During Milan Design Week 2019, Digital Detox Design invites you to "Living Experience".
Living Experience is the event conceived to take a break from the digital overload, to breathe and interact with space, matter and people in a pure and genuine way. Our desire is to elevate design’s scope, beyond the creation of furniture pieces and products, and nurture our deepest need: being human.
Created and curated by Alessio Conti, this event uses materials, colours and light to connect people within the most powerful network: the human one. Our goal is to investigate how design can help us connect to such network.
On the fourth floor of Via Solferino 11, you will not find any special effect but, instead, a welcoming and essential space to recharge our depth, silence and presence. It is a “whatever” space that, to paraphrase Agamben, is not "whatever" no matter what, but such that it always matters.
