Ventura Lambrate

8 - 13 April 2014
Milano, Italy

In this fifth edition, Ventura Lambrate reconnects with past participants and welcomes collaborations with new exhibitors from around the globe. The theme Team Up takes the lead. More than ever, this year revolves around the basic idea of meeting: meeting the designers behind the works, meeting the right parties to realise prototypes, meeting other collaborators, influential opinion makers – you never know who you'll bump into at Ventura Lambrate. Collaboration features prominently and the continued strength of international design academies keeps education at the forefront of Ventura Lambrate. Returning after its successful debut last year, Ventura Lambrate’s very own newspaper, now called Ventura Daily, publicises the latest happenings every day.

For the first time, Ventura Lambrate ventures outside Lambrate with Ventura X. Here, Maarten Baas in collaboration with 5VIE presents BAAS IS IN TOWN in the city centre of Milan. This new format showcases surprising extraordinary projects and collaborations in the spirit of Ventura Lambrate to a wider audience in the city.
