milan design market is a project created by blank, a creative agency based in milan. it’s a space dedicated to emerging designers and brands, who can exhibit and sell their creations, but also network and develop new business opportunities during milan design week.
2018 is the third edition of milan design market during milan design week. also this year will be one of the main events of isola design district and will be organized within the beautiful loft of 400 sqm, in the courtyard of via pastrengo 14.
many new features await you, starting with a pop-up concept store, where visitors can discover and buy products of emerging international designers, handpicked between more than 1.000 applications. in addition, there will be 5 areas dedicated to italian startups and design studios, with a total of almost 100 projects displayed, between interior design and furnishing accessories.
the setting up of the space will be managed by the creative director elif reşitoğlu, with the aim of creating ‘imaginary landscapes’. you will then be involved into architectural environments designed by the dutch architect sven jansse and printed on a 1:1 scale, which will be scenography of the exhibition.
beside the exhibition there will be a design bar set up by the experimental designer federica cristaudo and managed in collaboration with birrificio la ribalta and ink eat, as well as daily dj sets and events, mostly during the happy hour (18: 00/21:00).
the idea was very simple: a space where emerging designers and brands could exhibit and sell their creations during milan design week, even with a low budget; a space where they could network and develop new business opportunities.
last edition of mdm was hosted by a beautiful 400 square meters loft, where 35 designers came to showcase their products from all over the world, meeting around 13.000 visitors. soon mdm will be also an online platform where designers can have visibility and sell their products through an e-shop.
