As always, Ventura Lambrate puts a strong emphasis on the development and usage of new materials. During the 2017 edition a range of projects will show how designers rethink resources, discover new processes and discuss the implications of material use for the environment. The re-evaluation of materials is even more important in a time when technologies are evolving but resources are diminishing. In addition to some in-depth material research, the Ventura Lambrate visitor will be able to see final products showcased, each being the result of unusual materials utilisation or material combinations.
A lively and exploratory interest in lighting illuminates our Ventura Lambrate 2017 exhibition spaces, where designers look beyond the mere aesthetics of lamps and investigate the effects that lighting has on its surroundings and on those who view it. The participating designers search for new methods and techniques for recreating natural types of light and seek the perfect balance between light and colour, transcending the ordinary lamp.
In the grand and freshly restored hall of the Milano Central Station, designers and press gathered today when Ventura Projects held a press conference to introduce their two projects for the Salone del Mobile 2017: the 8th edition of Ventura Lambrate and the newly launched Ventura Centrale.
Now that we are at the beginning of the new year, this also means that the eighth edition of Ventura Lambrate (4-9 April 2017) will be starting in less than three months! We are proud to share with you the first confirmed names! Ready for take-off – destination Milan?
