Milano Design Week

Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone 2024

Milano Design Week 2024. What to see, day 1

Fuorisalone kicks off: on this first day of Design Week, we invite you to take a tour of Milan. From the Alcova villas in Varedo to the Design Variations garage in Darsena, passing through Nendo and the return of Baranzate Ateliers.

As Design Week returns to Milan, it brings with it the usual mammoth panorama of events – more than 900 in 2024 – that not only transform the city but also write a new chapter in the history of the Fuorisalone.

While the traditional districts of Brera, Tortona, and 5vie remain fixtures, this year there is a notable trend to venture beyond these boundaries, redrawing Milan’s design map and extending its reach even further – yes, once again – beyond its usual limits. Alcova opens the Bagatti Valsecchi and Borsani villas in Varedo, in the Brianza furniture district. Baranzate Ateliers is now on the ring road leading to Linate Airport, while Design Variations has found an unconventional home near the Navigli, hidden inside a house designed by Zanuso. Milan is an unexpected pleasure at every turn. This year’s revelation is Design Week’s enduring ability to surprise.

As we eagerly await the opening of the Salone del Mobile at the fair, we’ve curated a selection of venues to explore today, taking you on a journey through a Milan that extends beyond the confines of its city center. Browse through the gallery to discover them.
