSE, where visitors can buy their favorite Ventura products. Other highlights include furniture that is self-assembling by Wood-Skin and MIT Self Assembly Lab and the launch of LABEL/BREED, a label that establishes collaborations between designers and manufacturers so they can share knowledge of the latest techniques and develop innovative products - participants include Christien Meindertsma and Studio Wieki Somers.

Never before were there so many academies present at Ventura Lambrate. The projects vary from thorough investigations about food consumption by Design Academy Eindhoven to explorations on how technology, science and craft can inform a better, more sustainable tomorrow by the Master ‘Material Futures’ of Central Saint Martins.

Special design reporters will stroll through the area capturing the coolest work and the atmosphere. The drawings, renderings and sketches that are created by the reporters are drawn by hand on the pages of Moleskine Notebooks and collected at a special documentation center.
