Materials Village

Material ConneXion Italia will be presenting Materials Village at Milan Design Week, April 4th–9th. Now in its third successful year, Materials Village is a hub of events and initiatives to promote materials, sustainability, new technologies, and manufacturers on an international stage. The village design is based on a series of houses and view boxes, each with a dedicated innovative theme. Design companies worldwide travel to Milan to exhibit within the village.

This year’s Materials Village will once again live in the Art Garden and Lounge of Superstudio Piú. “New Materials for a Smart City,” an exhibition curated by Material ConneXion Italia in partnership with the City of Milan, will give visitors insight into the role of material innovation for smart cities. Different subject areas will delve into technology and materials that improve life in major cities, including sustainable solutions and information sharing technology.
