A letto con il DESIGN - Design Hostel

"Sleeping with DESIGN - Design Hostel" is an original proposal in the panorama of events taking place in the city during the Milan Design Week 2017.

The project seeks to approach design from “behind the scenes”, and literally enter into the life of projects and people thinking and making them. It’s a space that resembles a hostel, a temporary home or a “liveable factory”, which hybridizes and reinvents all these typologies together. It’s a project that reflects on the theme of hospitality, hosted inside an early 20th century factory building, which is open during the design week to people who “think and make” design.
The protagonists of the project have been welcomed in a temporary hostel which came to life among the analog and digital factory machinery; every designer guest of the structure provided a design project to be displayed in a customized setting, designed as a sleeping area. These products constituted an exhibition visitable throughout the Milan Design Week; an exhibition that led us, step by step, through the “design rooms”.

The aim of the call was to select 40 designers or groups of designers who proposed a design for a small space (about 8sqm) within the factory. During the day this space functioned as an exhibition area for their products and during the night the space served as a sleeping area.

The participation was open. Designers of all ages and nationalities could apply.
