What is it?
Isola Design District was founded in 2017, to create a network of exhibitions and installations in the Milanese neighborhood Isola during Milan Design Week, aiming to be the favorite destination for emerging designers and independent design studios or brands.
During Dutch Design Week 2019, in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, Isola Design District was the first and only Italian design district ever to take part in a foreign design event. Now it's an integral part of the program.
Finally, in June 2020, Isola Design District also became an online curated platform. Giving even more visibility to its design community all year round, with several digital services such as designer profiles, project pages, interviews, articles, virtual exhibitions, and much more.
