Salone del Mobile Milano
Expectations are riding high for the innovatively conceived Workplace3.0 exhibition at the 2015 Salone del Mobile.Milano, from 14th to 19th April.
Michele De Lucchi has put his name to a special project, building on the theme first explored in Jean Nouvel’s 2013 Office for Living exhibition/event. Where
Rho Milan Fairgrounds, from 14th to 19th April.
An event that simultaneously focuses on each individual component of the workplace, from furnishing to finishing touches, utilities, technology, lighting, acoustics and climate control. Everything professionals need when designing turnkey solutions (from major new-build suppliers to small and medium-sized office furnishings). An exhibition crammed with design ideas and triggers for inhabiting workplaces in their myriad present- day forms. As Michele De Lucchi says: “Technology has changed everything, leaving us freer to organise things the way we want them and enabling us to work anywhere, at home, in the train or even in the park.”
Work changes and keeps on changing. New types of work have emerged, along with new ways of working, new workspaces and new design demands for making them “liveable”. Workplaces will increasingly become spaces for social interchange, meetings and co-existence, freed from the constraints of their containers and shaped by need.
The sectoral trade fair scenario changes according to market demand. In response to requests from both manufacturers and operators, the Salone del Mobile is showcasing a new exhibition project, devoted to design and technology in workplace planning. Companies will work on workplace designs singly or together in the areas set aside for them, i.e. they will provide their take on these changes and come up with complete design solutions.
“We should think of the workspace as a gymnasium for the mind, conceiving it as a place where relationships generate new ideas and possibilities. Offices of the future should be visualised with the focus on lifestyles unfettered by convention, evolving spaces that perpetuate an endless stream of new ideas”, says architect Michele De Lucchi.
De Lucchi is the author of an exhibition/event to be showcased in the middle of the Workplace 3.0 pavilions, aimed at transmitting design suggestions and thoughts specifically targeted at the workplace.
