In April we head to the design world's most important and most sprawling jamboree, taking in the Salone Internazionale del Mobile trade fair plus hundreds of design events across the city.
We'll be checking out work by young designers at the Ventura Lambrate and Tortona Design Week districts, finding hot new products from upcoming brands at Designjunction and MOST, and exploring the galleries, showrooms and courtyards of the central Brera district.
We'll also be filming interviews at our dedicated studio to identify and examine the latest issues and obsessions firing design industry and culture.
