Milano Design Week

Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone 2024

The Breakfast events debut at the Bocconi Campus Domus for the Milan Design Week 23

What is design? To answer, distinguished guests will join our editorial director Walter Mariotti within the context of the Bocconi Campus designed by Sanaa. Here’s the calendar and all the useful information.

For this year’s Milan Design Week, Domus launches Domus Breakfast, a series of events in which our editorial director Walter Mariotti will interview prominent figures in the design, architecture, and business field from the Italian and international scene.

During this initiative, Domus will partner up with Bocconi University. Breakfast will take place every day from April 17th to 21st from 8:30am to 10:30am at the new university campus designed by Sanaa. Domus Breakfast is meant to be a context to talk about crucial topics in a convivial setting, as well as an opportunity to kick off the busy days of Design Week in the best possible way. Registration for each breakfast session is mandatory.

For the occasion, Domus’s digital editorial staff will move to the Campus to report about the Design Week as it takes place. Moreover, Domus will host a dedicated exhibition inside the campus and a guided tour of the new complex designed by the renowned Japanese studio Sanaa.

During each panel, a series of guests that represent various aspects of the design world will analyze the development of this filed by discussing, presenting, and explaining what design it is today and how it is applied to different contemporary dimensions.
