INTERNI DESIGN RE-EVOLUTION confirmed and exceeded expectations at FuoriSalone 2023 that gave the design project community a great gift in terms of research, sustainability and the future.
From 17 to 26 April, the event, created and coordinated by the Mondadori Group magazine directed by Gilda Bojardi, has produced record numbers, recording an audience presence of 400,000 people in the three institutional venues: the University of Milan, Eni Space in the Botanical Garden of Brera, and the Audi House of Progress at the Portrait Milano. It’s also been a great public success in its two satellite locations: Eataly Milano Smeraldo and De Castillia 23 by Urban Up | Unipol. In addition, more than 150,000 users viewed the first fully digital installation at the Torre Velasca.
This edition of the exhibition has translated the concept of Evolutionary Thought into experimental installations, intended as a design tool for new known and unknown territories: physical and digital, multimedia, present and future.
With the contribution of the 3 co-producers (Audi, Eni and Whirpool) and in collaboration with companies and institutions, INTERNI has gathered more than 40 famous and young Italian and international designers and architects and some artists, in a fusion between Architecture, Design and Art. For the exhibition, 40 installations, micro-architectures and macro-objects have been created, all site-specific that – together with conferences, talks, live performances and showcases – have created a varied mosaic of styles and visions, as well as time for discussion, attracting thousands of people. Visitors included large numbers of Italian and international journalists, who provided excellent coverage for INTERNI Design Re-Evolution in the daily papers, on radio and TV, in the trade press and in popular magazines, and ensured a continuous presence for the exhibition on the main social channels and the web.
The INTERNI exhibition confirms its place as the iconic event of the FuoriSalone, created as an initiative of the magazine’s editor, Gilda Bojardi. The foundation of its success is the outstanding design and cultural content of the installations, the internationally famous brands involved, flanked by smaller operations who also offered exhibits of great interest.
The exceptional response from both the public and the media reflects the absolute leadership of INTERNI in the professional living sector and in design system communication.
