Dezeen is co-hosting a series of events, talks and parties as part of Milan design week 2017, with architects and designers including OMA, Assemble, Jaime Hayon and SO-IL, and brands including IKEA and MINI.
The biggest event in the international design calendar, Milan design week takes over the Italian city for one week every year – and Dezeen is here to show you around!
We will be involved in events throughout the week, and as well as collaborations with IKEA and MINI, we've also teamed up with Fritz Hansen and Delta Light.
In addition, we are media partners for major design district Ventura Lambrate, all-new venue Ventura Centrale and Design Academy Eindhoven's #TVclerici, an exhibition bringing together digital, analogue and augmented realities.
All visitors are encouraged to tag their Instagram pictures with the #milanogram2017 hashtag for a chance to win £500 to spend at Dezeen Watch Store.
