This Week From The Editor

The hangover of Milan persists in our veins, as creative spirits rage through our blood, inspiring and inquiring. As a destination that embraces diversity, it has become a valuable glossary of design, identifying and exposing design trends. But what does it mean in the grand scheme of things?

Congregation. Culture. Commerce. Creativity.

A city that transforms ideas into being. This convergence of people and creativity is essential. It bleeds into the language of design, ever-evolving & thriving. It is as crucial as the final output, neither preceding the other.

Our newsletter this time is not a goodbye to Milan, but an enduring attempt to understand the global impact of such creatively charged epicentres. With Milan Design Week’s ongoing role in establishing contiguity between ideas, insight, and results, of remodelling boundaries of ingenuity, we bring to you projects and opinions that journey through cultures, time and people, to congregate as creative focal points.

The spectacle of Architecture

The story of swagger buildings and the impact of "experience architecture".
