The next edition of Din – Design In will be attended, among others, by entities such as LASALLE – College of the Arts in Singapore, High Society, innovative South Tyrolean studio that will present lamps and furnishing accessories resulting from upcycling activities focused in particular on the recovery of waste materials from the beer and coffee industries and the MASAYA by Asian Collection brand that will exhibit its special brass furnishings, whose production phases, from sculpture to casting to polishing, are entirely handmade. The presence of an area of approximately 300 square meters dedicated to the temporary shop with contemporary jewellery creations selected by Artistarjewels.com is also confirmed for 2020, also within Din – Design In.
The location of Via Conte Rosso 34 – corner Via Ventura is renewed as a hub for numerous workshops on sustainability and upcycling. Right there, in 2019, a series of activities took place to support the launch of Trash2Treasure, an online platform aimed at connecting companies – those who produce waste – with creatives, like designers, who are able to give new life to what would otherwise remain a waste. The project was born from the collaboration between Cosnova Gmbh, a German make-up manufacturer, and the Latvian design agency Age5.
Even the iconic art galleries of Via Massimiano will come alive hosting international brands and design companies, which will present cutting-edge products and projects during Fuorisalone 2020.
