For the 8th edition of Ventura Lambrate over 115.000 visitors have found their way to the Lambrate area to see the varied designs of 126 exhibitors, and the opening event has never before been so well visited.

This year we see in the works of our exhibitors the following themes: Lamp, light and beyondIt’s all in the materialSocial design and cultural heritage. We are proud to announce that three of our participating academies – Central Saint Martins, Design School Kolding and Umprum – have been nominated for the prestigious Milano Design Award. For these students it is an incredible boost to have their work acnowledged on such a stage and for Ventura Lambrate it underlines the importance to continue to show the works of young talents and academies.

In each edition we have the pleasure to host a special project, this year the result of the collaboration between Atelier Mendini and our exhibitor Ecopixel has been shown in Ventura XV together with a visual installation at our press desk in Ventura Centrale.

For the floorplan and logo Ventura Lambrate collaborates with graphic designers Loudmouth&Ramdath Mos. To create a temporary logo, the designers decided to pay homage to the De Stijl art movement, which has its 100th anniversary this year.
