During May 2019 will take place the first edition of free lessons open to the public organized by Level.
Design week is over and like never seen before, the number of visitors that attended the Salone del Mobile this year in Rho and Fuorisalone were exceedingly high. Moreover, professionals weren’t the only ones visiting the design booths, as many individuals merely curious and passionate about design showed up and examined the installations and exhibitions of various famous “archistars”, searching for new stimulating content.
The attention towards the Design World is quickly growing: the public is becoming fascinated with the design process and its innovative results, while magazines and webzines are developing new sections to talk about international and Italian Design.
To spread a part of the Design World and help understand its specifics, Level Office Landscape is continuing with its cultural project through the development of the first edition of Design per tutti (Design for all), releasing during May 2019. Through instructive lessons and welcome open debate, its objective is to examine a fresh and informal perspective on design projects aimed towards professionals and students alike, to all those passionate about this topic.
Born after the “Design is not a serious affair” event held on the 4th of October 2018 during an evening at the Merate Brianza Rotary Club, hosting guests such as Paola Antonelli (New York MoMa’s Design Senior Curator), this project was developed thanks to help and support of many partners and collaborators.
