The new project by MOVIMENTO for Milan Design Week 2023
The two chosen spaces will host the sixth physical exhibition of MOVIMENTO, presenting a global selection of contemporary design objects, each offering a window on the world stage. With a strong focus on new brands, projects and independent designers, Merging and Emerging brings together some of the best-emerging talents from around the world, in addition to the work of some of the most established creatives. Furnishing accessories from Mexico, the United States, Dubai, and Australia will be on display, to name a few. Many of the objects on display are previously unreleased and the established global reference point for the design industry, Milan Design Week, was chosen as the showcase. “La Celebración” mirror is an example of this with its soft shapes and hand-woven frame in natural fiber (Joy Valdez – Mexico); or “Bright Things”, floor lamps made by hand with layers of gesso and colored with raw pigment, the image of perfect imperfection (Jordan Fleming – Australia); or the “Chair 0.1” seat with an aesthetic that is simple and attractive while conceptually complex: its pristine white surface contrasts with the internal frame, made of solid, sturdy metal (Kameh — Dubai).
MOVIMENTO, in keeping with its nature, follows a path of synergies, sharing and contamination. The main Merging andEmerging exhibition location and where the new Fuorisalone 2023 path unfolds, is the HQ of Domingo Communication in the heart of the Porta Venezia District, a constantly evolving Omni-Channel strategic hub, whose role as a container and amplifier is for the spread of culture, design and visual arts is confirmed. The journey begins with the four floors of the ‘Domingo Building’ in Via Sirtori 25, an exhibition that continues in Via Sirtori 6 in the Domingo Ground spaces – Domingo’s open innovation, a communication research laboratory and platform for professionals whowork at the intersections of design, technology, fashion, culture and multimedia content – with an incursion into the projects by Studio X, never before seen resin vases in which aesthetics speak the language of the fury of the object. The concept behind the new MOVIMENTO exhibition project Merging and Emergingis Futuresigns, a studio practicing design and architecture for the future based in Milan and London, which today, precisely because of its multifaceted nature, crosses established boundaries and works through experimentation, research and functional practicalitywith transverse influences including design, culture, fashion and sustainability.
