Ventura Lambrate 2015

Ventura Lambrate aspires to exhibit cross-disciplinary collaborations, processes and experiments that are part of the making of design projects, and fascinating conceptual ideas.

In this edition, the focus will be on the crossover between design and various areas of science and social progress. Ventura Lambrate will also provide a stage for the most interesting design–fashion hybrids. But it is also interested in hearing what ideas and subjects designers are working on, and what processes they are working with.

Ventura Lambrate give special call to design labels

This edition there will be a special call going out to brands and labels. Ventura Lambrate invites labels to present a thought-provoking project at the coming edition. The spacious industrial halls and elegant galleries of Ventura Lambrate are unique locations for stunning installations and revolutionary design ideas.

Because anything is possible at Ventura Lambrate, it functions as a stage for exceptionally creative projects and presentations of great impact.

Like Jaime Hayon framed it after exhibiting at Ventura Lambrate: "Ventura Lambrate felt really well. I honestly think I belong much more in this type of area than on the fair, especially because it is a place where there is much more space for research and conversation."
