Public Design Festival Milan

Esterni Public Design Festival Banner

Think music festival for urban design junkies. The Public Design Festival, hosted by esterni, is happening in the streets of Milan April 18 – 26, and hopefully it will live up to the festival part of its name.

Taking place at the exact time and city as the Salone Internazionale del Mobile (International Furniture Fair) the Public Design Festival is intended to steer people’s attention away from private spaces, showcased in the furniture fair, and attract ideas and discussion about the public spaces we all occupy and interact with from day to day. Along with workshops, discussions, and displaying esterni’s own public enhancing ideas, the festival will host the 10 winners of an open competition for anyone to take back public space by designing an urban intervention in a conventional parking spot (2x5m). From the videos of last year, the hype material, and the overall atmosphere that esterni is trying to create, it looks like this festival is going to be one fun party for any footloose design kids that can make it to Milan in April.
