Ventura Lambrate is Ventura Projects’ flagship event held during the annual Salone del Mobile/Fuorisalone in Milan. During this week, the district of Lambrate in northeast Milan hosts a thriving design district that showcases the latest developments in international contemporary design.
Ventura Centrale is Ventura Projects’ new hot spot in the heart of Milan located at the Central Station. After years of silence, the street level locations, which were previously used as laboratories, depots and warehouses, will open their doors. This iconic building offers labels, companies and established designers a unique opportunity with all the advantages of a blank canvas.
First there was Milan, now there is Manhattan! Ventura Projects is proud to present Ventura New York - the Dutch edition. Ventura Projects collaborates with the Consulate General of the Netherlands to offer the participating designers acces to the American market. Laying groundwork for years to come, Ventura Projects hopes to establish a Dutch settlement for young Dutch designtalent in New York City.
Ventura Projects joins forces with Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk to establish Ventura Interieur, an independent curated exhibition platform within the renowned design biennial. The exhibition complements the event's business setting with creative energy from academies, independent designers, new brands and institutions. Through this platform, Ventura Interieur showcases the latest developments in contemporary design and the broader cultural sectors related to design to a wider audience, and brings exhibitors closer to the commercial sphere.
After Milan (Ventura Lambrate), Kortrijk in Belgium (Ventura Interieur) and Berlin (Ventura Berlin), Ventura Projects is invited to participate in the London Design Festival. In partnership with designjunction, Ventura London creates an independent exhibition area focused on young talent. The dynamic mix of established labels showcased at designjunction with experimental and innovative work curated in Ventura Projects' trademark style is what marks this collaboration. In the spirit of Ventura Lambrate, Ventura London feels immediately at home in the industrial surrounds of the Sorting Office.
Ventura Berlin is Ventura Projects' first foray outside Milan, where a curated exhibition area is integrated into Qubique, the professional tradeshow for furniture and interior design. Based on the successful concept of Ventura Lambrate with its focus on quality and content, the special edition of Ventura Berlin presents innovative contemporary design in a coherent exhibition set in the lobby of the former Tempelhof Airport.
