6 FEDERLEGNOThe Italian system of “LegnoArredamento” is characterized by a complex of productions that are very open towards the export, an high intensity of innovation and design; these productions are largely located in the industrial districts.The system is characterized by a strong link with the world's forest resources, with the world of the projects, architecture and design and with the huge universe of constructions.The development model of the Italian system of “LegnoArredamento” relies on the ability to create products that are global icons of quality, style and uniqueness. A development model that is able to put in the foreground of the international consumers perception the cultural and the aesthetic content of indoor and outdoor furnished spaces, such as essential sources of quality of life. Population and furnished spaces that become more and more laboratories for experimentation and innovation throughout the production system of Italian Life Style.Quote: Rosario MessinaPresidente FederlegnoArredo

24 A focus on “Brianza” This territory can be divided into three parts: Comasca (Cantù, Arosio, Cabiate, Inverigo e Mariano Comense),Brianza ex Milanese of the furniture industry (Lissone, centro significativo per produzione e arredamento; Barlassina, Bovisio-Masciago, Brioso, Cesano Maderno, Desio, Giussano, Lentate sul Seveso, Limbiate, Macherio, Meda, Seregno, Seveso, Verano Brianza)Brianza of the side-sectors: textile and furnishing (Costa Masnaga e meccanica-plastica (Osnago).
25 A focus on “Brianza”The beginning of the story of Brianza is around 1750 : the many farmers who worked the land in Brianza decided to adapt to new requirements and needs, they professionally reconvert .Soon the productive specialization within the shops prevails; shops became school Labs. New figures come to life: connoisseurs, collectors, sellers of raw materials, the carpenters, woodcarvers, Turners, polishers, lacquers, decorators, upholsterers, constructors and everything that we can identify around the furniture area.In Cantù, in the first half of 1800, the furniture production becomes artistic production and in 1882 an art school for the décor is created. From 1840 to born large industrial companies and between 1867 and 1967 the production comes to its climax, with Cantu and Lissone centers of the Brianza style.
26 A focus on “Brianza”The craftship context is typical a large company fragmented and divided into many small family-run shops that are distinguished by an high quality production , although every shop is almost totally controlled by the bigger selling companies known outside the district.The emancipation of the family shops promotes the growth of productiveness and inventive capacities, as well their union has to be seen in the logic of a scale economy aimed to the increase of the productive capacity.After the second world war starts the collaboration with the major protagonists of the contemporary architecture and design. In this period there is also the phenomenon of the immigration in Brianza, from all the regions of Italy.The 21st century is characterized by close collaboration among craftsmen, architects and designers: the production is seen as a daughter of functionality, comfort, but also of beauty and harmony.The most famous names of international design, as Philippe Starck, had success thanks to their projects put into the production of the Italian companies. This kind of cases are very numerous in Italy, especially in Brianza.In the furnishing sector there are large districts in Veneto, Marche and Apulia, whose companies in recent years have made their time working with the best designers. To characterize Veneto are, however, different kinds of strategies that can often ensure higher sales volumes that point to other factors such as product and price ranges.
27 A focus on BrianzaBrianza in the first 3 months of 2011 exports in furniture products more than 220 million €, the 11.4% of the total national export, with +6.5% over the same quarter of the previous year. And if we consider all the wood- furniture district of Brianza extended to Como, the export of the first months of 2011 is of 340 million €, almost a fifth of the total of the italian export.The furniture designed and manufactured between Milan and the Brianza "travel" mainly to Europe (68.2%), followed by Asia (18.2%) and America (9.4%).The furniture companies between Milan, Monza and Brianza and Como are about 4 thousand, 15% of the total italian furniture companies. The design companies in this area are more than 2,200 (about 15% of the italian design companies).
28 Brianza and furniture– the evolution for Studiolabo 70-80’s : the big Brianza companies(B&B, Radaelli, Poliform, Moroso…).80-90’s: the big gruops of companies(Gufram, Cappelletti, Poltrona Frau, Cassina …),in some cases the loss of the brand identity.90 – 2000’s:the big signatures and the so-called “Archi-star” (Orchiola, Palomba,Starck, Lissoni …) which work for many companies, npot just for one.Nowadays: the designer and artist are closer. Design as art unique pieces no longer in the series. Galleries of modernism, reflected in the Milan’s fuorisalone where the artististic performance is central

30 SALONE DEL MOBILE 2012Salone del Mobile is the global main event in the home-furnishings sector.

36 FUORISALONE 2012 Prof. Alessandro Sinatra a.a. 2011/2012 Dr. Stefano Crocia.a. 2011/2012
37 FUORISALONE and StudioLabo Begun more than 20 years ago as a spontaneous event, and this is its strength. The main reason why it begun it’s because Italian entrepreneurs who have showroom in Milan-Brera area –didn’t want to play the logic of the fair (repeatable format, the most interesting spaces vs the less expensive ones)Parallel event to the “Salone del Mobile” with a stronger social and entertainment value. Ideated to introduce the products previews of the furniture companies using their showrooms or using unconventional "different spaces" (lofts, galleries, industrial spaces …)Studio Labo : 12 years working at “Fuorisalone”From a problem of the industry: many companies are not structured to face the change of communication (eg. from newspaper to the web)Many different website (fuorisalone.it ...)Rental spaces (the best areas are the Central because they’re the most visited)Consultants for communication, both for the furniture companies and the different ones (eg. Vodafone, Hyundai ... but also a lot of companies that belong to the fashion industry). Being in Brera and Tortona, where the affluence is very high is crucial for companies that are both inside and outside the sector.Collaboration with students of the “university – Politecnico di Milano” who during the fuorisalone make photographs that are immediately published. Fuorisalone live and historical memory.
38 FUORISALONE 2012It stands for all the satellite events that dot the milanese design week: concerts, dj sets, party appetizers, exhibitions and events hosted by the most famous design showroom (concentrated in via Durini e the near area as Artemide, Cappellini, Flos, B&BItalia, Molteni&C, Poltrona Frau) and the indipendent spaces of the young designers that are settled in the cityThe Milan FuoriSalone will be the centre, once again, of many events during the week of the Salone del Mobile. This is not a "fair within the fair", but a spontaneous event where companies decide freely to create an event in a location in the city.
39 FUORISALONE 2012Zona Tortona is localized from Porta Genova to the whole nearby area that has been transformed from the ex-industrial zone to a space of creativity, fashion, design, art. This is the most loved fuorisalone zone by the young audience and foreigners that pours into the streets until late night. Ventura Lambrate is an area that in the last years has been very successful, near to Città Studi. The events organized in the area of Porta Romana see the presence of young designers and students of the most important design institutes, while the “Quartiere Isola” has a green and an alternative soulThe owners of some location of Fuorisalone ask, for one week only, the value of the hiring of a full year: an open space on the ground floor of 150 square meters in zona Tortona, for example, costs € for seven days, € for one.

55 TORTONA DESIGN WEEKIt is the golden triangle formed by Via Tortona via Savona, Via Sthendal. The one from which the fuori salone originated and which presents an endless series of exhibitions in the most unthinkable location.Compared to Brera, which represents the historicity, is the youngest and experimental areaThe nonprofit Tortona Area Lab was formed in 2010 with the aim of enhancing the potential of the area between via Savona, via Tortona and via Stendhal, giving support to activities related to culture and creativity and creating a listening channel to service the territory, able to pick up and amplify the need of a lively district that is changing very fast. The Association has designed, promoted and managed the first communication draft of the Tortona Design Week.
56 TORTONA DESIGN WEEKThe parallel event iSaloni has taken since 2011 a journey of total renewal characterized by the direct involvement of all major entrepreneurial reality operating stably in the zone. Tortona Design Week is an event which aims to support companies and designers who choose to expose in large industrial areas with a communications system designed to give a coordinated image to the event, promoting it on international media, providing useful tools to visitors for an optimal enjoyment and for an overview of the area and its contents.Within the last two decades the milan’s quadrilateral has experienced the transition from a dramatic deindustrialization (with the closure of large industrial plants, crisis of the small artisan workshops and laboratories and the consequent deterioration of the social life of the area) to a "Renaissance" began in early 2000, triggered by the arrival in the area of many big investors related to fashion, art and the creative industry. In particular, with the fuori salone, Tortona has painted itself as an high quality professional reality, a real alternative offered to companies and designers who seek freedom and do not want to bring their own communication to the classic exhibition format.

63 PORTA VENEZIA IN DESIGN PORTAVENEZIA IN DESIGN- is a fuori salone circuit that combines the contemporary design with architectural heritage and the Liberty style decoration that is particularly used in this part of the city.A double circuit: showrooms, shops and companies that expose the novelty of design and art. And, for 2012, a cultural focus centered on the Liberty language.The idea. The design is seen as a link between the different realities of Porta Venezia. Design seen as creativity applied to all sectors. The collaboration between many different realities (commercial and cultural) that are located in the area has been the key of the success of the project.Milan is a hidden beauty. Sometimes concealed, as the Albergo Venezia which hides an incredibly charming Art Nouveau heritag; there’s also the case of “Cortili Aperti” which opens every year in the springtime with corners, patios, gardens and parks inside the private buildings.

66 VENTURA - LAMBRATELast area of design (in terms of time) created in Milan and animated by an international vocation: its location hosts the exhibitions of the most important European design schools with a particular view also to Japan, Canada and Australia.The events in this area have specific characteristics or quality, creativity, and experimentation. An event that has not to be missed, is Making Together: an interactive exhibition that will take place in the “Spazio Logotel” , where a sequence of work in progress will engage the viewer in the experience of design.
67 VENTURA - LAMBRATEMainly the artists/designers are not italian – for example this year there’s the attendance of the prestigious Royal School of Arts, and the Design School of Eindhoven. The design researches are often of young designers that have a strength and an impact capacity higher than we could expect, because they consider not just the mere appearance of objects but their role in the aesthetic, in the production process, and, eventually, into society.Bags that become shoes, shoes that become furniture, newspapers that become wood, bottles shaped into jewelry. As in the Florie Salnot’s project called Plastic Gold. Materials which are not easy to dispose of. The main purpose is to give new uses, creating low-cost items to reduce pollution. They can even create from a radio from the waste...
68 VENTURA – LAMBRATE Kiki van Eijk Don't miss the new collection called “Textile sketch” drawned by Kiki van Eijk and presented in the Galleria Plus design, Via Ventura .6.The beloved Eindhoven designer, in addition, will be celebrated in 5 stunning showcases created for Hermès. The theme is about time and how much it could be precious … The most beautiful jewel in our possession. The showcases are a story on many different aspects of time.

70 Triennale (Cadorna)Design as a graphic sign at the Triennale Design Museum (viale Alemagna 6).With the “TDM5: grafica italiana” we take a further step in the discovery of the visual culture. There’s also a tribute to architecture studio De Pas, D'Urbino and Lomazzi to whom we owe the famous armchair called Joe, shaped as a baseball glove, historical piece from 1970.Lorenzo Damiani is the protagonist of the third and final outfitting a sort of his signature of the House. Its objects are scattered in the spaces of the Triennale, with the desire to unleash the thrill of a treasure hunting. Among the dozens of the productions guests we can admire the armchairs “Iperbolica”, eleven pieces full of colors and very cozy, designed by Alessandro Ciffo, made of silicone and filled with polyurethanic foam.The Lunar environment created by Lasvit which proposes a Crystal area signed by designer Ross Lovegrove, while we can find (in black and white portraits on large format) the bricks that make up the “Future Roots” exhibition wanted by Hogan.Between the photographs-signed by Ornella Sancassani-we find the so called archi-star Zaha Hadid and Gae Aulenti, Santiago Calatrava, Tadao Ando and the current culture Councillor Stefano Boeri. We can also find the creative solutions presented by designers coming from Belgium, from the couch “Mutation” that seems a bunch of grapes (the artist/designer is Maarteen de Ceulaer); the big couch in textile patchwork style called Lichtbed created by Chevalier-Masson; the carpet cherry-colored called Looping well-suited both for exterior and Interior spaces.
71 MECENATE AREA DESIGNThe MAD project has the purpose to promote and bring out the Mecenate Area through a careful communication plan created “ad hoc”, and an accurate selection of designers and companies, in order to make the area a synonym of quality and professionalism.This can be obtained by a guaranteed visibility on devices dedicated to individual events (website, map paper, etc.), a presence on the fuorisalone.it website for 12 months and a communication support to all initiatives organized.LOCATIONS:OFFICINE DEL VOLO - via mecenate, 76/5STUDIO 90 - MilanoVia Mecenate 90SPAZIO ANTOLOGICO - Via Mecenate, 84/10
