MILAN.- A cultural centre populated by inflatable installations and giant flowers, hosting rooftop campsites, and gathering Italian and international performers and designers on the occasion of the Design Week in Milan: BASE Milano is looking forward to presents WE WILL DESIGN, the program that since 2021 promotes the best of architectural research and design experimentation from around the world. This year’s edition is titled The Convivial Laboratory, and it invites the public to reflect on the most innovative practices of coexistence, cohabitation, and sharing.

Alongside the installations TALAMO by Lemonot and FLOWAIR by Ingo Maurer, and the residency projects Convivial Laboratory – the Camp and Temporary Home, BASE will host projects by 29 artists and designers in its area EXHIBIT. The program is made possible by the collaboration with STIMULERINGS FONDS / CREATIVE INDUSTRIES FUND NL and Italian and international universities and academies.

Participants include Agora du Design, a French association that every two years, with the support of the French Design Granted, selects two projects for the Design Research Grant and one for the Design Exhibition Grant. This year, BASE will present the winners of the 2021 edition: Marine Rouit-Leduc will introduce her project, which explores colours in the visual spectrum; Hors-studio (Rebecca Fezard and Elodie Michaud) will show their research on ways to recycle waste materials; and Emma Pflieger and Antoine Fœglé will present their installation, Keep It Flat, which collects artefacts associated with flat earth theories.

The collaboration with the Eindhoven-based cultural centre for arts and design, Onomatopee, culminated in The Body is a Movement, a gym-workshop aimed to develop connection between one's own body and those of others via acceptance, celebration, and sharing. The Embassy and Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands supported the initiative, which was organised in partnership with Baltan Laboratories.

Along with this, Laura Papke and Nino Basilashvili will set up a sensory installation on heartbeats, Yeon Sung will present a work on pollution in the Maasvlakte industrial zone, Dóra Léhy and Qiaochu Guo will invite the public to rediscover the relationship between their bodies and space.
