3-9 April 2017

An eco-design itinerary is what is proposed this year in the sixteenth edition of Green Island, during the Milano Design Week (3-9 April 2017). The central focus is the Isola Neighbourhood, an area undergoing major cultural and urban expansion, presented in three stages, investigating the ‘plant sculptures’ by the artist EMILIA FARO.

The starting point is Garibaldi Train Station with a project staged in the shop windows of TIGER; then in via Pepe at the famous Algranti Lab, where the recycled materials are a ‘must-have’ for lovers of skilfully created furniture; right up to the heart of the event at the RIVA VIVA eco-furnishings showroom in Via Porro Lambertenghi, which will feature a new installation recreating a natural botanic garden, designed especially for the occasion. In fact, BOTANIK is the name given to the artistic project proposed by Claudia Zanfi, the real ‘green soul’ behind the Milano Design Week in Isola District. Attached: Press Release + Daily Program.
