Leading International Design Events 2017 You Cannot Miss – The next two months bring three extremely relevant and international design events that I am sure you don’t want to miss. With that in consideration, Best Design Projects prepared this guide with the following events, so that you can plan your trips on time.
First of all, we have Architectural Digest Show – AD Show – set to occur from 16th to 19th March. This event is the essential showcase for luxury design, all in one place, at Piers 92 & 94 in New York City. With the motto “4 days. 400 brands. Countless ways to celebrate design.” and in its 16th year, ADShow opens doors to the world’s leading brands along with today’s top talent that come together in a carefully curated presentation of design, offering inspired vignettes by respected brands, design seminars, culinary demonstrations, and special appearances. From furniture, accessories, lighting, and art to kitchen, bath, and building projects, the show offers thousands of products to source and shop—both from independent makers and established manufacturers.
BaselWorld 2017 is scheduled to happen also in March, from the 23rd to the 30th in Switzerland. Baselworld is the most important marketplace and trendsetting show for the world’s watch and jewellery industry. Baselworld distinguishes itself as the only show that regroups all the key players from watchmakers to jewellers, from diamonds, pearls and gemstones dealers through to machines and supply industry.
From 4th to 9th April 2017, Milan will be the stage for the 56th Edition of Milan Design Week, the most important event in the world related to the topic of design. Hosting more than 2,400 exhibitors, a display area of more than 270,000 square meters and thousands of new products premiered at the event, Salone del Mobile (once known as I Saloni) is the benchmark trade fair on an international level, attracting more than 372,000 visitors from as many as 165 countries.
Milan Design Week is defined by Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone, announcing the ultimate trends for the forthcoming year and featuring a series of events, exhibitions and presentations. Fuorisalone is the set of events and exhibitions that animate the entire city of Milan, featuring longer opening hours.
During Milan Design Week, many important brands located in the design districts introduce their new collections and host special events with live music and entertainment for a must-visit celebration.
Although the events happen throughout the entire city, the Fuorisalone implies three main districts: Brera, (Brera Design District), Tortona (Tortona Design) and Lambrate (Ventura Lambrate). Meet some of the most distinguishing exhibitors that you can find in each district.
Among the several luxury design brands that will be showcasing in these events, you will find Covet House featuring high-end renowned brands such as Boca do Lobo, Brabbu, Delightfull, Koket, Maison Valentina, Essential Home, Circu and Luxxu.
