Opened earlier this month to coincide with the city’s NYC x Design festival, the new Tom Dixon Soho / Manhattan outpost forms the “USA East Coast hub” for the brand, complimenting the existing store in Los Angeles.
The late 19th century showroom at 25 Greene Street, Soho, New York now showcases Tom Dixon’s rapidly expanding catalogue of lighting, furniture and home accessories in a generous 625 sqm twin floor retail store setting
The Design Academy of Eindhoven ( DAE ) alumni presented their graduation projects in Milan, Italy: at the Lambretto Art Project Building.
The ‘self’ in the exhibition title still first and foremost refers to the student. The Design Academy of Eindhoven is fully focused on the talents, preferences and fascinations of its students. For their graduation they have to initiate projects themselves, in which these come to the fore.
But when you look at those projects – about healthcare, open source production, new economic systems – they come across as pretty altruistic. Contemporary design is very much oriented toward the ‘unself’.’
NTERNI gathered, in the magnificent setting of the Università degli Studi of Milan, the original contributions of internationally acclaimed designers and companies of reference in the field of innovation and research, transforming the exhibition site into a creative and intellectual workshop in the open air, in which to develop proposals for the city of the future, with a particular focus on the subject matter of the Expo Milan 2015.
